Pink cocktails, aphrodisiac oysters, love advice and plenty of lusty jams to get you in the mood — looks like Employees Only’s House of Love has us swiping right...
Don’t get all wrapped up in the myth that Valentine’s Day is just for couples. Whether you’re a single cocktail connoisseur, a serial Tinder dater or in a long-term relationship, you can count on Employees Only to celebrate Valentine’s Day with something a little different. The bespoke cocktail bar is transforming into the House of Love for one night only, and you can expect plenty of pink cocktails, aphrodisiac oysters and a playlist of 70s R&B smooth tunes — we’re looking at you Teddy Pendergrass and Barry White. Oh, and did we mention its resident Lothario will be dishing out some pearls of wisdom?
Yes, for one night only, the ‘Psychic’ neon sign will make way for L-O-V-E. The psychic booth will be taking a break from palm readings, tarot cards and mind-boggling sessions with a mentalist for love and sex advice from resident romance guru, Aziz. Whether you’re pleased with the outcome or all shaken (or stirred) up, head back to the bar for a tipple to calm your nerves.
We’re not talking about just any boozer — the cocktails specials of the night includes all-pink drinks such as the classics like Fraise Sauvage (Tanqueray Gin shaken with wild strawberries and Tahitian vanilla, finished with EO Prosecco) and V-Day exclusives like the Pink Passion (a slushie of vodka, passion fruit purée and lime), the Rosita (Don Julio Reposado, Mancino Vermouth and Campari served over a large ice cube), and the Roselle (Hendrick’s, hibiscus, lime and grapefruit, finished with soda and served long accompanied by a long-stemmed rose — romantic!). If you’re all about surprises, order up the Lonely Hearts Club Special — only the guys at Employees Only knows what goes into it.
