First-ever brand-supported pop-up bar? - Immortalised in PG Wodehouse’s 1925 story The Rummy Affair Of Old Biffy "I have never been in the West Indies, but I am in a position to state that in certain of the fundamentals of life they are streets ahead of our European civilization…. A planter, apparently, does not consider he has had a drink unless it contains at least seven ingredients and I’m not saying, mind you, that he isn’t right.” #BarConventBrooklyn
