It may have slipped your attention (you know, if you’ve been living under a rock) but the royal wedding is on this weekend. Protest all you want, but we know you’re excited for it. You and us both.
And rather than sitting at home watching from your couch in your trackies, bottle of wine in one hand, take-out in the other and wondering why on earth you weren’t invited—you can watch in style.
The peeps over at Market Lane Bar at The Intercontinental are showing all the important moments on the big screen—Markle’s big dress reveal, the first (wedded) kiss, who scored an invite and who missed out, and which distant relative gets a little too excited about the open bar (okay, no guarantees about this one).
Plus, there’ll be a whole bunch of royally-themed cocktails to drown your sorrows that yet another prince is off the market. There’s the Markle Royale (a tasty mix of champagne, St Germain and citrus that’s just a little bit fancy), or the Ginger Chopper, which brings a modern twist to the classic dark and stormy rum, with fresh ginger and citrus (wonder who that one’s based on).
If neither of those are quite your type, there’s also the Queen’s Night Cap, a tantalising mix of sloe gin, Grand Marnier, chamomile tea and cranberry juice. Uh, yum.
So say ‘I do’ to this event and get yourself down to Market Lane Bar to catch the biggest TV event of the year (after the Bachelor In Paradise finale, of course).

In other (much sadder) news, Bimbo Deluxe was gutted by a fire. No word yet on when it'll re-open.
