Cocktails & Campfire in the City
Midnight Apothecary offers a pocket of wilderness in the midst of the urban landscape. Our hidden roof garden is located just 15 mins from Waterloo on the Jubilee line, and provides a haven of idyllic bliss: relax around the firepit; imbibe exquisite alcoholic prescriptions infused with ingredients grown in our garden; cuddle up to watch the sun set over the river, and descend underground into the Brunel Tunnel Grand Entrance Hall for a guided tour.

2. COMMUNING WITH NATURE
‘Wildness is a necessity’. So said John Muir, Father of the National Parks, and we wholeheartedly agree. So we offer a pocket of wilderness in the midst of urban London.
‘I’ve discovered what I’ve always thought of as my personal heaven: an English country garden, full of lavender with exotic looking birds on gently swaying trees and a bar with cocktails in constant flow’ – fluidlondon.co.uk
The Grand Entrance Hall to Brunel’s Thames Tunnel, the world’s first beneath a river, is an underground chamber half the size of Shakespeare’s Globe. Take our free tour and learn how the young Brunel nearly drowned here building the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ and how, before the trains came, it was the world’s first underground theatre, echoing with applause for acrobats, tightrope walkers and serenaders.
How often is it you can gather around a roaring firepit and recapture that feeling of cosy summer nights camping, all without leaving the city?
Our evening campfire at the heart of the garden is one of our most popular features – that and the limitless supply of free marshmallows to toast!
We work with local volunteers to maintain the garden and keep it productive. When you visit us, you’re helping support the local Rotherhithe community and environment. This commitment to local business and the environment is the reason why we also stock Bermondsey’s Hiver Honey Beer, which helps protect the local bee population.
