Oriole Bar to host its final takeover

On 28 November, Copenhagen cocktail bar Ruby will be coming to Oriole in Smithfield Market, marking the final takeover hosted by the jazz club and bar before its closure at the end of the year.

The event, which will be taking place on Monday from 6pm until late, is the third and final in a series of takeovers inspired by the three geographical sections of Oriole’s menu: Asia (when Singapore’s Nutmeg & Clove was hosted), the Americas (with Mexico City’s Licorería Limantour) and Europe.

Ruby, which was opened in June 2007 in the Danish capital by partners, Adeline and Rasmus Shepherd-Lomborg, will be presenting four drinks, alongside four from Oriole. The cocktails have been concocted in collaboration with The Macallan, Haku Vodka, Roku Gin, Laphroaig, and Courvoisier Cognac.

Among the cocktails be served throughout the evening will be two specialities of Ruby: the funky and aromatic Rinse and Repeat (Ketel One vodka, raspberry, camomile and saké) and the fruity and fresh The Nude Way (Naked Malt Whisky, whey, tomato, black tea and sour cherry). There will also be a number of other cocktails throughout the evening.

Though it will be the final takeover at Oriole, after founders Edmund Weil and Roisin Stimpson reached a surrender deal with The Corporation of London due to the ongoing redevelopment of the Museum of London and Smithfield Market, there are plans relocate Oriole to a new, central location in summer 2023.

Reservations for the event can be made here.
