Turn up at the Pop Up: The Union/Hendricks affair

I recently attended the opening of The Union / Hendrick’s Gin Pop Up Bar in Illovo. In its third-year, The Union Pop Up Bar partnered with Hendrick’s Gin to bring to life, Victorian England.


The space is actually the Norman Goodfellows’ warehouse but it has been transformed to reflect the bitter-sweet Victorian era – from the quaint décor (i.e. soft porn) in the toilets to the Victorian-inspired cocktails mixed by five of the country’s top mixologists, as well as a specialist bartender from Hong Kong.

Don’t worry foodies, they have an amazing food menu provided by next-door neighbour, Bellinis.
