Visitors to the London Film Festival will be able to enjoy cocktails in a special pop-up ‘speakeasy’, courtesy of Jameson, the festival’s official spirit.
The Jameson Apartment will offer film enthusiasts a unique and unforgettable experience whilst enjoying a selection of cult cocktails.
To gain entry visitors will need to give a secret password into a phone to gain entry. Once inside, they’ll will be welcomed by a modern day dandy to enjoy the intrigue of the speakeasy in the heart of London.
With low seductive lighting setting the scene and vintage tunes flowing from a gramophone or celebrated DJ, guests will be transported to another era as they experience classic 1920s cinema and sip exclusive cocktails designed by Jameson mixologist Ed McAvoy.
The festival, which gets under way on Wednesday 12th October, will include screenings of George Clooney’s latest movie The Ides of March, Trishna, Coriolanus, Anonymous and the European premiere of 360.
Sandra Hebron , Artistic Director of the BFI London Film Festival, commented: “Film and Jameson lovers alike will be delighted that this year we have a new Jameson Apartment available – a lively social space right in the heart of Soho, providing a unique experience especially for the LFF.”
