Buffalo Trace Launches Prohibition Inspired Pop-­‐Up Bar In Hove

Following its acclaimed launch in London in October of last year, The Buffalo Bourbon Empire is set to relocate to an unassuming street corner of Hove from 25 January 2013.



Brought to you by award-­winning Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, this hugely successful pop-­up bar, inspired by the Prohibition era, will be open for just two weeks.

Secretly located on the top floor of The Wick Inn, Hove, take a step back in time as you ascend the spiral staircase that leads you to a small landing with a guarded door.

Behind this door lies a true taste of a 1920s speakeasy, from its concealed entrance through to the authentic American cocktails served by skilful Prohibition bartenders. 


Whilst savouring an Old Fashioned, discover entertainment from the era, craps and roulette tables and even a Prohibition quiz night.

Discerning Buffalo Trace connoisseurs will also be on hand to offer tastings and masterclasses where you can explore and learn about the world"s best whiskeys.

Warning:: Practice the art of speaking quietly in public about The Buffalo Bourbon Empire so as not to alert the Federal Prohibition agents or neighbours.

RSVP to guestlist@buffalobourbonempire.com with your name, number of guests and preferred date or register for a masterclass at masterclass@buffalobourbonempire.com.
