Vive le Tour!

The streets of London came to life with a visit from the Tour de France!

Monday 7th July saw Aubaine, and pretty much the whole of London, welcome the incredible sporting spectacle of the Tour de France to our streets. Excitement built up over the weekend with the Tour setting off from Leeds on Saturday and descending southwards towards the Big Smoke.

With the tour coinciding with the weekend, what better way to celebrate than a special cocktail? Our ‘Yellow Bicycle’ cocktail was available as a limited addition across all our restaurants for the weekend (but I’m sure if you ask very nicely the bartenders will still make you one)!

As you may know, we also ran a competition to win a bottle of champagne at Aubaine by answering the following question:

What year did French rider Jean Robic win the Tour de France after carrying a water bottle filled with lead to increase his downhill pace?

We can now reveal the answer was 1947!

Thank you all for taking the time to enter - we look forward to welcoming the winner at Aubaine very soon.

What bloggers say about us
The food, wine and service were utterly faultless and as for the interior… I want my whole house to look like that! While you won’t find Aubaine everywhere (it’s not Pizza Express people) there are a fair few all over London. So next time you’re in town, I’d highly recommend getting yourself to the nearest one… and ordering the Sea Bass.
