Perfect timing! Just as we are promised sunshine, a great new outdoor bar pops up. Thank you Tate Modern for so many things that enhance London life, not least this latest commission: a sustainable out door pop up bar, designed by Something & Son, inspired by by baroque and Art Nouveau architectural styles, and built using 3-D printing. Not only that: the Tate has also commissioned micro-distillery Sacred to produce a series of specially blended gins made using botanicals including cardamom, angelica and liquorice. As a result the gin tastes deliciously spiced. And if you need another excuse to visit it, the Botanical Bar surely has the best address in London. It is located in ‘Skirt of the Black Mouth’: a space on the south side of the Gallery that has been created by artists Heather and Ivan Morison. The bar is open Thursdays to Saturday, and if you go on a Thursday you’ll catch performances by DJs and musicians, including The Karminsky Experience Inc and Rory More. See you there!
