There's a moment in everyone's life when they come to a profound realisation: that all of those board games we played as kids are even more fun with booze. You know that you've enjoyed a few hands Uno over a few beers, paired a game of Scrabble with some scotch and combined Jenga with gin. We all have. Now, once a week, you can blend games in general with gimlets.
That's the intention at Dutch Courage Officer's Mess every Tuesday until the end of September. They'll supply both the activities and the alcohol, and you'll only need your wallet for the latter. And if you're wondering what a gimlet is, it combines gin and house-made lime cordial — so you really will get more than a few flashbacks to your childhood.
The evening kicks off at 6pm each week, and if you're bringing a group of five or more, then bookings are recommended.
