Authentic Cuban rum Havana Club is teaming up with legendary Soho restaurant Kettner’s to launch ‘Nothing Compares to Havana’ – a journey through the story and production of Havana Club, Cuban cocktails and Cuban Music. This immersive experience will run for a limited period only – from the 10th – 13th September.

Spread over the entire second floor of the renowned London restaurant; this informative and fun adventure will allow rum enthusiasts and novices alike to enjoy and learn more about Havana Club. There will also be an opportunity to learn about how the rum is made and get a flavour for Cuban culture, along with a specially designed Cuban tasting menu, created by Kettner’s head chef Yosef Edri.

photoThe journey will start with a brief history on the origins of rum and a master class on how to make an authentic Cuban mojito. The next stage of the experience will delve into how Havana Club rum is produced and offer the chance to sample sugarcane, molasses and aguardiente; key elements illustrating the rum production process. ‘Nothing Compares to Havana’ will then finish with a Havana Club rum tasting session, led by Meimi Sanchez, International and UK Brand ambassador for Havana Club. She will pair some of the brand’s most iconic rums, such as Havana Club Selección de Maestros, one of the higher styles of Cuban rum with a selection of chocolates.

Doors: various

@ London Coliseum, St Martin’s Lane, London WC2

Neville’s Island follows the misadventures of four out-of-condition, out-of-their-depth businessmen on an out-of-control team-building exercise.

Shipwrecked in the Lake District, menaced by wildlife and with only a sausage between them, our unlikely explorers battle the elements and each other as corporate bonding descends into a hilarious carnival of squabbling, French cricket and cagoules.

This celebrated production of Neville’s Island marks the play’s triumphant return to the West End, 20 years after the play was first seen in London at the Apollo Theatre.
