Chelsea in Bloom

Last week our Horse Box bar popped down to London and parked up on Sloane Square in the heart of Chelsea. Running alongside RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Chelsea in Bloom was also gracing the streets of SW1. Now in its 13th year, it is an annual five-day event where a number of shops get creative to present breath-taking floral art displays that follow a given theme – this years was ‘Summer of Love’. With the Royal Wedding taking place and the colourful elements of the 60s/70s Cultural Revolution, there was an opportunity to really go to town.

Amongst the beautiful displays, our bar was also adorned in a colourful, floral arrangement – didn’t it look divine? Located in the perfect spot for the many passing by to sit down, have a cocktail and enjoy the surroundings beneath the leafy shelter of the square. We teamed up with our friends at The Botanist on Sloane Square to create two unique and delicious, floral-inspired cocktails. Aptly named ‘Love is in the Square’ the Botanist combined our Chase Vodka with Elderflower Liqueur, Earl Grey sugar syrup topped with Crémant and edible English flowers.

A truly unique and wonderful event, the community of Chelsea really made the area a focal point for everyone to experience. Head to their website here to check out which shops were commended the top spots from the judges.
