Update - it's back, for 2014, from 1st - 17th August
For just over one week the 2nd floor of The Oxo Tower is hosting The Garden Gate, a pop-up bar with food, drinks, and garden games - open from 11.30am - 11.30pm.
"This summer sees Southbank events space OXO2 transformed into pop-up bar The Garden Gate. From 14th – 23rd August The Garden Gate will be serving a fun casual dining menu by Concerto owned Create Food & Party Design alongside cocktails by Liquid Chefs. Open from 11.30am – 11.30pm with food available from 12 noon to 10pm daily.
Theming will bring the outdoors in, with kitsch secret garden decor creating the atmosphere of suburbia in the heart of the capital. Guests who bring a garden gnome will receive a free drink (and one for their diminutive companion!)
An innovative grazing menu dreamt up by top London caterer Create Food and Party Design includes the Posh Fishwich – a take on the traditional fish finger sandwich using truffled breadcrumbs and haddock in a tomato and rosemary focaccia with fresh watercress and lemon mayo, as well as tender slow roasted ribs, flame grilled burgers and a lemon and elderflower posset with sweet pickled raspberries all served in flower pots and seed trays.
Cocktails are to be provided by mixologists LiquidChefs, who have devised a garden themed cocktail list of fruit and vegetable based drinks, including the Raspberry & Thyme Cooler and Kiwi & Cucumber Martini. Watering cans of cocktails are available for guests to share. In addition LiquidChefs are to offer ‘Make your own Cocktail’ lessons for groups of up to 8 people.
Entertainment will also be provided, with table tennis, Jenga and coits available during the day, and chill out DJ sets on Friday and Saturday evenings as well as Sunday afternoons."
