Fords Gin Cocktail Masterclass: The History of Gin According to Cocktails

Cocktail+Masterclass

Join FORDS GIN at NOLA, for a cocktail odyssey through the ages whilst sipping on the very cocktails that forged gin’s rich history.

Gin and cocktails have been close bedfellows throughout history. Holding hands through the ages, their connection has endured the ebb and flow of drinking trends. From the early days of gin punch, to the current Golden Age of the Cocktail, the rise and fall of gin and cocktails has been intertwined through history.

Today, gin enjoys unparalleled popularity in the great cocktail bars of the world and no self-respecting bar would fail to give over some of their menu space to juniper-driven concoctions. Gin has a relationship with more classic cocktails than any other spirit, some receiving just a fleeting moment of fame, others enduring timelessly. The history of these drinks charts a rich course through the gin years, one which we look forward to sharing with you.

Tickets are £15 per person and are available here.

He has lived a life immersed in music having started out at an early age following his piano playing father around New Orleans parades, jam sessions and bars, snare drum in hand. Days at home were spent receiving a musical education in the back of his mothers audio engineering studio watching her cut records and listening with keen ears.

Live music night with Ten Bells Rag Band

10Bells Quartet.jpg

This Bank Holiday weekend we're excited to invite you down for boozy cocktails, Southern food and traditional New Orleans Jazz from London’s East End.

Ten Bells Rag Band will be performing at NOLA on Sunday 26th of May from 8pm.

In the early years of the 20th Century, one of the hottest bands around the gin palaces and opium dens of East London were the legendary Ten Bells Rag Band.  Word of mouth at Roman Road market and the oral histories recorded during the inter-war years hold that this band were playing a syncopated form of ragtime blues a clear two decades before the Hot Five.

Sadly, no known recording exists of the band and they were last heard from in 1913. Having gambled all their money away on the train to Southampton they had to busk their passage to South Georgia. Adding further calamity, their guitar player mistakenly booked them on Shakleton’s disastrous Antarctic voyage.  

So annoyed were the rest of Shakleton’s crew by the trombone players morning ritual of shouting ‘let’s see what the weather’s like outside today’, that they marooned the band on floating ice and were never heard from again.

The emergence of a new band in 2018, bearing the same name, some three weeks after rumours that the move of the British Antarctic Survey base had disturbed the perfectly preserved remains of a group of men, a double bass and a washboard, is purely coincidental…

Bookings are highly recommended.

Live Music Night at NOLA with 'Resonatadog'

30171949_589223174775628_8328329019330719929_o.jpg

Nick's been playing and writing songs since.. Well way back. He got a serious Blues bug some 30 odd years ago and naturally fell in with hard hitting acoustic Delta country blues.

Saddling himself with a mission to ‘take it to the people' by way of the streets of London. Having played the style for so long he can seamlessly incorporate along with original songs classic rock numbers, Honky Tonk, Country and Western or an improvised on the spot groove without missing a beat. He plies his trade using a National Resophonic guitar, dirty harmonica and an imposing gritty soulful voice.

Come join us tonight for a few sips of whiskey, a homemade gumbo, and some excellent live music!
