In Victorian London, the rivers were practically flowing with gin (ah, the good old days). Fast-forward to 2018 for a return to form: Selfridges in central London has had an actual negroni fountain installed on its rooftop. From today, visitors to the serene space overlooking Oxford Street will be able to enjoy a negroni fresh from the fountain.
It’s been created by Martini and they’ve gone for a design that reflects the historic fountains you’ll still find in Turin, which famously spout water from a bull’s head. As well as drinking straight from the cow’s mouth, you’ll be able to indulge in free antipasti during happy hour. From 4-6pm, punters who order two cocktails will receive free Italian snacks from San Carlo restaurant.
The negroni fountain and a menu of red-hued cocktails will be in place throughout September, with the rooftop open to negroni lovers from 11.30am until 11pm, daily. Find us underneath and with our mouths wide open.
