Looking for an extra special venue for your first cocktail date?
If it’s drinks in dreamy surroundings you’re after, The River Lee has been busy transforming the terrace at The River Club into a whimsical haven of Irish wildflowers.
Created in partnership with the vodka brand Ketel One Botanical, Meadow at The River Club opens on June 7th.
The new venue aims to “celebrate the beauty and diversity of indigenous Irish wildflowers while being as sustainable and climate-conscious as possible”, building a gorgeous garden escape in the heart of the city.
Working together with Fox Flowers, the team re-used their silk cornflower, chamomile, poppies and lavender from their 2019 installation, adding large planters bursting with the earthy fresh scent of rosemary, lavender and other herbs.
A dramatic slate feature wall covered in beautiful blooms will serve as a centrepiece for the space.
In line with sowing the seed of sustainability, guests who purchase a bespoke Ketel One Botanical cocktail on the terrace will be gifted a wildflower seed bomb to take home and sow in their own garden.
So what’s on the menu?
Whether you like a cocktail to pack some punch or opt for a lower alcohol or non-alcoholic tipple, this list has everyone covered from the O2 One, A Breath of Fresh Eire, Peachy Keane, Flower Power to a Citrus Grove.
Cocktails are priced from €10 to €13 with €1 from each cocktail going to the VITA Honey Project. VITA is an Irish charity supporting impoverished families to work in the sustainable honey industry in Ethiopia.
The terrace will be open seven days a week, 11am until late from June 7th, 2021. Bookings open on theriverclubcork.ie on May 20th.
