Get the beers in (and the rum, ciders, bourbon and more...)

Feeling thirsty? The London Tattoo Convention will have plenty of watering holes on site to keep everyone refreshed. We introduce 6 bars to relax and quench your thirst...

The Roadhouse Bar

Welcome to The Roadhouse, a nostalgic American road-trip. Here you will find the Gretsch-sponsored acoustic stage where the legendary John Fairhurst, John Crampton and Big Joe Bone will be performing throughout the weekend, cracking out a variety of blues-infused tunes!

Bulliet Whiskey will be showcasing their wares... come and have a drink or two with the team, who will be launching their latest tattoo-inspired billboard campaign. It's set to be a great road-trip!

Havana Bar

The Havana Bar is one of The London Tattoo Convention's main party zones - this year we will be absorbing the energy of the Cuban culture and people. 

Along with all of the regular bar favourites, we will be hosting The Havana Club Cocktail Bar and welcoming Rendle's Original Gin to the wine and fizz bar.

With in-house DJ's, we'll be keeping the party going well into the night!

Jamaica Inn

Always a popular destination offering a fine selection of cask conditioned real ales and ciders, chilled and hand-pump delivered. To complement these fine ales, we have created CRAFT BEER HEAVEN, by serving a selection of equally renowned crafties such as Fourpure, Mundo, Magic Rock, Kernal, Two Tribes, Wiper and True as well as the highly sought-after and award-winning Omnipollo beer, whose name is derived from the word 'Omnipotent'. Feel the force...

Beavertown Bar

This year, The London Tattoo Convention is excited to announce it's collaboration with the ever-popular Beavertown Brewery, a British craft beer company founded by Robert Plant's son Logan in 2011.

Since then they have gone from strength to strength producing a plethora of flavoursome beers, including Gamma Ray, a juicy tropical beer; Lupuloid, a 6.7% ABV India Pale Ale; the crisp, punchy Neck Oil, and other favourites on tap.

Henry's Quayside Bar

In conventions past, Henry's Bar on the ground floor has supplied beverages to thirsty visitors of the event. This year, we are welcoming Henry's back as a permanent fixture, following an extensive renovation of the premises. Yet again there'll be a wide selection of beers and spirits on offer, including the always-popular Amstel lager, Symond's Cider (the original makers of Scrumpy Jack, no less), both Maltsmiths lager (caramel base with notes of citrus and grapefruit) and IPA, as well as Guiness's old rival, Murphy's Stout. Cheers!

An amazing selection of bars to suit all tastes - stop off for a drink at The London Tattoo Convention this September 28-29-30th at Tobacco Dock. Tickets are now available online.
