Summer in London 2017

With so much going on in London over summer, we’ve picked our favourite events happening across the capital, all just a stone’s throw from a Davy’s wine bar.

Summer of Love at Shakespeare’s Globe

Enjoy a Summer of Love as the London theatre stages an enchanting line-up of Shakespeare’s greatest romantic plays, comedies & tragedies.

Once you have had your fill of Shakespearean drama take a short stroll to hidden gem, The Boot & Flogger. Brimming with genuine character and jovial service, it is also home to some of the most original private rooms in the area.

Summertime at Southbank Centre

Southbank Centre is the place to be this summer. The exciting programme of dance and performance features renowned companies including English National Ballet, Icelandic Dance Company and Cirkus Cirkör.

All this and more events, many of which are free, takes place across six weekends. Tucked away beneath the arches of Charing Cross, just across the river, Champagne Charlies is ideally located for wining, dining and entertaining.

Jack the Ripper Walk

Artillery Passage is home to the site of Jack the Ripper’s final victim and has changed little since the Victorian serial killer roamed the same streets.

Take a tour around East London visiting all of the key sites linked to Ripper before heading to Grapeshots. Inside, the wood panelling, hessian-clad walls and wine related artefacts create a genuine, warm atmosphere, enhanced by our knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Broadgate’s Summer of Sport

Plan your summer of free sport and film complete with popcorn, cocktails and some very special pop-up events at Broadgate’s Summer of Sport.

After watching your favourite team hopefully triumph in the game, visit Bangers for fresh, seasonal dishes from our Barbecue Sharing menu.

Summer Screens at Canary Wharf

Throughout the summer, the screens at Canary Wharf will show a tempting programme of live sport and, films, entertainment, news and cultural events.

Located at Fishermans Wharf overlooking the water, Davy’s at Canary Wharf is just a stone’s throw away for a post-screening meal or drink.

Covent Garden

Buzzing with the excitement of opera and theatreland, Covent Garden is a world-class destination attracting food lovers and fashionistas alike. Live performances of classical music and opera take place in the courtyard of the Market Building opposite The Crusting Pipe throughout the year, from 11 am until the early evening.

The Crusting Pipe is on the lower ground floor of Covent Garden’s vibrant Market Building, an ideal spot for a glass of wine, light snack or substantial dinner inside or alfresco.

Queens House & Greenwich Park

Queens House was commissioned by King James in 1616 for Queen Anne of Denmark. Entry is free so why not see if you can spot the infamous ghost first seen on the tulip staircase, before having a seat on the soft lawn of Greenwich park.

Finally, head to Davy’s Wine Vaults less than five minutes from Greenwich Park and the perfect place to enjoy everything from a quick glass of wine or refreshing Meantime beer, also brewed locally, to a light bite or full Sunday roast.
