Our Rioja Deal…

So…as those of you in the know will know, we run an excellent offer in the restaurant called the Rioja Deal free online project management tools. ¡Over the years we’ve advertised the deal in many different ways, but, most recently, we’ve been handing it out on small black membership style cards, however, these cards have an expiry date of the 30th of June- which is this Thursday! ¡Excitingly, we’ve been working closely with a company to create an app for Tapa- which will allow us to offer you up to date deals that are catered more specifically to you- but, as with anything like this, what we thought would take a few weeks to bang out of the park has taken much, much longer! Hopefully, we should have a shiny new app to show off very soon, but, until the app is ready, we thought we’d extend the validity of the Rioja Deal to Thursday 29th of September 2016. ¡¿If you’re new to Tapa, or, you’ve maybe just forgotten all about the Rioja Deal- you may be asking  at this point what is the awesome offer they speak so fondly of?! ¡Well…it’s very simple! It’s your choice of a Bottle of Red or White Rioja and Four Tapas from the Menu for just £30.  ¡Available to be redeemed from Sunday to Thursday, all you have to do to utilise the deal is make a reservation and state your intention to use it! ¡It’s any four dishes from the menu (excluding both the Ceviche and Brochetas dishes from our Fish part of the Menu and Daily Specials) and, what’s brilliant about it,...

A wee bit about our Spanish Gin Selection…

In case you didn’t know, Gin is absolutely HUGE at the moment- apparently a new Gin distillery opens every week in the UK- but nowhere is this more apparent than in Spain which has become the largest consumer of Gin (per head of the capita) in the world! However, there is one massive difference to how Gin is drunk in Spain to the UK and that’s the GLASS! The AWESOME Copa de Balon is a large balloon shaped stem glass that originated from El Bulli (of course!) where their Chef’s would drink their G&T’s in a Bordeaux wine glasses full of ice- to keep it chilled- whilst they cleaned the kitchen down after service, and, once customers caught onto it, it quickly became the only way to drink a G& T! We, of course, had to have some & have imported a load specially from Spain for the restaurant, but, then we thought, we’ve gone to so much effort getting the right glass wear in, why aren’t we serving any Spanish Gin in them?! All the Gin we serve in Tapa, then, is Spanish and we’ve worked closely with all the different producers to- not only-individually garnish each Gin to give it it’s own character, but, also to find it’s perfect complimentary tonic – as, after all, most of your G& T is T! So next time your in Tapa if you really want to make us smile, order a G & T, after all the work we’ve put in to create our Gin Selection, we couldn’t be happier to make you one! Love, The Tapa...
