Located on Greek Street in Soho, the sun filled pop-up space features a glass ceiling, meanwhile an abundance of live plants have been brought in to set the scene. 

In true Fentimans fashion, the botanicals from the plants are being used to create a range of specially formulated cocktails that showcase its range of mixers.

L’Escargot’s manager, Matthew Preedy has devised six cocktails for the pop-up, including the Lillet Rose, which is made using Lillet Blanc and Fentimans Rose lemonade, the Curiosity, a concoction featuring bourbon, orange zest and Fentimans Curiosity Cola and Little Treacle, which showcases Fentimans Dandelion and Burdock offering.

The beverage brand’s full range of mixers are also available for purchase, including its Bloom and Tonic and Bloom and Rosé Lemonade ready to drink products, which have been developed in partnership with Chelsea gin company, Bloom. 

The pop-up bar space will host a number of events throughout the month, including the launch of Captains House with the England Rugby team and Chase vodka in the lead up to the Rugby World Cup.

Non-members are invited to visit the Fentimans pop-up, which is open until 31 August. 

In May, vodka brand Hendrick's launched a similar pop-up, Hendrick's Horticultural Oasis, within Blake's Hotel Kensington, where beverages were made using ingredients from the garden.
