Speakeasy goes flower power for Chelsea Show

Published:  05 April, 2012

Secret speakeasy bar Barts is going flower power crazy in honour of The Chelsea Flower Show which will take place from May 22-26.

Located a stone's throw from the event, Barts has created a cocktail in homage to the show, named The Chelsea Flower. A blend of Grey Goose Vodka, Creme de Peche de vigne, and Mette spiritueux de Lavande, it is served in a martini glass and garnished with an edible pansy.

Barts is renowned for its fancy dress box and for the duration of the show the box will be themed along the lines of Flower Power. Guests will be able to delve into the box and find anything from ultimate hippy flares, John Lennon specs to wings and flowers worn by flower fairies.

Just in the time for the Chelsea show, Barts has also opened a Cuban garden where guests can sip their drinks surrounded by lush foliage and exotic plants.

Barts is owned by Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling, the founders of Inception Group, which own 80s-themed nightclub Maggie's and Italian pizzeria Bunga Bunga.
