Callooh Callay | O Frabjous Day
Great cocktail bars will never get old.
Metaphorically, of course.
Because Callooh Callay – which has had awards practically thrown at it over the years – is actually enjoying the laurels of its impressively sustained success by ringing in its 10th birthday this month. Among the various celebrations, you can expect one particularly important thing –
They’re bringing back they iconic Sticker Book menu for one week only. Callooh Callay have always been good with their bar menus. In fact, back in 2012 one of the menu awards thrown at the place was “World’s Best Cocktail Menu” at the Spirited Awards (which are, essentially, the Oscars of the bar world). They’ve since created menus styled like IKEA instructions, Pantone catalogues, and most importantly, Panini Sticker Books.
Inside your menu (which is yours to take home) there are five cocktails listed, each with a blank spot for a sticker. Order a drink, and get a sticker. Complete the album, and you get a prize. The drinks are all throwback from the 2015 menu, and include classics like the Harrison Fords (Fords gin, Lady Grey syrup, apricot liqueur, lemon) and the Popeye & Olive Oil which blends vodka, vermouth, spinach & pine nut orgeat, lemon, sugar, and – you guessed it…
NOTE: Callooh Callay’s 10th anniversary Sticker Book menu is available from the 26th November until 2nd December. You can find out more at their website right HERE.
