Everyone loves a Garden Party and especially one that isn’t weather dependent. With the remains of hurricane Bertha raging across the capital, frequent downpours are ruining our summer fun, meaning the only type of event we can rely on is one that’s indoors.
The genius team behind Barts on Sloane Avenue, along with Hendricks Gin has bought us their Enchanted Garden Party, within the four safe walls of their swanky, speakeasy bar. Expect afternoon tea delights, fairy wings and an abundance of Gin.
This Thursday 14th August guests will enter the secret garden, dressed with Ivy and lit with twinkling fairy lights and will be able to enjoy complimentary cupcakes, sandwiches and glorious Victoria sponge, followed by a special HENDRICK’S Gin Tea Tasting. There’ll be a TInkerbell toe-tapping soundtrack played by a heavenly harmonic Harpist and as always the dressing-up-box will also play a part, with an abundance of fairy wings flying around for guests to capture and add to their costumes.
Barts was opened five years ago and was London’s first ‘speakeasy’ style bar located on the prestigious Sloane Avenue. It is the brainchild of Duncan Stirling and Charlie Gilkes, the dynamic duo that own the Inception Group that also comprises of the highly successful 80’s themed nightclub, Maggie’s and an Englishman’s Italian, Bar, Pizzeria and Karaoke, Bunga Bunga in Battersea. This summer they will also be launching Mr Fogg’s in Mayfair, a recreation of the actual home of Jules Verne’s most famous adventurer, Phileas Fogg, as well as a Disco, an underground boîte in Soho, inspired by the disco movement, which started in 1970s Manhattan. They have recently launched Cocobananas, a nightclub based on a Brazilian beach party and will launch Beaver Lodge, a cabin bar and dance saloon based on the winter cowboy log cabins found in Wyoming this autumn.
