On the Saturday partygoers can firstly refuel with Number 90’s brand new weekend bottomless Prosecco brunch, which offers a selection of breakfast favourites from Eggs Benedict with Bacon, to Smashed Avocado on Sourdough with Chilli, alongside two hours of refreshing Prosecco refills. Once rejuvenated, music lovers can rejoice for hours of
entertainment; DJ Mohson Stars will provide the afternoon soundtrack, whilst the ‘House Clearance House Party’ will deliver a fun-filled disco house vibe whereby guests can take home the DJ’s vinyl collection as they play it.

Koncept Music will be situated outside with their eclectic record stall for guests to browse through, whilst the glitter station will be on hand to add the perfect Ibiza inspired sparkle for the evening of festivities. Number 90 favourites, Half Baked, will be bringing hot talent Raresh for a late night ticketed event from 11pm to 6am, providing an upbeat soundtrack of house and techno until the early hours.

On the Sunday, guests are invited to relax on the sun-drenched terrace and replenish with one of Number 90’s mouthwatering roast dinners, offering everything from slow roasted aged Derbyshire topside beef for meat lovers, to homemade beetroot, mushroom and spinach wellington for veggies. Sunday is also National Burger Day and it won’t go a miss at Number 90, with an exclusive burger to be served on the day, alongside an array of additional options including fresh and flavoursome vegan salads.

Sunday evening festivities will kick off with live music from the likes of The Knox and Callum Chynoweth, with Phonica Records taking the late night reins until the early hours of the morning, and free entry until 4am. True to any great party, there will be a giant treat-filled piñata competition for guests to compete in, and even unicorn disguised
entertainers playing interactive games with revellers. Throughout the weekend cocktail lovers can indulge in a range of refreshing concoctions, which have all been given a Number 90 twist, such as the ‘Garden Spritz’, which comprises a summery mix of strawberry, cucumber, Boxer gin, soda and Prosecco.

London Espresso Martini Fest 2017!

“Celebrating London’s late-night coffee culture with one of the world’s most iconic cocktails

Gods of boozy coffee, Mr Black, are launching London’s first festival expressly dedicated to the espresso martini. Mr Black’s Espresso Martini Festival will run from 10-12 August celebrating the capital’s most famous cocktail export and including some of the most prestigious cocktail bars.

Working hand in hand with DrinkUp.London, the company behind the award-winning London Cocktail Week, the three-day festival will see 50 top cocktail bars across the city pouring £5 variations on this celebrity of the drinks world. Alongside the eponymous serve, each bar will also be rustling up a unique coffee-based cocktail that makes use of Mr Black coffee liqueur – ensuring that visitors will be spoilt for choice wherever they choose to go.

The apocryphal story of the espresso martini is almost as famous as the drink itself. Legendary barman Dick Bradsell invented the drink whilst working at Brasserie Soho in the 1980s, responding to a request from a patron for a drink to “wake me up and then fuck me up”. Dick Bradsell sadly passed away in February 2016, but his influence on the London drinks scene will endure for decades to come.

Made from Australian grain spirit and beans from Papua New Guinea, Ethiopia and Brazil, Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur has become indispensable to the bartender’s back bar.

The Hoodooist himself is often averse to coffee liqueurs for the tendency toward a rank sweetness and acidity, but Mr. Black is one of those rare liqueurs that hits the mark just right – making it perfect for an Espresso Martini.

The nose is an immediate of coffee and vanilla – raw and powerful. The palate rich with coffee and caramel, but balanced by dark cacao. A finish to coffee and hints of demerara linger.

Expect to see some of London’s best bar’s participating:
Demon, Wise and Partners will be serving up a Black Gold, starring Mr Black Coffee liqueur, El Dorado 12 yr old rum, fresh espresso coffee, house spiced syrup and garnished with dehydrated orange and chocolate chips – No doubt served short and strong, as is their signature style.

Whereas the gorgeous 46 & Mercy will have The Bradsell Manifesto, Mr Black Coffee liqueur, Olmeca Tequila, Jägermeister Manifest, mezcal and fresh espresso coffee.

On the other hand, whisky den, Bull In A China Shop will be serving a double whammy of the Eastpresso – Mr Black Coffee liqueur, fresh espresso coffee, Nikka from the barrel Japanese whisky, matcha tea syrup and yuzu bitters; and Chilpresso – Mr Black Coffee liqueur, fresh espresso coffee, El Dorado 8 yr old rum, chilli liqueur, agave syrup and wood essence bitters.

“Coffee is one of those things that runs deep with people – like sex and religion – so we use our festival as an opportunity to bring people together and indulge a little. We had huge success with the inaugural festival down in Melbourne last year, with tickets for the Friday night session selling out in 60 seconds – so we thought we’d give it a spin here in London.”

Attendees will need to purchase a £10 Festival Pass via DrinkUp.London and download the free app to search for bars taking part.

Once signed up, simply flash your festival pass at each participating bar to enjoy outstanding cocktails at any time over the three days for just £5. Festival Passes for Mr Black Espresso Martini Fest go on sale from Monday, 3rd July via DrinkUp.London and are limited for the first year, so Espresso Martini lovers will need to act fast to snap up one of the hottest tickets around.”
