The city centre based speciality coffee shop and wine bar’s hidden underground bar is perfect for smaller groups.

Ropes & Twines, a popular city centre speciality coffee shop and artisanal wine bar, has unveiled a new basement bar that’s perfect for Christmas party wine tastings and private bookings. The Bold Street based venue’s wine tastings come complete with a delicious meat and cheese board that includes high quality charcuterie, luxurious cheeses and a selection of breads, olives and dips.

The wine tasting packages which can be tailored to suit everyone, includes a selection of five tastings of red, white, rose and sparkling wines from around the world. Ropes & Twines’ extensive wine selection is rotated every two weeks to keep their offering refreshed and interesting. Wine tastings are no different and the selection of wines will be changed consistently to offer a unique experience every time.

Allison Whorton, General Manager of Ropes & Twines, said: “We know Christmas parties and celebrations will be different this year so we wanted to give office teams and groups of friends and family the chance to celebrate in a more intimate setting. Our wine tastings are incredibly popular and so we’ve added a festive twist for the party season. The wines chosen are all speciality and of a really high standard so you can sample a selection of beautiful wines along with a delicious meat and cheese board. Wine and cheese at Christmas? There’s nothing better.”

It goes without saying all Covid-19 precautions will be in place and it sounds like it’ll be a lovely, safe space to have some much needed fun. And alcohol.
