B&H WEEKEND HOUSE PARTIES
Launching this summer
EVERY FRIDAY AND SATURDAY THROUGHOUT JULY & AUGUST
We don’t know about you, but as summertime rolls around, we always find it just a little easier to relax. Warmer days, bluer skies, blooms in full blossom- London seems lighter, brighter and a little less demanding.
Here at Bourne & Hollingsworth, we’re feeling playful. And as we’re in the mood to let our hair down and have a bit of fun, this July & August, B&H Buildings, our iconic Clerkenwell townhouse, will host its first house party series, a summer-long celebration as an ode to our favourite season.
Every Friday and Saturday until September, we’re inviting you to a series of curated celebrations; evenings of pure high jinks that will combine live music, gorgeous cocktails, hearty street food and our resident DJs spinning records until the wee hours. Warming up outside with al fresco drinks and street-food, the action will gravitate downstairs as dusk sets in and things really gets going in Below & Hidden, our concealed underground party den.
Kicking off with a Cuban spectacular on Friday 19th July, where the venue will take inspiration from the opulent playground of 1950s Havana, succeeding weekends will all have their own distinct flavour. You might douse yourself in tequila and frozen margaritas for our Mexican special, or take a trip to New Orleans with bourbon and old-fashioned blues. It’s all a little bit of fun.

ON THE AGENDA
Friday 9th - Saturday 10th August
Imagine yourself away to a balmy island, replete with coco palms and white sand at our Caribbean weekend fiesta. Steel pans will add to the Caribbean experience, whilst jerk wraps are on the street food menu plus frozen Piña coladas and delicious Mai Tais with a reggae soundtrack.
Friday 16th - Saturday 17th August
Marking midsummer’s Italian holiday Ferragosto, we’re celebrating our beloved Italian spritz for the entire weekend at our penultimate summer party. Aperol spritzes in excess, Italian snacks and acoustic music for the evening.
Friday 23rd - Saturday 24th August (BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND)
This bank holiday weekend we'll be cha cha charing to latino beats, supping on a plethora of South American cocktails and snacking on delicious street food for a bank holiday weekend special.
Friday 30th - Saturday 31st August
For our final weekend, we have taken inspiration from Buena Vista Social Club, the legendary Cuban ensemble who took the country, and then the world, by storm. Expect a range of rum cocktail concoctions, latin and cuban live music and cuban street food.
