 *COMING SOON* The Blend 

What could be more awesome than drinking drams of whisky in this slick new whisky bar pop up? Drinking drams of your very own blended whisky there, that’s what. Chivas Regal is launching The Blend at the Truman Brewery on the 3rd October and it’s going to keep you warm all winter ‘cos it’s staying put right through ’til 4th December. (Did someone say early work Christmas do?).

Geek out learning about the heritage, history and origins of whiskies and if you’re less of a listener and more of a drinker then you’re all good too because you’ll be tasting your way through examples from Speyside, Islay, the Highlands and Lowlands as well as delicate grain Scotch whisky. You’ll be taught by the pros how these are ‘blended’ to create the distinctive Chivas Regal house style and then it’s over to you maestro for ‘Art of Blending’ session where you’ll get to blend your own to take home, or to send to BarChick, whatever.

One hour ‘Art of Blending’ experiences start at £22. Get your tickets here!

 *COMING SOON* The London Shuffle Club

You probably don’t have a freakin’ clue what a Shuffleboard is – that’s probably ‘cos it’s a retro game hot stuff American sailors used to play on their battleships way back in the 1940s. But now it’s heading over to London baby (‘cos we’re well over golf now). It involves sliding discs (known as Biscuits) with a fork thing (called a Tang) along smooth wooden boards and landing them in chalked up targets. Sounds easy enough right? There’ll also be loads of booze, neon, disco choons – and even Prosecco served from a a vintage motorbike and sidecar. Yes date night!

Opening: 12th October

Courts: £40 an hour, no limit on the number of players (bookings open end of September – get BarChick Concierge to sort that) // Open 7 days a week
