The Gun has always been “a refuge from the sterility of Canary Wharf” – and now City types can enjoy its stunning views over to the O2 while sipping on current bankers’ drink of choice; the Aperol Spritz. The historic, yet “tastefully refurbished” Docklands’ gastropub has transformed its outdoor space into the Spritz Shack, complete with lawn, deck chairs and summer menu.
The private bar will include specially-designed Aperol cocktails, alongside traditional English Fruit Cups, beer chilling in ice-filled wheelbarrows and a selection of wines. There are also foodie packages to choose from: Picnic basket (finger sandwiches; Sicilian olives; broccoli and stilton quiche; mini sausage rolls) £17 per person; Market stall menu (black pudding Scotch eggs; kiln roast honey salmon; smoked mackerel pÃ¢té; or rare roast beef with horseradish) £26-£42 per person; Canapé Menu £17 for six canapés per person or £21 for nine canapés per person; and Bowl Food Menu (Billingsgate fish pie; prawn, avocado and Marie Rose salad; fish and chips; steak and Guinness pie; or strawberry Eton mess) £16-£26 per person.
The Spritz Shack is open until the end of September and can be booked exclusively for parties from 30 – 250 (minimum spends applies), for afternoon or evening sessions. For more information contact Madlen at The Gun on 020 7515 5222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
