Now this is a takeover we’re excited about. Simone Caporale’s award-winning SIPS (which bagged the No.3 spot on The World’s 50 Best Bars 2022) and acclaimed Boadas Bar are heading to the renowned Donovan Bar, within Brown’s Hotel in Mayfair, for a special consecutive two-night takeover sponsored by Amaro Santoni this September.

Co-founder of both Barcelona bars Simone Caporale will be joining The Donovan Bar’s Salvatore Calabrese, aka ‘The Maestro’, and Federico Pavan, Director of Mixology, for both evenings to deliver a host of outstanding cocktails created in collaboration by three of the world’s best and most iconic bartenders.

Although each venue is individual in style and offering, Simone Caporale, Salvatore Calabrese and Federico Pavan have worked together to create a special menu for both evenings, showcasing each venue’s unique approach to mixology whilst demonstrating their outstanding talents and extraordinary skill. All of the cocktails on the menu have been created using Amaro Santoni, the multi-award winning “dolce-amaro aperitivo” – providing a menu that encapsulates a taste of Italy, Spain and London.

The Donovan Bar x SIPS takeover will take place on Monday 11th September from 7pm-10pm
