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 BarronEvening 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 Gardeneraka 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.
