Burns Night 2017:  Awesome Places To Party in London

Burns Night 2017: Awesome Places To Party in London

The Scots amongst you will no doubt know all about Burns Night but for those of you not from the land of the brave, Burns Night is a festival that celebrates the birthday of famous Scottish poet Robert Burns. It’s basically a darn good excuse to fall off the wagon in Jan and hit up some of the best whisky bars in the city. So don some tartan, chow down on some haggis and have a few wee drams all in the name of a birthday bash!

1. Learn how to cook Haggis with a masterclass at Mac and Wild Devonshire Square

Our favourite strapping Scots, Mac and Wild are going all out this year for Burns Night with a whole week of celebrations. Kicking off their ‘Week of Burns’ they’re hosting a Haggis Making Masterclass where you can learn to make it. Eating blood not your thing?  They’re also running a whisky and beer pairing evening and a celebratory Scottish feast on actual Burns Night. Message us for info and tickets.

Where better to raise a celebratory toast on the 25th then at the whisky mecca Milroy’s? Where else are you going to try a haggis cocktail? It’s a peppery play on the classic ‘Bobby Burns’. It’s made using the hot newcomer of the whisky block R&B Distillers’ Raasay While We Wait whisky and it’s been inspired by the spicing used in haggis. Tasty. To get the party started the bartenders will be giving out a few free drams. See you there! Want in… message us.
