Win tickets to the launch of the Ballroom at the Black Dog Blackdog Ballroom's private room

Blackdog Ballroom is a New York-style 'speakeasy, diner and poolroom poolbar' in the Northern Quarter. It opened last November with promises that a cocktail list and a 'secret' private room would be launched soon. That time is now here.

On Wednesday 10 March at 8pm the Black Dog Ballroom is having a launch party for 'the Ballroom' – a self-contained hideaway with its own bar and pool table and space for 60 hipsters inside. It can be hired for parties and events.

The long-awaited cocktail list will also be launched at the party. We've had a sneak preview of the menu – it reads like a drink-soaked, subway tour of New York City with each section of the menu representing one of the five boroughs.

Manhattan is twisted American classics, Staten Island is foreign fancies, Queens is tasty, tacky, sweet thirst-quenchers, the Bronx is old-style, sophisticated libations, Brooklyn is independently-minded, avant-garde creations. There's about 15 drinks on that list that we want to try straight away.

Peter Hook will be DJ-ing at the party and all guests will receive a drink on arrival and cocktail samplers throughout the evening. It's going to be one hell of a Wednesday.

If you'd like to go, we've got six pairs of tickets to give away – one pair for general readers, the rest for Friends and Heroes. Friends and Heroes get more chances to win stuff like this and first-come, first-served invites to bigger events, plus loads of other benefits – click here to find out more.
