Located in the heart of Soho, the W London is celebrating the Platinum Jubilee in their own inimitable style with the launch of their ‘Yas Queen’ cocktail menu and a one-night-only Drag Party in their first-floor Perception Bar. The hand-crafted cocktail menu is available from 1st – 30th June, with the fun and fierce Drag Party kicking the Jubilee celebration off in style on the 1st June.
The W London’s Yas Queen cocktail menu is full of playful nods to drag culture, including Spill The Tea Lizzie (Bombay Gin, Grand Marnier, Gomme syrup and Earl Grey infusion) and the regal Yas Queen featuring the Queen’s favourite tipple – Dubonnet, Bombay Gin, Cherry Heering, topped with Champagne. Royalists and cocktail-lovers alike can whet their whistle with the floral Royal Shadiness (Veuve Clicquot Champagne with rose liqueur, topped with lemon & rose foam). For those feeling particularly majestic, the Pass The Crown cocktail offers the ultimate taste of indulgence. Priced at £300, guests will not only sip on an elegant flute of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Champagne, Hennessy Paradis Imperial, Brown Sugar Cube, and Gold Leaves, but also ascend to the proverbial throne as they are crowned Her Royal Highness for the night with their very own crown to keep.
On the 1st June, revellers can let their hair down with a one-night-only Yas Queen Drag Party in the neon-lit Perception Bar. The London hotel will undergo a transformation as staff don crowns and tiaras, DJs Lady Lloyd and Josh Harrison spin disco club classics and Drag Divas stalk the bar, cocktail in hand, ready to lip sync for their lives at any given moment. Dressed to impress and ready to raise a toast to the ultimate HRH Queen Elizabeth II, partygoers can expect a royal ‘knees up’ as they dance the night away beneath the disco ball above the hustle and bustle of the streets below.
The W London Yass Queen Cocktail menu is available from 1st – 30th June.
The W London Drag Party takes place on Wednesday 1st June from 8pm – 1am. Entry is free but table bookings are accepted. To reserve a spot, head over to DesignMyNight.
