The Union Bar Launches 13 Week Pop-Up Bar
Masters of here-today-gone-tomorrow entertainment, The Union Bar, recently launched their latest pop-up bar in Illovo, Johannesburg with blended Scotch whisky brand, Black Bottle. Their basement showcase, festooned in black and gold, will be running for 13 weeks, until 11 June 2016.
The recent launch featured Mal Spence from Scotland, who is Black Bottle’s global ambassador and an internationally recognised mixologist. With more than 16 years’ experience tending, managing and building up the reputation of some of Scotland’s best bars, Spence has a wealth of knowledge. He rubbed shoulders with Jozi’s who’s who and spoke about Black Bottle and its fascinating history that began with the original blend developed by the Graham brothers in Scotland’s Aberdeen, way back in 1879.
The Union Bar with Black Bottle blended Scotch whisky will be open to the public on Thursday to Saturday nights, 18:30 to late, from March 11 to June 11. The venue is the newly converted Norman Goodfellows Dispatch Warehouse, on the corner of Chaplin and Oxford roads, in Illovo, Johannesburg. Set to showcase South Africa’s finest musical talent, as well as offer special events such as comedy and disco nights, cabaret and tattoo evenings, fashion shows and whisky pairings, The Union Bar with Black Bottle blended Scotch whisky will offer something new nearly every week. To keep up to date with the schedule, and to make a reservation, please visit The Union Bar’s website or their Facebook page.
