A Sip & a Show (and a story).

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin ...

In London there sits a hidden cavern,
It's name is Purl; a bright shining tavern.

As one of the best bars in the city,
This ‘secret’ speakeasy is more than just pretty.

People travel from far and wide,
To experience the delights it holds inside.

My story is one of a happy scale,
A chance encounter with a fine young male.

We sipped all evening at this fancy bar,
I’d give it a few, nay five gold stars!

All the cocktails were creatively made,
The flame-popped balloon was a game well played.

Half the way through we adjourned downstairs,
But this was no game of musical chairs.

A piano and bass were playing away,
All manner of jazz tunes to make us sway.

So there we sat for an extra hour,
Just enough time for a whiskey sour.

We left feeling warm and very content,
Purl is the one for your social event.

Booking is definitely a wise plan,
So boys grab your girl and ladies your man.

Here is a gem for the little brown book,
It’s up to you now to go take a look!

  1. I love the idea of writing a blog as a poem! Purl is awesome too, though it gets so hot in summer. Was it like that when you were there?

    1. Haha, thanks! I've just spilled out another few lines of rhyme in my Duck & Waffle post! Luckily I went to escape the delightful English rain when I was at Purl so it wasn't too hot. The Jazz duo were excellent but there weren't that many people there to hear them which was a shame .. need to spread the word!
