See what we did there? So yes, we’re throwing a little bash at artisan cafe The Fields Beneath the day before the August Bank Holiday starts. And if you’re a) sweet of tooth and b) partial to a vodka-based libation or two, then you may want to join us. Well, we’d like you to anyway.
Tickets are very limited (to 40) and cost £10, which will give you the pleasure of two cocktails and a matched trio of summer desserts.
Artisan mixologists from acclaimed subterranean cocktail bar Shebeen will be concocting a bespoke range including a one-off collaborative espresso martini with the very fine coffee from The Fields Beneath, plus the thirst-quenching tall Kentishtowner cocktail, a blend of bitters, strawberry and soda, currently one of their bestsellers at the bar.
Meanwhile “Queen of Tarts” Clare Zerny, with her Flour Of London brand, will be matching these creations with such treats as mini meringue pies posing as Mr Whippy ice creams, cheesecake lollies and sundae dishes with scoops of different flavoured mousse and biscuit fans. Wowsers.
And once you’ve gorged on the cakes and cocktails, you may even wish to peruse items from the Kentishtowner shop, on sale for one night only in the cafe: T-shirts, tote bags and original art – as seen on recent print edition front covers.
Sounds quite fun, right? And if you’re still not done, there’ll be streetfood and beer at Camden Town Brewery next door.
