‘Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrive!’ is the cry traditionally heard from bars and bistros when Beaujolais is finally released.
Come and join in the fun on Thursday November 21st from 10am when Le Garrick will be celebrating the new season’s Beaujolais Nouveau – that much-ballyhooed fruity and fresh vintage. This year the Beaujolais will be Glou-Glou, which literally translates as “glug-glug”.
Traditionally, the release cannot happen before 12.01am on the third Thursday of November, and although celebrations originate in Paris, London has welcomed this tradition, evident at Le Garrick where a huge party is always in full swing on this special day.
Le Garrick will be open for breakfast / brunch from 10am – midday and lunch from midday to 5pm.

The Gamay grapes that go into Beaujolais Nouveau are handpicked in the Beaujolais province of France. The wine actually originated about a century ago as a cheap and cheerful drink produced by locals to celebrate the end of the harvest season.
