One of the undisputed highlights of the summer season to date has been the terrace film nights every Wednesday. Lovingly curated, raw, outdoor cinema; be it a series of shorts from the likes of London Short Film Festival, Future Shorts & Mono or features from The Great Beauty to Pulp Fiction in collaboration with yPlan. There’s something truly magical about taking in the big screen experience on the terrace. That’s why for the remainder of our residency we’re doubling up on celluloid; our film nights will be extending to Mondays as well as their regular spot on Wednesday. Expect classic films, short showreels and the odd curveball; all put together with our own inimitable style with food and drink offerings to match.
Bar opens at 5pm, £1 Oyster Happy Hour and 20% off cocktails runs 6-7pm, screenings start as the sun sets, bar closes at midnight.
Here’s what’s on for the remainder of the month:

Wednesday, August 26th: 20,000 Days on Earth
Step into Nick Cave’s universe: a day in the life of the Bad Seeds frontman, writer, composer and punk poet. What drives the creative process? What makes the artist tick? This lucid account that blurs the lines between reality and fantasy serves as a meta-introspective in which the subject turns and twists the camera on himself.
