Friday 24th June – Friday 26th August 2011
This summer, with their W Festival Cinema programme, W London is offering music lovers who would really rather not deal with crowds, mud and Wellies, Portaloos, or a bongo collective in the tent next door, a wonderful way to not only enjoy the best performances from an host of the UK’s top music festivals, but also an opportunity to watch a programme of seminal music documentaries. Add to this the luxurious and intimate surroundings of their 39 seater, 3D, state-of-the-art screening room, where guests will enjoy table service, and a special Woodstock inspired cocktail, the Absinthe Martini, mixing Gin, Cointreau, Absinthe, and lemon juice, and created by W London’s exclusive destination bar, Wyld, (Read more about Wyld in Plectrum – The Cultural Pick here) and the season sounds like a wonderful way to spend Friday nights in London.
