Following on from Uncle Barts Grand refurb, Barts will be in full bloom for this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, which will take place from 20th – 24th May 2014.
Located a stone’s throw from the world’s most famous flower show, Barts secret speakeasy bar is the ideal place for drinks after any visit to the exhibition. Talented bar manager Vincenzo Sibilia has created an exquisite cocktail in homage to the show, ‘The Chinese Lantern’, a heady blend of home-made Hibiscus flower and Rose jam infused Tanqueray Malacca, apple juice, lime juice, egg white and sugar syrup. The cocktail will then be served in the perfect summer garden accessory, a giant, glowing – that’s right, you guessed it- Chinese Lantern, filled with Violet Essence.
Barts is renowned for its fancy dress box and for the duration of the show the box will be themed along the lines of ‘Blooming Marvelous’. Guests will be able to indulge their love of ‘Flower Power’ by delving into the box of delights and find anything from ultimate hippy flares to wings and flowers worn by flower fairies.
Just in the time for the Chelsea show, Barts will also be re-opening its very own Cuban garden where guests can sip their drinks surrounded by lush foliage and exotic plants.
Barts was opened five years ago and is London’s first 'speakeasy' style bar located on the prestigious Sloane Avenue. It is the brainchild of Duncan Stirling and Charlie Gilkes, the dynamic duo that own the Inception Group that also comprises of the highly successful 80’s themed nightclub, Maggie’s and an Englishman's Italian, Bar, Pizzeria and Karaoke, Bunga Bunga in Battersea. This summer they will also be launching Mr Fogg’s in Mayfair, a recreation of the actual home of Jules Verne’s most famous adventurer, Phileas Fogg, as well as a Disco, an underground boîte in Soho, inspired by the disco movement, which started in 1970s Manhattan. This summer they will launch Cocobananas, a nightclub based on a Brazilian beach party and Beaver Lodge, a cabin bar and dance saloon based on the winter cowboy log cabins found in Wyoming.
Barts will be the pick of the bunch for this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.
