This is a twist on the normal foodie tour we do… As usual your knowledgeable guide will be highlighting the history and fun facts of new and well established foodie shops, members’ clubs and fashionable restaurants… BUT ON THIS TOUR: We’ll be visiting 3 of Soho’s BEST Cocktail bars. Plus, we’ll be entertained with a demonstration and sampling of 4 cocktails at Caram!!! We’ll also stop off at one of London’s best chocolate shops for a talk and tasting.
Feedback from last year:
The cocktail demonstration was amazing, and I learned some new spots to enjoy a proper drink!
Another excellent Meetup from Kelly (and Jo). Fantastic people, cocktails and chocolate. Can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

‘Great day out! I thought I knew a lot about London, but the excellent, knowledgeable guide proved me wrong. It was a good mix of enjoyable people, learning about places I’ve already been and discovering a few hidden gems. Providing the map and links was a real bonus’ Tastourian, Janet
