Botanical cocktails at Brunel Museum’s Midnight Apothecary

Cocktails are served around the campfire at the Midnight Apothecary

Last Saturday Tribe headed south of the river for an evening of floral wilderness, souvlaki, garden-themed cocktails – and an unexpected history lesson!

Our foodie friends had invited us to Brunel Museum’s summer event series Midnight Apothecary, which is back for the third year running and is a real London insider find.

For only £5.00, visitors get access to the Thames Tunnel Shaft’s beautiful rooftop garden as well as a guided tour into the vast underground chamber that used to be the entrance to the subterranean system but is now used as a theatre and music venue.

As well as lovingly crafted botanical cocktails, infused with herbs and flowers grown by ‘Cocktail Gardener’ Lottie Muir, guests are invited to roast marshmallows over a campfire after the sun sets. And for those in need of sustenance, Greek grill I Should Be Souvlaki provides tasty pita bread stuffed with marinated grilled chicken, pork or halloumi and all the trimmings.

The Midnight Apothecary is open every Saturday until the end of September

With a Chelsea Fringe Collins in one hand and the beats of the live band in our ear, we found it hard to think of a better place to enjoy a chilled Saturday evening in the city.

The Midnight Apothecary runs until September 27th. Find out more about Brunel Museum or buy tickets here.
