From viking hideaway through to Peter Pan's lair, Queen of Hoxton never misses a beat when it comes to a theme for its rooftop hangout. Winter 2017 is set to be no different as the Shoreditch pub looks to warmer climates for the sky-high space. Inspired by Morocco and the famous Jardin Majorelle (AKA Yves Saint Laurent Garden), the rooftop will be transformed into a medina come October. With patterned cushions, rugs, throws and lots of candlelight, their winter wigwam will channel Marrakesh, as will the selection of food and drink.
Avoid the cold by slurping on a refreshed cocktail list which includes the likes of spiced hot buttered rum, sweet cardamon spiced coffee, and gold pomegranate Bellini. Food looks just as delicious with a menu full of Moroccan treats, from halloumi fries and lamb tagine through to a vegan mezze sharing board. As well as being open for a drink or nibble, the rooftop will also curate a series of events in partnership with Arts Canteen, a London-based collective which aims to create artistic links between the Middle East and Europe, and Saqi Books, an independent publisher which focuses on books from North Africa.
The Moroccan Medina is open at Queen of Hoxton, 1-5 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 3JX, from 26th October 2017.
