Launch event including a cocktail masterclass, free fizz for the first 100 guests and music from a live sax player and DJ.

Oxford’s favourite high-street bar will unveil its new look this month, as Slug & Lettuce brings a fresh dose of glitz and glamour to the city.

Within the grounds of the castle, the city’s go-to destination for a night on the tiles will boast deluxe décor full of bright and bold botanical prints, neon hues, plush velvet fabrics and flashes of gold throughout. Dark timbers will complement art deco-inspired fixtures, whilst festoon lighting will create a dramatic aesthetic and warm illumination across the entire bar.

Bookable birdcage booths decorated with cherry blossom will provide a VIP experience for lunches, dinners or drinks with the girls, whilst the installation of neon signs and a selfie wall promise to make every night out ‘insta-glammable’ and make finding that all-important backdrop for an Instagram post easy. The bar’s private room will also have a face lift to become a great setting for private parties throughout the year.

The bar’s brand-new cocktail masterclass station will also provide picture-perfect moments, allowing customers to experience fully interactive cocktail-making classes that will get every girl’s night out off to a great start. From Pornstar and Espresso Martinis to Brambles and the classic Mojito, it will become the first choice for any celebration, be it hen-parties, birthdays or simple get-togethers.

Those that don’t want to make their own can sit in one of the stylish booths and enjoy the Slug & Lettuce’s famous cocktail menu, which includes Piña Coladas served in golden pineapples, refreshing spritzes, classic cocktail and signature Pornstar Martinis. Groups can also try one of Slug & Lettuce’s famous cocktail trees, filled with Cosmopolitans, Pimms, French Martinis and more, they are an absolute must for every night out.

Slug & Lettuce’s menu is home to a host of gorgeous dishes that include everything from Slow-Cooked Beef Bao Buns to a tempting Salmon Superfood Salad. Delicious open sandwiches are also a new addition, with Shredded Shawarma Chicken, Red Pepper and Creamy Houmous, or Crayfish and King Prawns available to choose from!

Vegetarians and vegans won’t be disappointed either, as there are now twelve fabulous options to choose from. Highlights include the Smoky Soya Sloppy Joe Tostada (vegan smoky bacon-flavoured crumb, Violife cheese, crispy onions, peppers and vegan mayo), the Moving Mountains Burger (B12 plant-based patty in a beetroot bun) and the clean-eating Chickpea and Kale Salad.

As the festive season approaches, the bar will also be taking Christmas bookings. A plethora of menus and packages will be on offer, ensuring there’s something for everyone.

Josh Stringer, General Manager at Slug & Lettuce Oxford, said:
“We are thrilled to be giving the people of Oxford their new-look Slug & Lettuce, which thanks to our combination of eye-catching, bold designs and fabulous food and drink, will make every visit one to remember. We can’t wait for everyone to see our stylish new look for themselves!”

To celebrate the grand opening, Slug & Lettuce will be hosting a VIP Launch night from 5pm on Friday, 15th November from 5pm, where the first 100 guests to RSVP will be treated with a glass of fizz on arrival and canapes, plus live entertainment throughout the evening.
