SPRING GREETINGS FROM JOE'S
At Joe Allen we’re making an effort to be different – we’re not sending out an Easter Mailer like everyone else – we might be cooking eggs this weekend at brunch - but we’re leaving the egg obsession to everybody else!
As one of London’s favourite theatre joints we’re turning our attention instead to this Sunday night’s Olivier Awards Ceremony. Several of our friends and customers are involved, will be attending or have been nominated.
This includes our near neighbours at Dreamgirls as well as the fabulous team from Show Boat to name but two. It may have moved to the Royal Albert Hall this year but let’s hope the night still goes with a swing. To mark the occasion our wonderful manager Maxine has been researching suitable cocktails – all available at the bar on Sunday but which can also be made at home if you’re celebrating your Olivier win!
In fact – do any of us really need an excuse to drink lovely cocktails on a Spring day?
