Honour the power of plants – but not in the saintly, clean-eating way you’re thinking of. The Garden Variety Bar opens Friday with party savants Background Bars hosting an oh-so-sophisticated English botanical themed cocktail soirée. Set in the Geffrye Museum’s stunning period gardens you can enjoy drinks infused and garnished with handpicked, home-grown herbs – it doesn’t get more organic than that. There will even be garden games to enjoy – spot of croquet with your gin, elderflower and fresh cucumber juice? Don’t mind if we do darling.
