John Lewis' 2017 Rooftop Bar The Gardening Society above its Oxford Street Store


John Lewis' rooftop bar and testaurant space 'The Gardening Society' has re-opened above their Oxford Street Store, with its own pub - The Gardener's Arms - plus bookable summerhouses, and a rotating collection of chefs well known to fans of pop-ups, including Morty & Bob's (until 5th June), and Foley's.  It's open seven days a week, with late nights until 11pm on Thursdays to Saturdays.  Long may the sunshine continue!

"The space includes The Gardener's Arms, Britain's smallest pub, plus bookable Summerhouses, each with a bespoke summer scent and their very own private front garden with white picket fence. Each Summerhouse hosts a different theme, including one inspired by the culture and music of the 70’s, one with a nod to travel and motoring and one a creative artist’s workshop space. The largest house ‘The Pavilion’, will accommodate up to 10 guests and, come the evening, will be available to book for larger celebrations and gatherings.
Designed by acclaimed gardener Tony Wood, previously awarded RHS National Young Garden Designer of the Year, The Gardening Society is filled with plants and herbs sourced from every corner of the British Isles, including wild garlic and blackberry bushes, to encourage guests to feel at home whilst pottering around. The unique city centre green space is expected to attract wildlife with its bird wall, water feature and herb garden.
The Gardening Society rooftop will be the place to be in London this summer, as it plays host to 100 ‘Summer Series’ events including gardening masterclasses, wellbeing workshops, yoga, fitness and HIIT training. The rooftop events are part of a wider UK programme of 1,500 events which forms part of the national treasures campaign, heralding the largest and most interactive programme of event activity launched by John Lewis to date. From design workshops to tea parties, screen printing to hat making as well as barbecue masterclasses and beauty events there will be something for everyone.
The restaurant launches with East London eatery Morty & Bob’s, as they take up residency on the rooftop of Oxford Street for the first time. Serving an array of their favourite dishes, using British- sourced ingredients, the residency will run until the end of May. Two more exciting summer restaurant residencies will be announced two weeks prior to their launch."
