The Adams family are definitely in favour of a good tipple, as proud owners of the Trickling Tap in Market Place, Grantham, and their brand new speakeasy cocktail bar and lounge, The Tap & Tonic.

Founded in April 2013 by directors Paul and Karen Adams and their son, Luke, The Trickling Tap, an independent drinks retailer and liquid deli, has become a go to destination for those to quench their thirst.

As for their latest venture, The Tap & Tonic, the people of Grantham now have a place to experience the Prohibition era, with the speakeasy reminiscent of those bars opened during the 1930s.

“We are not trying to be just another bar,” said Paul. “We are trying to create an environment where people can enjoy some culture, relaxation and peaceful surroundings.”

Since opening in November, the cocktail bar has received a lot of praise and both Paul and Karen, along with Luke, have been putting their all into making it even more of a success.

This February, the bar is hosting its very own gin tasting evening, with the chance to taste six different gins from countries around the world. Tickets are £20 each and can be purchased in store for the evening of February 18. Customers can also enjoy an evening of live swing music with Campbell Bass as part of Valentine’s weekend on February 12.
