Guided Cocktail & Chocolate Walk in Soho

  • August 9, 2014 · 3:00 PM

Hello Tastourians!

This is a twist on the normal foodie tour we do...but with more stopping to go into the shops and bars.

As usual your knowledgeable guide will be highlighting the history and fun facts of new and well established foodie shops, members' clubs, fashionable bars & restaurants...

BUT ON THIS TOUR:  We'll be visiting 2 of Soho's BEST Cocktail bars.  We'll also stop off at one of London's best chocolate shops for a talk and tasting.

Feedback from last year:

Another excellent Meetup from Kelly (and Jo). Fantastic people, cocktails and chocolate. Can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

      Thanks for these Joanna, some of us went on to the Mele e Pere restaurant after and the food was very good, would definitely recommend checking it out if you fancy Italian food!
