[ Win tickets to new bar launch in SE1 ]

The team behind Mint on Montague have just opened a new
bar in Southwark. It's called the Southwark Rooms and
it's on the former site of the William Shakespeare pub
at 60 Southwark Street. The place has been transformed
from a bog standard boozer into a top cocktail venue. 

The launch party takes place on Thursday 9 October,
starting at 6pm. Southwark Rooms are offering five
pairs of tickets to the launch party for SE1 Direct
readers. Email feedback@se1direct.co.uk by 5pm today
(Monday), and the winners will be selected at random
from the entries received. Remember to write 'Southwark
Rooms' in the subject box and include your full name
and address. 

Southwark Rooms is also offering 100 complimentary Mai
Tai cocktail vouchers to readers of this newsletter.
Simply print out this email, take it down to Southwark
Rooms, 60 Southwark Street and tell the bar staff
you're claiming your free Mai Tai voucher. First come
first served.

NB: cocktail voucher requires a name and email address.
Vouchers are redeemable from 6pm onwards,
Monday-Thursday only. Offer expires 1 March 2004. No
cash alternative. Strictly one cocktail per person, per
