If you’re into them cigars and cocktails, there’s a place you can savour both of them at once. For two nights only (21 and 22 Aug), listening lounge and bar Maduro SG hands over the reins to Ago Schiavo, head bartender of exclusive London members club The Arts Club. Inspired by ‘maduro’ — the name of a dark, strong cigar — Schiavo has concocted three cocktails with all the cigar’s sweet, intense smokiness.
Things get even groovier on the 22nd with homegrown neo-soul outfit The Steve McQueens, performing live at the lounge from 9pm-12pm. Renowned for their eclectic blend of jazz, blues, and vintage soul, the band’s sultry sound will wash down your evening’s cocktails beautifully.
