The summer solstice tomorrow has given reason for an excellent pop-up project tomorrow. Located in Victoria Park, East Lodnon, where a healthy splattering of ‘cool’ resides, you can make the most of sunny days and balmy nights at the Rekorderlig Midsummer House, a pop-up Swedish hideaway in the heart of East London in Victoria Park.
Launching today and running until the July 5th, guests will step out of the urban capital, and straight into a blissful oasis that captures cool Scandi-style. The summerhouse will be decorated with authentic Swedish homely touches and a relaxed outdoor area. Kick back on decking overlooking the tranquil waters of the lake as chilled beats flow through the house.
Regardless of whether the English summer lives up to its promise, the Midsummer House promises a little patch of sunshine as the Rekorderlig flows. Native Scandinavian chefs Norse by NorseWest will be serving up a menu of Korv med brod – Swedish style hot dogs with freshly made toppings including wild lingonberry (made with Rekorderlig Wild Berries), cucumber relish, prawn salad and Danish Remoulade.
The Midsummer bar will serve the extensive range of Rekorderlig’s fruit ciders, including the limited edition Summer Cider, Passionfruit. Mixologists will also be making cider cocktails, with include the Rekorderlini, (Rekorderlig Pear and Champagne, fused with fresh lemon juice and chocolate syrup) and Midsummer Martini (Rekorderlig Apple-Blackcurrant shaken with vanilla gomme, gin and lemon juice; garnished with a twist of lemon).
The pop-up follows the sell-out success of last year’s Winter Forest Bar. Tickets cost £10 and entitles each person to a complimentary Rekorderlig Cider of their choice and a Swedish BBQ tasting bite.
