Islington bar gives locals free cocktails in new menu launch

A new cocktail menu at the Public House was launched in Charles Dickens-style.

The bar in Islington Park Street, Islington, has devised an eccentric literary-based drinks menu and gave revellers free drinks at its launch last month.

All the cocktails derive from literary figures and novels – including The Violet and The Dreadnought – and party-goers were asked to dress as characters from Charles Dickens’ Pickwick Papers for the event.
