Virgin Atlantic and its joint venture partner (and 49% shareholder) Delta have opened their pop-up pub.
I was down there last night for a couple of drinks to take a peek.
“The Joint Venture” is at 33 New Oxford Street and has taken over “The Old Crown” for the next 10 days. (New Oxford Street is not Oxford Street, it is to the east of Tottenham Court Road.)
If you’re interested in craft beer then this is definitely one for you, as the pub is selling 230 different brands – one from each of the 230 cities which Delta and Virgin fly to in the US.
It is open to the public from lunchtime today until Sunday 19th. There are various events planned throughout the week including quiz nights – details are on the Virgin Atlantic website here.
