Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

NEW SUMMER MENU 2

Recently relaunched by DHP Family, iconic venue The Garage has been given a thorough refurb throughout, with new sound-system and décor as well as the addition of a stand-alone, all-day bar and cafe: The General Store. This July, The General Store has launched a dedicated summer cocktail menu which features an array of fruity, frozen and refreshing summer tipples including ever-tempting classics such as The General Store Mai Thai alongside the enticing concoctions such as the zingy English Garden.

A venue steeped in musical history – The Garage has hosted the likes of Radiohead, Bring Me The Horizon and Red Hot Chilli Peppers – The General Store now offers music fans, gig-goers and non-gig goers cocktails that live up to the calibre of the musical performers.

Drawing inspiration from its name – The General Store at The Garage – takes subtle design details from an American filling station stores across small-town America. This reinvented, bright and light-strewn spot is the perfect summer stop-off to grab a post-work cocktail. SEEN is pleased to report that it is a lovely friendly bar and sports a very on-trend shade of green throughout, ideal for a pre or post-gig drink to keep you in that party spirit. Its openness and natural light make it a refreshing change from darker, more enclosed bars.

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.
