Campfire Cocktails in the city are back! Join us for our seventh season of wild cocktails, campfire, culture and cuisine at the Brunel Museum. A perfect mates' night out or date for two. We specialise in lovingly prepared seasonal botanical cocktails served around a firepit using ingredients grown in our rooftop garden or foraged close by. We source all our alcohol carefully using local brews and spirits where possible eg Bermondsey's Hiver Honey Beer and Jensen's gin. We built the garden in 2012 as an oasis by the river where we invite you to cuddle up, toast marshmallows and watch the sun set surrounded by your friends, lovers and local wildlife. The menu changes frequently based on what's growing in the garden.
We are so excited to welcome an amazing streetfood vendor for our 2018 season. Farm Street Kitchen come from Sissinghurst in Kent and will be serving up delicious seasonal and locally sourced hot morsels including vegan options.
This season we have two sittings: 5.00pm - 7.30pm or 7.30pm - 10pm. This will provide more space for you and your guests and allow us to bathe you in even more glorious customer service. Entry includes admission to the roof garden and the Museum, optional guided descent into Brunel's cavernous underground Grand Entrance Hall beneath the garden, and complimentary toasted marshmallows. We will be doing 'buy one, get one half price' cocktails between 5pm - 7pm on Fridays. Those people waiting to enter the roof garden for cocktails or those people who have enjoyed the earlier sitting are welcome to remain at the venue on the lower terrace where we shall serve bottles of wine or beer.
Here's to a great season. See you round the campfire!
