This Gin-Filled Festive Treehouse In The Shard Looks Unreal

Make your way up to the 32nd floor of The Shard and you’ll find London’s classiest winter pop-up…

This foliage-filled residence from the gin heroes at Tanqueray is making the View from The Shard‘s restaurant Oblix even better – and we honestly didn’t think that was possible. Get your phones out people, because this place is definitely one for your Instagram feeds!


Tanquery No. TEN have come up with the perfect way to show off their gin’s grapefruit botanicals over the festive season – with a pop-up inspired by an enchanted woodland treehouse. Enter through an orange scented tree tunnel into a bar space decked out with twinkling lights, real twisting branches, and green lanterns made from Tanqueray bottles. Can somebody please get us our own gin lamp for Christmas?!


And it’s not all style over substance either, because they’re serving up an impressive selection of botanical cocktails alongside paired canapé bar snacks from the Oblix East kitchen. Hint: if – like us – you’re a truffle fan, you’re going to absolutely love their truffle flatbreads. We honestly can’t stop telling people how mouthgasm-ingly awesome they were.


Their cocktail menu is the star of the show, though. Take a trip back to your childhood with their Dandelion and Burdock Collins or satisfy your sweet tooth with their blackcurrant-infused Treetop’s Club cocktail (which you can see pictured above).

The pop-up is open now at Oblix East in The Shard and it’s running until the 27th December. Oh, and we should also mention that they’re throwing a big knees-up from 10pm to 2am on the 2nd December which you can nab tickets for here. For £20 you’ll get entry, a welcome Tanqueray No. TEN treehouse cocktail on arrival, and canape-style bar snacks from the Oblix East menu. Not one to be missed!
