Guests at OXO2 ventured through The Garden Gate this Summer, for an otherworldly experience on the Southbank.
With tantalising summer street food menus, Pick Your Own cocktails, stunning views and chill out DJ sets, pop-up bar The Garden Gate brought the outside in this year. There was just one condition… guests needed a gnome!
To show our appreciation for our diminutive companions we treated each gnome-toting guest to a free drink, and a smaller version for their pocket-sized pal. It’s only fair.
Create Food & Party Design provided a sumptuous summer menu of innovative dishes such as Dr Pepper ribs, The Posh Fishwich and Gin & Tonic Onion Rings – all served in flower pots and seed trays for the true outdoor experience.
LiquidChefs continued the garden theme on the bar, with a cocktail list of fruit and vegetable based creations. Guests could even book a ‘Make your own Cocktail’ lesson, share a watering can of their favourite tipple or take advantage of a daily PYO cocktail hour!
Guests then unleashed their competitive streaks with table tennis, Jenga and and coits available during the day, before relaxing to the tunes of DJ Skramble’s chill out sets.
The Garden Gate’s kitsch secret garden decor, sumptuous food and tempting cocktails successfully brought The Great British Summer indoors this year, for guests to enjoy come rain or shine. We hope the gnomes enjoyed it as much as our guests did, they’ve been a little quiet…
If you missed The Garden Gate this year don’t fear! The pop-up will be back next Summer. We’ll keep you posted…
