The BBC Proms is currently running until Saturday the 9th of September and the eight-week event is an annual highlight in the British summer calendar. The daily classical concerts are hosted at the famed Royal Albert Hall, Kensington.

The Ivy Kensington Brasserie is conveniently located on Kensington High Street – a short walk from the Royal Albert Hall – and provides the perfect setting for those looking for a spot of preproms dining.

In celebration of this year’s Proms, The Ivy Kensington Brasserie has partnered with luxury leather goods brand, Aspinal of London, to create the ultimate ‘Best-of-British’ experience. From Monday, 17 July, for eight weeks only, guests will be invited to while away the time whilst enjoying an exclusive package, featuring a selection of dishes from the restaurant’s set menu and a refreshing summer cocktail – poured directly at the table from a limited edition Union Jack patterned hipflask. Created by Aspinal of London, each hipflask features a bespoke Ivy leaf engraving and has been created especially for the restaurant.
