Nine Lives is hosting a solstice party with Hendrick’s Gin!

This solstice, Nine Lives is celebrating with a street party in conjunction with Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice Gin.

On Saturday 22nd June, the neighbourhood bar will celebrate Hendrick’s new playfully light yet wickedly crisp libation, as partygoers bask in the midsummer sun.

The event will be set on the beautiful cobbled outdoor space during the day, before heading into the Victorian bar as the sun sets and will include immersive actors, delectable DJs, glorious cocktails and an award-winning makeup artist.

Sip on summertime concoctions from the open-air bar such as: The Wickerman, a sweet-and-sour combination of Hendrick’s floral Midsummer Solstice Gin, cold-brew jasmine tea, tropical pineapple syrup and lemon; and Vivid Blooms, which comprises the celebrated gin, rhubarb and ginger cordial, aromatic lavender bitters and pomegranate & hibiscus soda.

Artist Caroline Young will be on hand to work her wild makeup magic with face & body painting, together with DJs Hotel Lobby who never fail to bring an unforgettable soundtrack.

As night falls, Hendrick’s actors will perform an immersive ritual and the party will slip from ground level down to the basement bar, where a parallel universe awaits, full to the brim with Hendrick’s oddly exquisite Orbium Gin.

Indulge in the Dark Side of the Sun cocktail, made with Hendrick’s Orbium Gin, nutty Frangelico liqueur, blueberry puree and fragrant lemon verbena. Instilled with quinine, wormwood and blue lotus blossom, Orbium is a complex gin that sits roundly on the palate.

Kicking off at 2pm, expect sublime cocktails to flow and good vibes to continue into the wee hours.
