ST VALENTINE’S NIGHT
SATURDAY 11TH FEBRUARY
How to deal with the cynical marketing shambles that is Valentine’s Day? Relax, it’s taken care of. Midnight Apothecary opens its broad church doors to the loved up, the hopeful, the curious, the cynical and the doubtful.
Inside the candlelit Engine House, live music of the torchsong variety (with an edge) from the wonderful Nathan Osgood Trio AND..quell your beating heart.. an optional descent into Brunel’s dark, underground love cave. In the magical candle lit garden, toast complimentary marshmallows, or find delicious sizzling fare down on the terrace. And very special seasonal potions that will be fresh and wild, just like you!

More about the Midnight Apothecary
Queen of artfully-designed, plant-powered cocktails……some of the most inspired cocktails in London“. Kara Rosen, Founder, Plenish Cleanse.
“Welcome to the hottest pop-up cocktail bar in town.” Pattie Barron, Evening Standard
“Midnight Apothecary….already a London institution.” Victoria Summerley, Editor, Independent on Sunday
“Being in a garden at midnight with campfire and bar has never been so magical.” Richard Reynolds, guerilla gardener, author and founder of guerillagardening.org
The creator of the garden is our favourite Cocktail Gardener, aka Lottie Muir. By day she is the gardener who transformed the garden above Brunel’s famous Thames Tunnel from scrubby wasteland into a magical potager garden teeming with vegetables and flowers. But on special Saturday nights she sheds her gardening gloves and dons her apron to become The Cocktail Gardener, wending her way from flowerbed to bar to rustle up gorgeous cocktails infused and garnished with ingredients from the garden or foraged locally for Midnight Apothecary.
Previous incarnations include woodland martinis, Rhubarbra Streisands, hedgerow sours and the Chelsea Fringe Collins. She only uses premium alcohol, where possible sourced locally, including the fantastic Old Tom gin from Jensen and Hiver Honey beer, both from Bermondsey.
