Threadneedle Bar launches cocktails inspired by Theo Fennell jewellery
Not ready to let go of the sparkle of Christmas, the team at Threadneedle Bar has announced a New Year collaboration with Theo Fennell to celebrate Theo Fennell’s latest jewellery creations. Bar manager Sebastian Kasyna has created three bespoke cocktails drawing on these beautiful pieces of jewellery and the glamourous surroundings of The Royal Exchange for inspiration.
