This Beautiful Bloomsbury Terrace Has Transformed Into A Sri Lankan Jungle

Dalloway Terrace will transport guests to Sri Lanka this spring.

The days are getting longer, and it’s always around this time that Dalloway Terrace reveal their spring pop-up. This year, it has transformed into a stunning Sri Lankan jungle, complete with unique, native flora. The space takes inspiration from Leonard Woolf’s novel ‘The Village in the Jungle’ and is the perfect place to escape the hustle.

Featuring a luscious overgrown jungle canopy with bursts of fuchsia from orchids and passion flowers,  the terrace is a tropical paradise. Relax with a botanical cocktail inspired by Sri Lankan flavours, including: a Ceylon Punch with mango-infused Ceylon Arrack, Ceylon black tea, citrus shrub and coconut water; a Jungle Old Fashioned with spiced rum, ginger, falernum and orange bitters; and a Tropical Negroni with pineapple gin, Belsazar Dry, Cinnamon Tincture, pink grapefruit, kumquat and Amaro Montenegro.

The menu will be equally exotic with brand new dishes such as a Smoked Jackfruit Salad with lime and chilli dressing and a Sri Lankan Curry with tofu, chickpeas, lime pickles and poppadom. There’ll also be the usual breakfast, afternoon tea and weekend brunch offerings, too.

Speaking of their afternoon tea: this also happens to be getting a Sri Lankan twist. New additions include a Mango and Coriander Tart with pink peppercorn meringue; a Lychee and Coconut Cake with lime glaze; and a Pineapple and Red Chilli Terrine with red vein sorrel. There’ll also be plenty of Sri Lankan teas to try, of course.
