Midnight Apothecary’s third summer season ends September 27th but don’t worry there will be magical nights each month through the winter in our wild cocktail bar. Saturday October 25th for early Hallowe’en and Saturday November 1st for Bonfire Night. Scroll down for more information.
Listed this year as one of the 24 best places to drink outside in London this summer by To Do List, we have some exciting developments at Midnight Apothecary. Lovers of wild cocktails, campfires, flowers, riverside sunsets and Greek Souvlaki (yes, really)– you may have found nirvana. Our Cocktail Gardener been busy infusing, distilling and generally cooking up a storm of brand new cocktail creations based on ingredients in our garden and out in the wild (we cannot wait for you to try them).
This season we are also delighted to introduce mouthwatering hot delights in the form of I Should Be Souvlaki – two handsome men and their Great Greek Grill. Best friends Tom and Chris will be dishing up delicious authentic Greek pita souvlaki fresh off the grill every Saturday night. Stop by the stall for fluffy bread filled with marinated grilled chicken, pork or halloumi oozing with the scent of garlic, lemon oregano and mint, with chips, tomato, red onion and tzatziki. The perfect accompaniment to our cocktails!
When & Where
Midnight Apothecary is open throughout the summer at Brunel Museum every Saturday night 5.30pm – 10.30pm.
Entry this season is £5 by advance ticket only. Tickets will include entry to the museum, complimentary toasted marshmallows, optional guided descent into the underground chamber….and the usual giant flares, hurricane lamps. Money raised from ticket sales will also help raise money for a new entrance and staircase for a new concert hall in Brunel’s huge underground shaft below the cocktail garden and avoid overcrowding in the garden.
More about the Midnight Apothecary
“Cocktail parties with a difference in the roof gardens above the Thames Tunnel.”
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 for Midnight Apothecary.
Previous incarnations include woodland martinis, Rhubarbra Streisands, hedgerow sours and the Chelsea Fringe Collins. We also stock a range of London-brewed bottled beers.
