Opera's back at The Hackney Empire this week and the Passa Parola bars are ready to share their hospitality with you! To celebrate Mozart's The Marrige of Figaro, we've sourced some local food and drink for you to enjoy. We've also brought back some old favourites specially for the occasion.
Cocktail of the week
The Bellini cocktail has long been associated with opera. The original Bellini, containing white peach puree and prosecco, was created at Harry's Bar in Venice in the 1930s. Come and enjoy a Passa Parola Bellini at one of our bars for the discounted price of £6.50.
