Readers of SEEN will know that we are always on the hunt for a new G&T in a lovely venue. Camino Bankside promises both. Their new Gin Garden pop up in their Spanish tapas restaurant and bar opens this June, at 5 Canvey Street, a short walk away from Tate Modern on the pedestrianised South Bank.

Taking Iberian inspiration with terracotta and glazed tiles, the terraza will be a little slice of Spanish heaven in this iconic part of London. The Gin Garden will serve you cocktails in large Spanish-style goblets. The tonics will include Fever Tree, Pedrino (an alcoholic tonic with Pedro Ximenes) plus natural botanicals. You can even design your own cocktail and embellish it with garnishes. The cocktails include:

Gin Mare: infused with Basil, thyme, rosemary and citrus, served with Fever Tree tonic, rosemary and olive.

Beefeater: London gin combining grapefruit and lemon peel with Chinese green tea, served with Fever Tree Lemon tonic, lemon and juniper berries.

Martin Millers Westbourne: English gin distilled with Icelandic water, Seville orange peel, cucumber and floral notes of parma violet, served with orange peel and cucumber.

If the cocktails and tapas tempt you as much as they tempt us, then be sure to check out Head Chef Nacho de Campo’s masterclasses throughout the summer. These will include a Paella Masterclass with Mahou (23rd July); gin masterclass Steeped in London Beefeater G&T Masterclass (3rd August) and Fever Tree Tonic and Gin Mare Pairings (24th August)

There will be live music from a Spanish guitarist and a Mahou beer keg located outdoors. What better way to tempt authentic Spanish sunshine to the South Bank of London?

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
