Midnight Apothecary

Midnight Apothecary is the only place for campfire cocktails in the city!

  • Midnight Apothecary

    Campfire Cocktails in the city are back!  Join us for our seventh season of cocktails, campfire, culture and cuisine at the Brunel Museum. A perfect mates’ night out or date for two.  We specialise in lovingly prepared seasonal botanical cocktails served around a firepit using ingredients grown in our rooftop garden or foraged close by. We source all our alcohol carefully using local brews and spirits where possible eg Bermondsey’s Hiver Honey Beer and Jensen’s gin.  We built the garden in 2012 as an oasis by the river where we invite you to cuddle up, toast marshmallows and watch the sun set surrounded by your friends, lovers and local wildlife.  The menu changes frequently based on what’s growing in the garden.

  • Come and see us early or late...

    This season we have two sittings: 5.00pm – 7.30pm or 7.30pm – 10pm.  This will provide more space for you and your guests and allow us to bathe you in even more glorious customer service. Entry includes entry to the roof garden and the Museum, optional guided descent into Brunel’s cavernous underground Grand Entrance Hall beneath the garden, and complimentary toasted marshmallows. Those people waiting to enter the roof garden for cocktails or those people who have enjoyed the earlier sitting are welcome to remain at the venue on the lower terrace where we shall serve bottles of wine or beer. Tickets available here

    Here’s to a great season. See you round the campfire!

  • Food at the Midnight Apothecary

  • Campfire Cocktails in the City!

    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

  • The creator!

    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 Friday & 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. 

    The Book: Wild Cocktails from the Midnight Apothecary by LOTTIE MUIR is published by CICO and is available from all good bookshops at £16.99 and at Amazon. Signed copies will be available at Midnight Apothecary.
