Private cocktail bar, BBQ, and architectural salvage in SE1.
Swallows & Amazons was a sell-out, four-weekend-only collaboration between Disappearing Dining Club (Back in 5 Minutes, Dinner Dance, Town House) and Background Bars, the drinks team behind the award winning Night / Summer Tales.
This was our idea of what a night out in a modern London members club should feel like in the summer; fruit filled spritzes, sangrias and juleps, a stream of snacks, salads and sides from the DDC BBQ, a soundtrack of lazy rock & roll and disco, and LASSCO's lavish and eccentric collection of architectural salvage, antiques, furniture and collectables.
Access was strictly limited (because of all the lovely and often expensive things in the shop!), and we sold all of our tickets before we even launched the first night.
Tickets were just £26, included a welcome Woodford Reserve Mint Julep, and a selection of dishes from the DDC kitchen.Swallows & Amazons / LASSCO Ropewalk, SE1Every Friday & Saturday night / June 19th to July 11th 20156.30pm till 11pm / £26
