Oslo in Hackney: Summer in the City

Yes, at last the warmer weather is upon us! And that can only mean one thing: delicious cocktails enjoyed outside. SEEN has learned that scandi-haven OSLO, in Hackney, has a delightful new menu featuring a selection of refreshing concoctions, perfect for the warm weather and summer months, which may even last until the end of September, you never know your luck. The cocktails take much-loved classics and mix them up with fresh and zesty flavourings, including the likes of Pink Grapefruit, Wild Peach, Violette, Camomile and Rose.

The Summer menu includes:

Miller’s Gin, Pink Grapefruit Liqueur, Home-made Camomile Syrup

Icelandic Martini
Icelandic Martini

Elderflower & Rose Syrup, Egg White & Fresh Lemon Juice

Green Mistress

Ocho Blanco Tequila, Wild Peach Liqueur & Fresh Lime Juice

Aperol, Elderflower Liqueur, Rhubarb Bitters, Orange Bitters, Prosecco

OSLO Spritz

Tanqueray Gin, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Violette Liqueur


Make SEEN’s a large Aviation and don’t stint on the gin. After-work drinks never sounded so good. We have a feeling that Oslo’s outdoor terrace will fast become THE place to hang out in East London over the Summer. Skol, as they say in Norway.

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
