This summer Worship Street Whistling Shop plays host to the Hendrick’s Surreptitious Subterranean Summertime Garden which runs until early September. Providing a hidden gin drinker’s oasis, the pop-up sees Worship Street Whistling Shop transformed into a verdant retreat with an array of shrubbery, foliage and gardening paraphernalia. Amongst some of the touches in store for guests are cocktails served in wheelbarrows and watering cans, and a programme of masterclasses and events which will be announced throughout the duration of the pop-up.
Guests can prop themselves at the grass-covered bar or settle into the comfy sofas as they enjoy a menu of bespoke Hendrick’s Gin serves developed by the Worship Street Whistling Shop team. Paying homage to Hendrick’s curious arrangement of cucumber and rose petal infusions, the first menu – The Garden of Wonder & Unusual Flowers - plays with all things floral, whilst the second will be vegetal in nature and launch for the latter half of the pop-up.
The Cucumberolic 75 is a take on the classic French 75 which combines Hendrick’s Gin, Cucumber Acid and Sparkling Rose Flower, whilst the Anomalous Negroni is a peculiar conjuring of the classic aperitivo that mixes Hendrick’s with Hibiscus Sweet Wine and Kamm & Sons. In the Oddlytini Hendrick’s, Buzz Button Vermouth and Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto mix together to create a serve which reimagines the martini.
Worship Street Whistling Shop is an award-winning East London cocktail bar that was launched in 2011 by Tom Aske and Tristan Stephenson of Fluid Movement. Victorian inspired, the bar is styled on the gin palaces originally found in London in the 1820s, and is also home to an experimental beverage laboratory and dram shop. Vintage style décor and historically inspired drinks are contrasted by a modern and innovative approach. The latest iteration of the bar’s cocktail menu is themed around an atlas, with 36 drinks all relating to a specific time and place to plot a course through the history and geography of global drinking. Guests can also enjoy off-menu classics, draught beer and an extensive menu of wines and spirits with 80+ gins behind the bar, as well as whiskies and vintage liquors.
