Available until March 3rd, The Clock Hotel have 3 colourful Mardi Gras cocktails to choose from. From left to right, Rupaul’s Martini, Sherbet Spritz, & Splice Up Your Life. Plus, $1 from every food and drink special sold until end of Mardi Gras will be donated to the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation, providing direct financial, practical & emotional support to those living with HIV.
