NEW: Beckham's Whisky Club For Spinningfields
 

HAIG CLUB, the new whisky brand recently launched by David Beckham and business partner, media mogul and former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller, is set to launch a new pop-up bar in Spinningfields.

The bar will operate by Spinningfields ice rink - which opens on Thursday 6 November - throughout the festive period from 4pm during the week and 1pm at weekends until late each day.

The ten week pop-up bar - a colloboration between Spinningfields, Fluid Bars (Dockbar and The Lawn Club) and British multinational drinks company Diageo - will occupy the former Long Bar site on Spinningfields Lawns.

Opened on Friday 31 October, the Haig Club at the newly named Reserve Bar will be serving up the new whisky brand alongside a series of events including tasting evenings, whisky talks and 'grooming nights' (careful now).

The bar will be operating by Spinningfields ice rink - which opens on Thursday 6 November - throughout the festive period from 4pm during the week and 1pm at weekends until late each day.

Allied London’s Commercial Director, Andrea George, said:

"Working in partnership with operators Fluid Bars (in which Spinningfields Estates has a significant shareholding), there is a fantastic synergy between Reserve Bar concept and the Haig Club.

"Together with Fluid Bars we are passionate about delivering creative and engaging concepts and we’re incredibly excited to be part of Haig Club's evolving story.”

Crafted at Scotland’s oldest grain whisky distillery – Cameronbridge in Fife – the House of Haig can trace its whisky producing roots back to the seventeenth century making the Haig family Scotland’s oldest grain whisky dynasty, according to Diageo.
