This Leeds cocktail bar is hosting a rum and chocolate pairing event

The Watermark is transforming itself into a rum and chocolate heaven, hosted by Diplomatico Rum & Chocolate.

From the people that brought us pyjama parties, bar blanket forts, 4am charcuterie boards and tales of lost Crocs that deserve their own Cinderella story.

The Watermark bar is back with another exciting event- and this time it’s all about chocolate.

If you ever needed a drool-worthy night that marries sophisticated alcohol pairing with belly laughs and food aplenty, this is it.

On Thursday 12 May 2022, The Watermark is transforming itself into a rum and chocolate heaven, hosted by Diplomatico Rum & Chocolate- the creators of a sipping rum that is made almost entirely from sugar cane honey.

The rum itself is blended from 80% pot still rum and 20% light rums aged for up to 12 years- so it’s well worth getting down to Cross Belgrave Street for this one if you know a thing or two about spirits.

Diplomatico’s Rum Ambassador, Dean MacGregor will guide guests through each neat expression and which chocolate it is paired with. Costing £35 per person, each ticket entitles guests to four expressions perfectly paired with four chocolates, served on a board with other nibbles.

If that’s not enough, Diplomatico cocktails will be served all night long as a palette refresher between courses (or sips) of the rum and choccy offerings.

If you can’t make it down to the one-night-only affair, The Watermark is a regular cocktail bar that serves up an incredible selection of spirits, charcuterie and cocktails- if anyone knows how to pair flavours, it’s these guys.

The critically acclaimed bar regularly receives five star reviews, described as ‘consistently amazing’ by their regular customers for its service, food and drinks.

Inspired by the owner’s home bar in Beeston, the interior is cosily decorated throughout, complete with classic board games and quirky wall features.
