Celebrate the Summer Solstice with gin cocktails, body painting and DJs at a street party in London.
This solstice, Nine Lives bar will be celebrating with a street party in conjunction with Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice Gin. On Saturday 22nd June, the neighbourhood bar will celebrate on the beautiful cobbled outdoor space during the day, before heading into the Victorian bar as the sun sets.
The event will include immersive actors, DJs, refreshing summer cocktails and an award-winning makeup artist.
Guests will be able to sip on summertime concoctions from the open-air bar, with drinks such as The Wickerman, a sweet-and-sour combination of Hendrick’s floral Midsummer Solstice Gin, cold-brew jasmine tea, tropical pineapple syrup and lemon.
Artist Caroline Young will be on hand to work her wild makeup magic with face and body painting; together with DJs Hotel Lobby who aim to provide an unforgettable soundtrack.
As night falls, Hendrick’s actors will perform an immersive ritual and the party will slip from ground level down to the basement bar, where a parallel universe awaits, full to the brim with Hendrick’s oddly exquisite Orbium Gin.
Indulge in the Dark Side of the Sun cocktail, made with Hendrick’s Orbium Gin, nutty Frangelico liqueur, blueberry puree and fragrant lemon verbena.
When: 22nd June 2019, from 2pm
Where: Nine Lives, 8 Holyrood Street, London SE1 2EL
