TENNIS AT THE TOP
Wimbledon Tennis is approaching and many bars and venues are planning to offer free screenings, not least Paramount Soho which will be showing the tournament live on special plasma screens from its Tottenham Court road location. Enjoy the tennis 32 floors up with a cocktail. www.paramount.uk.net
CENTRE COURT FOR THE CITY
If the West End seems too far, there’s always The City’s Coq D’Argent which for the length of the tournament is making its outdoor terrace into a screening area serving tennis themed cocktails including “Game Set Match” with strawberries and gin; and “The Wimbledon”, a champagne concoction.
In other news, English wine is continuing to move out of the shadows. To mark its ascent Vinopolis is launching an English Wine Week with wine tastings by resident expert Tom Forrest of award-winning British Southridge and Nyetimber varieties.
