St-Germain pop-up

Bacardi-owned brand St-Germain is set to open its 'Maison St-Germain' pop-up in central London this weekend, inviting guests to celebrate summer indulgence in a 1920s fashion. The elderflower liqueur brand has teamed up with floral designer Emily Baylis, also known as ‘June in March’, to create the pop-up, and guests will begin their experience with a visit to Baylis, before being led through a floral corridor to the central piece - a green room made up of fresh blossom. In the main zone of the pop-up, guests will be able to treat themselves at the St-Germain bar, where they can enjoy cocktails and a live jazz band. A staircase leads up to the the first floor, where the Maison will host a speakeasy. Visitors can sample an exclusive collection of St-Germain cocktails, and workshops will be on offer for those wanting to get more involved.

Amstel's 'Ice Bath Pub'

Beer brand Amstel, part of the Heineken company, is staging a Cold Tub Pub in London, celebrating the Prudential Ride London cycling event. The brand is inviting cyclists to cool down post-cycle by submerging themselves in ice cold water as they sip an Amstel Bier. Inspired by the popularity of ice baths among athletes, guests are invited to step into a custom built bath tub full of ice cold water for up to ten minutes. After the ice bath experience, visitors will have the option to relax in a normal pub setting while admiring the array of cycling memorabilia displayed on the pub’s walls.

Where: Southwark, London
