Chelsea Courtyard is a cute little spot for a sunny summer’s weekend.
Now re-open for summer 2019, this sunkissed square, just off Kings Road, now boasts the by-now de rigeur floral glow-up. [Alternatively: 30 London pubs with brilliant beer gardens]
The bar/bistro has unveiled some new botanical cocktails to celebrate the season, and this weekend only (Jun 28-30) you’ll get a free Courtyard Punch on arrival – a juicy little gin number with Aperol, grapefruit, elderflower and peach that’s summer in a glass. A nice start to a lazy afternoon, then. [Nearby: find luxury eclairs at this Chelsea patisserie]
The all-day bar-bistro has a colourful, casual menu from breakfast-to-dinner – you can check out the menus here. The cocktail list, meanwhile, has ten terrific tipples to choose from, and the refreshing Chelsea Gardener, named for the chic garden centre just up the road, is a tasty combo of vodka, mint, cucumber & ginger beer perfect for when the temperatures rise.
There are shady spots, sunny spots, and generally everything you need for an afternoon of booze, snacks and chat. Give it a go and tell them we sent you!
