An Evening Inspired by Studio Ghibli - The 5th Instalment

The 5th instalment of the longstanding event by The Vanguard Cocktail Bar & Meadery will be hosted in collaboration with the Electric Cinema. Enjoy Howl's Moving Castle with sake, cocktails and interesting Japanese flavours with 5 Ghibli-inspired drinks from the team of The Vanguard.

In this Japanese animated epic, Howl is the crotchety wizard who lives in a castle that not only stands on chicken legs - it can also grow and shrink in size. When Howl sees young hat-maker Sophie being persecuted by soldiers, he intervenes and saves her - but this makes the Witch of the Waste jealous, so she turns Sophie into an old crone. We follow Sophie's story as she struggles to make her way to the castle to get her curse reversed - while at the same time, the country begins preparing for a war. A fantastic and imaginative treat from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki.
