4. Summer Bites & Flights

Location: Ely Place

Ever been on a wine flight? ELY Wine Bar has expanded on their Wine Flight experience this summer by adding summer bites. Available between Tuesday and Saturday between 5pm and 6:30pm, you can indulge in one snack, two small plates, and three exceptional wines, while discovering new tasting wine-flight specials each week.

If you want to learn even more about wine, you can opt to go to one of Ely’s Wine Workshops instead.

Embark on a delightful wine journey, sipping and savouring four amazing wines – white, red, rosé, and sparkling – while their wine team covers all the basics.

Pair these delightful wines with delicious cheese and charcuterie, creating the perfect summer wine experience for groups.

3. Whispering Angel pop-up at Café en Seine

Whispering Angel, the trendiest rosé about, has teamed up with Café en Seine once more to open a stylish new terrace known as the Rosé Garden.

This new spot will be open for all of July, from midday to midnight, the perfect setting for some rosé on a hot day. Who needs to be in Provence to enjoy the Whispering Angel experience?
