Kick off the Valentine’s weekend on Thursday with your best or worst Valentines story in our confessional booth. Remember the days of ‘To the pretty Belgium girl I danced with last night, I don’t remember your name but’, now its pay back time!
Once you have cleared your system there are plenty of other fish in the sea…. and in our cocktail! Share a fishbowl cocktail and spin cupids arrow, maybe you’ll get lucky and move on to cloud seven!?

So, what’s cooking good lookin’? Valentine’s Weekend at Generator is definitely an escape, a pamper session and a new adventure you can experience all by yourself or with all the single ladies!
February 9th Tequila Bandera Party
Who remembers the Alabama Slammer, the Singapore Sling, The Dingalingding? Instead of being the last barman’s poet, we serve the real deal – Tequila in many forms and shapes.
In some regions in Mexico tequila is drunk with a side of sangrita (a sweet, sour and spicy drink typically made from orange juice, grenadine or tomato juice, and hot chillies). Or another popular Mexican choice is the ‘bandera’ (not the sombrero in this case). Representing and named after the flag of Mexico, it consists of three shot glasses. Lime juice for the green, tequila for the white, and sangrita for the red. The bandera is best sipped or as a straight shot….salud!
Tequila being the treasure and jinx of many nights, come and join us for a night of ‘Sunrise, Slammer’ and more mexiermental tequila experiences like the ‘Submarine and the Furnance’ in the bar! From 10 pm until early hours….
