The Garden Gate Pop-Up, OXO2

OXO2 have launched a brand new pop-up bar today, on the second floor of OXO Tower Wharf. It’s called The Garden Gate, because it’s full of grass and flowers and deck chairs and gnomes. Plenty of gnomes. One is called Norman. Look out for him, he’s a star.

The menu is, of course, garden themed too. Plenty of dishes are served up in flower pots and seed trays. It’s basically a posher version of summer street food, with gourmet burgers, Dr Pepper ribs and a Posh Fishwich on the menu. Nachos too, don’t forget the nachos. Here’s the full menu.

Cocktails are being supplied by mixologists LiquidChefs, who travel about the place setting up lighting up bars and serving up some of the best cocktails in the WORLD*. I can highly recommend the Pomegranate Mojito, it’s a thing of beauty.

But the best bit is… if you bring a gnome you get not one but two free drinks. One for you, one little version for your gnome. Norman’s after some playmates, it seems.

The Garden Gate is open until 23rd August. There’s also table tennis, coits and plenty more garden themed fun. And a DJ playing some chill out sets to help you unwind, if the cocktails don’t do the trick!

*Possibly a slight exaggeration. They’re good though.
