Mad Hatters Midnight High Tea

Leave the madness of Courtenay Place behind and join in for nonsense and sensibili-teas as The Library becomes a late-night haven for a tea party like no other. The award-winning bar team at The Library will have a special menu of tea inspired cocktails with spectacular fogs, mists, lights and colours and live music to accompany dining and a menu of midnight snacks which can be a little more decadent given the hour.

Scrabble Small Plates

Sharpen those pencils and come along to play the world’s favourite word game at The Library where you will be provided with small plates of Scrabble inspired food and drink. Dishes are inspired by recent additions to the Scrabble dictionary so the food will not only be delicious but may even inspire a win. The game becomes easier as the night goes on and The Library have come up with their own list of “high scoring” cocktails: a mojito (13 points), shaken with aquafaba (22 points), with some arancini (10 points) on the side.
