Midnight Apothecary

Midnight Apothecary is the only place for campfire cocktails in the city!

  • Midnight Apothecary – Campfire Cocktails in the City!

    Campfire Cocktails in the City! Voted one of London’s best pop-up cocktail bars since 2012 and featured in Vogue, World’s Best Bars, the Independent on Sunday, Red, Elle and Time Out.

    We have been working hard behind the scenes to adapt our unique cocktail garden to keep our guests and staff safe during this time, whilst maintaining the magical atmosphere that you love. As a result we are now open for strictly limited numbers from Thursday-Sunday. Booking is essential so follow the link to get your tickets!

    Our site will be divided into two spaces- the cocktail garden, with limited numbers of 30 people, and the Piazza- a sun-dappled terrace tucked alongside the Brunel Museum amongst Rotherhithe’s cobbled streets. Delicious food will be available courtesy of our friends at The Mayflower.

    The Piazza will be open Thursday – Sunday, and a 2-hour slot must be pre-booked. Tickets are free of charge and you will be able to purchase our award-winning cocktails or a locally-brewed beer, which will be delivered to your table.

    Friday & Saturday nights will feel like summers gone by, as we offer wild cocktails and more in the cocktail garden, with a socially-distanced guided tour of Brunel’s Thames Tunnel Shaft, deep below our feet. Tickets for a 2-hour session cost £7 and proceeds go to the Brunel Museum.

    Alternatively, if your ideal Sunday afternoon would be spent in a hidden urban wilderness with a drink in your hand, then book a free 2-hour slot on a Sunday, where we will be offering cocktails, mocktails, wine and beer in our beautiful garden.

    PLUS… We will be offering ‘buy one, get one half price’ on cocktails  between 5pm – 7pm every Friday!

    We will have table service (with a table ordering app), one-way signage, plenty of hand sanitiser everywhere and everything in place to welcome you back and keep you safe.

  • Private Hire

    PRIVATE BOOKINGS ALSO AVAILABLE

    Our secret rooftop garden is situated above Brunel’s underground entrance to the Thames Tunnel, one of the city’s engineering masterpieces, hailed in Victorian times as ‘the eighth wonder of the world’. We are known for our wild cocktails using ingredients grown in the garden or foraged close by and pride ourselves on using premium local alcohol distilled or brewed in Bermondsey such as Jensen’s gin, Hiver Honey Beer, Anspach & Hobday and the Kernel Brewery. Our non-alcoholic sodas hail from award-winning local Square Root Soda.  Lottie Muir aka The Cocktail Gardener transformed this neglected space in 2012 into an edible oasis in the heart of Rotherhithe village by the Thames.

    Why not book the whole garden exclusively for you and up to 30 guests on a Sunday afternoon? Contact us for more information: lottie@themidnightapothecary.co.uk

    For more information please drop us an email or call: 07917 548475

  • The creator!

    The creator of the garden is our favourite Cocktail Gardener, aka Lottie Muir. By day she is the gardener who transformed the garden above Brunel’s famous Thames Tunnel from scrubby wasteland into a magical potager garden teeming with vegetables and flowers. But on special Friday & Saturday nights she sheds her gardening gloves and dons her apron to become The Cocktail Gardener, wending her way from flowerbed to bar to rustle up gorgeous cocktails infused and garnished with ingredients from the garden or foraged locally for Midnight Apothecary. 

    The Book: Wild Cocktails from the Midnight Apothecary by LOTTIE MUIR is published by CICO and is available from all good bookshops at £16.99 and at Amazon. Signed copies will be available at Midnight Apothecary.
