Introducing The Olive Grove Pop-Up Experience in London
7 days a week at Union Street Café
This spring you’re invited on a gastronomical journey underground to celebrate one humble yet powerful ingredient – the olive.
Book your table and have your taste buds transported to Italy as part of a unique and immersive bar experience. Drink and dine under a canopy of olive trees and vines, all while experiencing the sights, tastes and smells of an Italian summer’s day.
Have you ever wondered what makes the best extra virgin olive oil? Almost everyone has a bottle of extra virgin olive oil in the kitchen these days – find out what actually the best is and whether you are using it properly with our recent GRapevine inspiration blog post.
The Olive Grove drinks and bar snacks feature two contrasting single-variety extra virgin olive oils from Puglia. Coratina is full-bodied, fruity and spicy; Leccino (made using one of Italy’s favourite olives) is a lighter, golden-green oil. Davide Gagliazzo, Bar Manager at Union Street Café, has also joined forces with Martini, the world’s leading vermouth brand famed as the perfect Italian aperitivo, to create an experimental bar menu, with each cocktail featuring olive oil. Head Chef Davide Degiovanni has produced a unique bar snack menu celebrating the olive, each dish perfectly paired to a cocktail on the menu.
The Olive Grove will be open 7 days a week (Mon - Fri from 4pm, Sat - Sun from 12pm), for a 3 month period. A number of walk-ins will be available and the space can be hired exclusively for big groups and events. Throughout the installation, interactive masterclasses will be available to book, as well as live music nights. Full line ups to be announced soon.
