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.
    Autumnal wild cocktails, campfires and culture are back!  We invite you to dust off your winter woollens and join us to embrace the magic of ‘Friluftsliv’, the Nordic concept of open air living.
    There will be individual firepits to hire, s’mores to devour (toasted marshmallows with chocolate and biscuits to the uninitiated) alongside our legendary deluxe hot rum (or whisky) toddies to keep you extra toasty.  And all at a safe social distance. A perfect mates’ night out or date for two.
    Our site is divided into two spaces- the candlelit cocktail garden and the Piazza- an atmospheric terrace tucked alongside the Brunel Museum amongst Rotherhithe’s cobbled streets. We have table service (with an ordering app), one-way signage, plenty of hand sanitiser everywhere and social distancing measures in place to keep everyone safe.

    Tickets for a 2-hour session in the cocktail garden cost £7 and proceeds go to the Brunel Museum, tickets include a socially-distanced guided tour of Brunel’s Thames Tunnel Shaft, deep below our feet. Tickets for the terrace 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.

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

  • 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.
