A Taste of the Amalfi Coast at Oslo Hackney

Having a staycation this year? Well, SEEN’s with you! If you’re after a flavour of other countries in our fair city then get along to the wondrous OSLO bar in Hackney and treat yourself to a taste of the Amalfi Coast this Thursday 24th August with some poco-tonics and an array of refreshing summer cocktails.

Pococello’s Piaggo Ape has been delivering rays of sunshine to some of London’s finest drinking spots this past month including ‘Tapping the Admiral’ and ‘Pizza Pilgrims’. Catch them at OSLO for a day of summer delights, see a taster below of what’s on offer:

South Coast
The South Coast packs a punch, combining Gin and Pococello, fresh lemon, syrup and mint, it’s definitely one for a sunny afternoon.

Sunshine Spritz
The Sunshine Spritz uses the refreshing tastes of Pococello and adds Prosecco and gin, built in a wine glass and topped with a lemon wheel.

Oslo is handily situated right next to Hackney Central Station and is a fab Nordic-themed restaurant and live music venue. Enjoy – and as they say in Italy, saluti!
