This Halloween, Discount Suit Company joined forces with the award-winning London Walks for a chilling night of cocktails and 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 them up on a cold October night.
They were then taken around the dimly-lit streets of Whitechapel and Spitalfields, exploring the old haunts of Jack the Ripper and learning about his gruesome crimes. They also got a chance to hear about the lesser-known side to the grisly saga – learning about 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 both returned back to the warmth of the Discount bar to be greeted by a choice between two carefully-curated themed cocktails: the beetroot and Rhum-infused Requiem, and the gin-soaked Saucy Jack.
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.
If you missed this one not to worry! There’ll be plenty more. Keep your eyes peeled for future tours on our website, or sign up to our newsletter.
