Summer wild cocktails are back!  We invite you to embrace the magic of 'Friluftsliv', the Nordic concept of open air living, with a centralised firepit in the Roof Garden, s'mores to devour (toasted marshmallows with chocolate and biscuits to the uninitiated) alongside our legendary botanical cocktails.  A perfect mates' night out or date for two.  

Voted one of London's best outdoor pop-up cocktail bars since we built the Roof Garden at the Brunel Museum in 2012, we specialise in lovingly prepared seasonal botanical cocktails round a campfire made by Midnight Apothecary founder Lottie Muir AKA the Cocktail Gardener. We infuse and garnish our drinks using ingredients grown in our rooftop garden or foraged close by, with the menu changing frequently based on what's growing in the garden. These are all served in our atmospheric setting right next to the Thames in the heart of Rotherhithe Village. We are the best kept secret around here being nestled on top of the Thames Tunnel Shaft which was itself built in the Victorian era by Marc Brunel. The garden is lovingly maintained and is adorned with giant flares, hurricane lamps and fairy lights. 

We source all our alcohol and sodas carefully using local brews and spirits where possible eg Bermondsey's Hiver Honey Beer, Anspach & Hobday, the Kernel Brewery and Jensen's gin as well as Hackney's Square Root Soda.  Our wine is vegan, as is Kernel Brewery beer, and we have plenty of non-alcoholic mocktails for you. All spirits are premium brands. Our menu will feature a range of cocktails to make your summer sizzle! Expect our take on the classic Mojito with house-made hibiscus and blackberry & mint syrup, alongside a limited run ('til the fennel runs out!) of Lottie's magnificent, jasmine-infused-gin Chelsea Fringe Collins, and our signature Midnight Margarita with activated charcoal, premium tequila and a lime foam. 

Choose between either the early sitting (5pm-7.15pm) or the late sitting (7.30pm-10pm). Roof Garden tickets are bought individually per guest and include an optional Guided Descent down into the Tunnel Shaft led by local legend & actor, Tim Thomas. Ticket money goes directly to registered charity the Brunel Museum. PLUS we are opening every Friday in July where those booked for the early session (5pm-7.15pm) will get 'Buy One, Get One Half Price' on cocktails.

Over Summer we will have a centralised firepit up in the Roof Garden (ie no individual pits to hire) with s'mores still available to purchase via the menu on the night - a great communal experience!

We welcome you to order in food of your choice to be delivered directly to you using Deliveroo/Just Eat or straight from the caterer.

Please note only drinks bought from Midnight Apothecary may be consumed on the premises. We are an outdoor venue so there is no rain cover but bring a brolly if it looks like light showers as we fully embrace the Friluftsliv!

Join us to watch the sun set surrounded by your friends, lovers and local wildlife. We look forward to welcoming you!
