Live Event - Papi

The international pop-up of ur dreams returns! This time at Freddles Bar! Way back in 2021 @wingnutwines @hot4u_ldn and @vinnatuur joined forces for maybe our all time favourite pop-up. Much has changed since then but the heart of that pop-up still beats strong. For one nasty Friday night we’ll be bringing back that energy, with a classic wine list focused on the ‘21 vintage as well as an a la carte menu of some old school hot4u dishes. Think cheese burger tartare, devilled eggs and mortadella, 10,000 oysters layered in PetNat Jelly.

The evening will be inspired a video from by Salt Bae that plays most morning in my mind. Much like his vision for his sadly abandoned Mykonos plan we will be eating, we’ll be dancing, they’ll be restaurant, they’ll be a night club! Just like Mykonos!

In very exciting news we’ve also managed to lure alt bae to Freddles bar using a simple meat trap so he’ll be performing in some capacity!

Walk-ins only, it’s going to be, quelle surprise, a rager.
