LONDON PICNIC CLUB
London, United Kingdom
Experiential artists Platterform continue their residency at the Skyroom launching straight into their next hotly tipped immersive food and drink adventure- THE LONDON PICNIC CLUB.
Platterform collected the Young British Foodies ‘Best Food Experience’ award earlier this year and with their curated events aim to surprise and excite their audience with top quality food and drink at the heart of their ongoing experiments with performance, space and social interaction- creating a feast for all 5 senses!
Running for the duration of the Olympics and Paralympics, the Skyroom designed by young architect David Kohn (creator of a Room for London atop the Queen Elizabeth Hall in South Bank) will gradually undergo a transformation into a garden with a difference- a colourful, living and breathing roof top oasis allowing guests to retreat from the London chaos below.
Share and enjoy exquisite food and drink presented in the form of surprising picnic hampers, take part in garden games, catch a variety of exclusive and intimate live music acts or stretch out on blankets and cushions to watch one of our especially selected movies at our mini screen on the green.
The primary focus of the London Picnic Club involves a progressive and evolving food and drink menu that will show a strong relation to our developing roof top garden installation- keeping things seasonal and directly interactive with our space.
The experience is aimed to be surprising at all times, where our guests will discover new flavours in a playful and dynamic environment that brims full of creativity and connects people in new ways...
Platterform’s new head chef Alejandro Bello (of Ceviche fame) has collected and carefully reinvented select dishes from various corners of the world all assembled beautifully inside an iconic British picnic hamper. Designed as a sharing meal, expect London Picnic Club hampers to contain inspirational tapas style hot dishes, innovative ceviches and fresh garden salads as well as a fine selection of produce from local suppliers including artisanal bread from St. John's Bakery, cheese from Neal's Yard Dairy and charcuterie from Brindisa all served with home-made preserves and dips. Exotic desserts, fresh Summer fruits and surprising treats complete the package.
Drinks take inspiration from the quintessential British Summer garden where Platterform delve into the world of experimentation using their own garden ingredients to make shrubs (fruit preserves), infusions, cordials and bitters to combine with premium spirits, fresh fruits and hand picked garden herbs.
