To celebrate London Cocktail Week, NOLA is very excited to announce that two of our great friends, New Orleans legends, Nick Detrich and Chris Hannah, are coming down to London and will be behind the stick at NOLA, shaking extra boozy cocktails and running industry seminars 2-5th of October.
2-7th of October, London Cocktail Week wristband holders can also enjoy a £6 special serve, 'Jump Sturdy', created by Nick Detrich in honour of the Doctor John classic song. The cocktail sees our bartenders mixing L.N. Mattei's Cap Corse Quinouina Rouge in equal portions with Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac, creme de cacao finished with a rinse of Absinthe and citrus twist.
Some of the events we are hosting this week:
Tuesday, 2 October 8PM-late
Nick and Chris are flying over on the Monday night redeye and are set to land at Heathrow only moments before jumping behind the stick, telling stories and shaking drinks. Even from the very best we expect a bit of jet lag so we've decided to open a few hours later than normal to help the boys acclimatise to their new time zone. Expect a couple of world-traveling raconteurs mixing tasty drinks alongside our team of crack bartenders.
JEWEL OF THE SOUTH TOUCHES DOWN IN NOLA
Thursday, 4 October 8PM-late
Nick and Chris are taking over the bar with a selection of cocktails from their upcoming Jewel of South menu. A world's-first sneak-preview of what to expect when the bar that invented the Brandy Crusta reopens back in New Orleans at the end of October.
TALKING NEW ORLEANS
Friday, 5th October 2:30-4:30PM
Nick, Chris and NOLA's founder James Triffo are going to have a semi-formal, semi-organised sit-down to chat current and classic New Orleans food and drinks. Their new bar Jewel of the South and what draws them to
