RECOMMENDED: London’s best beer gardens
Pub-food-hall hybrid The Prince has four eateries, three bars and London’s largest beer garden draped in lots of trailing foliage. There’s even a retractable roof if the weather turns.
Thought your house plant collection was impressive? Wait until you step inside Mr Fogg’s House of Botanicals. It’s packed full of plants, with pastel decor and floral armchairs to match.
At Bourne & Hollingsworth’s new ‘living bar’, you’ll find greenery growing up the walls. But the foliage isn’t just there to look pretty – it provides fresh ingredients and garnishes for your drinks.
Moorgate-based South Place Hotel can't get enough of botanical-inspired bars. Since February it’s been serving up gin cocktails in its Enchanted Garden (pictured). And it’s now been transformed into the Mediterranean-inspired Rosé Riviera.
Every year, Shochu Lounge brings spring indoors with its dreamy sakura installation. It’s now a permanent fixture, so you can sip cocktails under a pink blossom-covered ceiling all year round.
