MIRACLE ON GREY STREET
There’s a Christmas Miracle on Grey Street and it’s the place to be to get you in the festive spirit this year! A grotto for grown-ups has opened on Grey Street, serving everything from mulled wine to naughty and nice cocktails in the run up to Christmas. The former Living Room site has been transformed into Miracle on Grey Street; a winter wonderland-themed festive pop-up bar, which can be exclusively hired for parties of up to 120 people.
