Cocktails at The Riding Room: bring a helmet

Just a brief mention for The Riding Room, a new late night venue in the Merchant City which is promoting itself on the winning formula of liquor and cabaret.

Sat between The Polo Lounge and Delmonica’s, the Virginia Street joint promises ventriloquists, magic, exotic dancers, comedy, burlesque and cocktails which could sedate a horse.

You may want to try the elaborately named Pi**ed off Japanese Minnow Farmer starring Smirnoff Red, Peach Schnapps, Amaretto, raspberry liqueur, Midori, lime, sugar and cranberry.

No, sorry. My mistake. Peach Schnapps, Smirnoff Red and Sugar are all the names of burlesque dancers. Or at least they should be.
