Floating bar? Yes please (Picture: Glass Room)A bar on the Thames has teamed up with Italian dry gin brand VII Hills to bring us the capital’s only floating Negroni bar in time for Negroni week (yep, it’s a thing – 24 to 30 June).
The event will take place at Glass Room, Bateaux London’s restaurant and bar on the Thames, to celebrate the centenary of Italy’s most famed aperitif.
The Glass Room x VII Hills Floating Negroni Bar will pop up for one month, kicking off on 24 June.
Apparently, it’ll be the most amazing on-the-water experience with 360-degree views of London’s landmarks, offering a Negroni in hand when you pre-book a lunch, afternoon tea or dinner experience – with dining experiences starting from £39 for an hour-and-a-half.
VII Hills’ brand ambassador Gabriele Manfredi has created four VII Hills Negronis exclusively for Glass Room, perfect for sipping on a sunset sail down the Thames.
There’s the £8 Bateaux Signature Barrel-Aged Negroni made with VII Hills, Martini Riserva Speciale Rubino and Campari.
This sounds amazing! (Picture: Glass Room)The Fiori De Pesco, £10, is a peachy concoction made with VII Hills, peach liqueur, Martini Riserva Speciale Rubino and Campari while the Negroni All’arancia, also £10, is a mix of VII Hills, Martini Bianco, Campari and Cointreau.
Completing the list is the classic Negroni Italiano, made the traditional way with equal parts of VII Hills, Martini Rosso and Campari. It costs £9.
It’s the perfect event to head down to if you fancy getting tipsy on a boat on a nice summer’s day.
If you’re looking for another cocktail pop-up this summer, St Martins Lane Hotel in London will be transforming The Den and its outdoor terrace into a ‘tropical jungle oasis.’
It’ll be decorated with a mirrored entrance, palm trees, overflowing foliage and butterflies.
There will also be summery props so you can fill your Instagram feeds with influencer-like selfies.
Veuve Clicquot will be served by the glass and by the bottle, and there will also be ice cream and sorbet on offer. Yum.
