This is certainly a partnership made in cocktail heaven, The Union Bar has gotten together with J&B Scotch Whisky to bring their signature brand of pop-up entertainment, innovative cocktails and flair for turning any space into a fully functioning bar back to Johannesburg – yes!
A worthy collaboration that will play on the J&B brand’s legendary whiskies, mixing it up with some of the best mixologists in the country, this union is sure to get the fans of both brands together in a space made for entertainment.
The venue is one that The Union Bar fans know very well, and as requested on social media, is back by popular demand – the Norman Goodfellows Dispatch Warehouse, on the corner of Chaplin and Oxford roads, Illovo, which lends its unique charm to the bold red, yellow and green of the J&B brand.
From the Speyside region in Scotland, famous for single malt whiskies, comes the fruity, fresh quality so sought after by connoisseurs. It is this unique blend and character of J&B Rare that make it so utterly irresistible to cocktail enthusiasts everywhere.
At the J&B Union Bar you can of course try it all. From neat and on the rocks to licking your lips around exotic flavours with outlandish names such as Smoke & Mirrors, Glitter & Grit and Shake, Rattle & Roll – presented in innovative ways and guaranteed to make your winter a little less dreary.
We love that the J&B and The Union Bar partnership also collaborates with various visual artists to bring the physical space to life.
This iteration of The Union Bar is running until 9th September only and there is a R 50 entrance fee – make sure to stay up to date with all the goings on, or make a guaranteed reservation on the website – www.theunionbar.co.za – entrance is free if you reserve a table.
