Going Underground

I had the great pleasure of being treated to an afternoon of tea, absinthe and burlesque on Saturday, at the very lovely venue that is known as Cellar Door.

As previously reported in an earlier blogpost, we Hospitality Girls love a bit of risqué humour and nudity to accompany our cucumber sandwiches, and the afternoon did not disappoint.

We got all 'Fluffed Up' by Vicious Delicious, Fan Danced by Bouncy Hunter, and serenaded on the ivories by former Dexys Midnight Runners keyboard player Pete Saunders. Blackjack and cocktails were served up in equal measure, along with the quintessential High Tea that regular readers will know we love. I now even have my very own jar of sandwich spread!

On the way home, we popped into The Criterion Bar and Restaurant for 'just one more cocktail', before (eventually) making our way home in the glittery bubble that can only be gained from the secret world that lies beneath the pavement at Zero, Aldwych.

We enjoyed Finger Sandwiches, Earl Grey Tea and Cupcakes at Cellar Door, interspersed with Champagne and Courtesan Cocktails (Absinthe and other secret ingredients)  followed by Citrus Cocktails (Russian standard vodka, passoa, cranberry juice, grapefruit, watermelon liqueur, served long over ice) at The Criterion. Happy Daze...
