Update - It's back for Winter 2016 - Full details here
John Lewis has opened up a roof garden on top of its Oxford Street store for summer 2016. Open until September 4th, it's called The Gardening Society, and features a rotating set of pop-ups restaurants - including The Dairy from Clapham in June, B.O.B.'s Lobster in July. Plus there are bars, views and it's a nice place to chill out on a summer's afternoon or evening.
"The rooftop of John Lewis Oxford Street has been transformed into an arena of blooms and fresh herbs, hosting pop-up restaurants in collaboration with Night Tales, a coffee shop, activities such as yoga and a vibrant garden where you can relax and take time out.
Designed by renowned gardener Tony Woods – previously awarded RHS National Young Garden Designer of the Year – the rooftop garden will make home to the pop-up restaurant, adjoining bar and ‘award winning’ blooms and vegetables.
Adapting to reflect each restaurant, cocktails curated by Background Bars will incorporate herbs grown and freshly picked each day from The Gardening Society’s garden. Throughout June, seasonal takes on classic British tipples will include Sunday Tonic, a ginger infused gin, rhubarb, homemade tonic bitters and Fentiman’s tonic. Rose Spritz comprises Belsazar Rosé, hand-picked garden herbs, fresh berries, grapefruit and Fentiman’s and the British Garden Julep blends gin, garden pea syrup, lemon juice, freshly picked mint and ginger ale."
