I had never experienced Social and Cocktail events or heard about them till now, I also have never been to the Riding Room so tonight I was looking forward to.
The Event :
We all arrived and were told what the cocktails on offer were tonight, and we could have as many as we liked. This was great as I wanted to try one of each, for research purposes of course.
- Blueberry Sour
- Disco Drumstick
- Strawberry & Vanilla Daiquiri
- Pomegranate Mojito
- Strawberry WooWoo
I started with the Disco Drumstick
I have a sweet tooth so I decided to start with this, as it was recommended by one of the bar staff.
This was my favourite cocktail from the night, it was very sweet and tasted like the lollipop drumstick….and yes thats a Drumstick lollipop inside the glass.
My second one was a Strawberry & Vanilla Daiquiri
This was very nice, not as sweet as my first cocktail but very nice.
You could taste both the vanilla and strawberry, the Vanilla was just coming through enough.
My third was a Blueberry Sour
This was just ok for me, don’t get me wrong it was nice but for me I prefer the sweet cocktails. If you like Blueberry’s then this is the perfect cocktail for you.
My last was a Strawberry WooWoo
The Strawberry WooWoo was again a sweet cocktail, this was another nice cocktail that I would have again.
The Entertainment :
The night started with singer Alana Wilson
This was the first time seeing Alana and I hope it won’t be the last, she was a very good singer and very powerful. I have seen a few professional singers live and Alana was a lot better, I will aim to go back and see her again.
Followed by Kim Khaos who is a Burlesque and Sideshow performer
I have seen Kim Khaos once before, it was at the Glasgow Steampunk Bar. So it was a nice surprise to see her again, and do a different act to what I’ve seen before.
Just like last time she was very good, and got the audience cheering and woooo’ing as she slowly removed her clothes.
Kim was then followed by Tom Harlow

This was my first time seeing Tom Harlow, and seeing a Boylesque performance.
Tom Harlow was very good at his performance, he was perfectly in time with the music and put on a good show. Everyone who was watching really loved his performance, and the bloggers I spoke to said the same.
Overall I had a great time, the cocktails and the entertainment was really good.
If you are planning on having an event like a hen party or birthday etc, do take a look at Social and Cocktails website as they were all really nice drinks and would be a great addition to your event.
I just want to say a big thanks to Social and Cocktail for inviting me to the event, and for the really nice cocktails. I would also like to thank the Riding Room for holding this event, and a big thanks to the entertainment very much appreciated do check everyone out.
