Finalement! The one day of the year when France well and truly overrides British culture in London is back again. That's right, tomorrow is Bastille Day! To ensure that you don’t miss out on the cultural celebrations, spend happy hour empty-handed, or pass up the opportunity to justifiably indulge in macarons all day, we've rounded up the best francophile-worthy events. Now, all you have to do is live it up all weekend long.
Embracing all things French, Vinopolis restaurant is celebrating the country’s finest tipples. Sign up now to join in on their wine-tasting events or Absinthe master class, both spanning right through the weekend.
Soak up the afternoon sun at the Midnight Apothecary Rooftop Bar. Located on top of the Brunel Museum, the
secret garden rooftop bar will be serving up a limited-edition French cocktail for this weekend only. Don't miss out.
Add a French twist to your Saturday night by dancing the night away at the DAB club. Since they're flying in an all-female DJ line-up from Paris, for the “Awaken” club night, you can expect to bust some serious shapes right through to Sunday morning.
Spend Sunday at the Bastille Festival, the free event taking London's Bankside by storm. Fill up on French regional specialities at Borough Market, where there’ll be plenty to choose from, thanks to the 22 French traders on hand.
