On June 12th and 13th, iconic Parisian cocktail bar Le Syndicat will play host to London’s Silverleaf and Mexico City’s Hanky Panky for an epic takeover timed to coincide with Cocktail Spirits. The series will be sponsored by Casamigos, Rémy Martin and The Botanist.
Le Syndicat will be welcoming their guests behind the bar, stocked exclusively with heritage French spirits, in the 10th arrondissement of the city. Each night will see one of the guest bars – Hanky Panky on Sunday the 12th and Silverleaf on Monday the 13th – join the Le Syndicat team, with a one-off menu of five drinks – Le Syndicat will create two cocktails that will sit alongside two creations from the guest bar, as well as blending their distinct styles with a limited-edition collaborative canned cocktail available for one night only.
As well as being the first time Le Syndicat has hosted a London bar in its 8 year history, it also marks Silverleaf’s first European bar takeover since opening earlier this year to wide acclaim.
Although complete opposites in venue style and location, each of the three bars showcase innovation through their inventive menus designed to create new drinking experiences. Le Syndicat’s concept is to champion French heritage and spirits, changing the once outdated perceptions of the traditional spirits by incorporating them with the freshest, simplest, seasonal ingredients to create modern, innovative cocktails.
Similarly, Silverleaf showcases simple core ingredients in its cocktails – from the familiar to the foraged to the totally unusual – highlighting products that are recognisable to their guests yet presented in new and unimagined ways.
Hanky Panky Cocktail Bar is a one-of-a-kind, members-only establishment dedicated to leading and setting the standard of quality service and cocktails in Mexico City’s burgeoning craft cocktail scene. Named for Ada Coleman’s classic cocktail created at the Savoy at the turn of the last century, Hanky Panky serves clever twists on classics alongside original creations inspired by their travels.
