Botanical Bar on the Floating Pocket Park

A pop-up gin bar on London’s premier ‘Floating Pocket Park’ in Paddington.

The pop-up bar (in association with Lockhouse) is big enough for 100 gin aficionados to squeeze into and has a dazzling variety of delicious gins, unusual tinctures and only the best in “skilfully distilled mixers” from The London Essence Company. The bar is open Thursdays and Fridays throughout the summer, from 12-9pm. To complement the drinks offering, the Botanical Bar will also host a programme of cocktail making masterclasses and gin tasting events for more info contact

London’s first Floating Pocket Park is located Paddington Basin on the Grand Union Canal and provides a striking green public space on the water with its own canal boat mooring. The Floating Pocket Park features open lawn areas, densely planted nectar-rich mixed raised borders and communal seating, as well as allowing you to walk over the water on a series of decked platforms and walkways.
