"Campfire cocktails in the city are back! Midnight Apothecary, the legendary botanical cocktail bar situated above Brunel’s underground Grand Entrance Hall in Rotherhithe, is officially opening for the Summer Season on Friday 5 May.
This year for the first time, Midnight Apothecary is launching a special Happy Hour offer on Fridays. Buy two botanical handmade cocktails and get the second half price, until 7pm.
Imbibe Midnight Apothecary’s exquisite seasonal foraged and garden cocktails such as the Woodland Martini, Lilac Days, the Cherry Blossom and the Chelsea Fringe Collins. All cocktails are infused and garnished with plants grown in the Brunel Museum’s rooftop garden or foraged nearby by founder Lottie Muir AKA The Cocktail Gardener. The menu changes regularly according to what’s in season. Top quality spirits and beer are sourced locally where possible including Jensen’s gin and Hiver honey beer, both from Bermondsey.
Relax around the campfire, toast some marshmallows and watch the sun set over the Thames.
