This Hallow’s Eve, for the second year running, Discount Suit Company joined forces with the award-winning London Walks for a celebration of the macabre, as well as mixed drinks, during one of our ghoulish Ripper walks.
Guests were greeted outside by their guide for the evening, Simon Whitehouse, as well as a liquor-heavy spiced hot punch to warm the cockles on a crisp October eve.
At Discount we’re located plumb in the middle of Saucy Jack’s hunting grounds of yesteryear, so it was only a short stroll until our guests were traversing the dimly-lit streets of Whitechapel and Spitalfields, learning about his gruesome crimes.
They also got a chance to hear about the lesser-known side to the grisly saga – discovering details of the frenetic investigation conducted by police as they struggled to apprehend him on extremely limited evidence.
Two separate walks were conducted on the night, and one more was conducted on 30th due to high demand. All attendees over the two nights returned back to the warmth of the Discount bar to be greeted by a choice between two carefully-curated serves: the red Rum-soaked Rum Ripper, and the jet-black Dark Moon.
Dark Moon – Gin | Fruit Wine | Lemon | Cassis Bitters.
Rum Ripper – Dark Rum | English Tea-infused Grenadine | Lime | Apple | Absinthe | Pimento Dram | Club Soda.
Afterwards, guests were invited to stay behind at the bar, sample some of our menu favourites and while away the rest of the evening with some newly-learned Ripper trivia.
