beer gardens in London
To all Londoners out there – and those who are in London over the summer -, you better listen up! Summer is (finally) getting closer and this means that you should go outside as much as possible, enjoy the sun, so basically get tanned and meeting up with your friends for a fresh drink. As London is a really big town with plenty of different places to grab a drink, we would like to present you our personal selection of 8 amazing beer gardens and rooftop bars.
1) Netil 360
The perfect place to be on a warm summer evening, watching the sun slowly going down over the London skyline with some electro-pop beats playing in the background. Can you wish for anything else?
2) Earl of Essex
This beer garden is basically the back garden of a craft beer pub and besides serving of course really good beer, you can also get some high quality ciders there. You can enjoy your drink in a really cozy atmosphere with picnic tables and surrounded by some ivy tendrils climbing up the brick walls.
3) Queen of Hoxton
This rooftop bar located in the heart of Camden is a real hippie adventure. Artistically coloured chairs and picnic tables stand next to pink and yellow flowerpots. To sum up, a happy hippie paradise and if you have a look at their events, you can even find some open-air cinema sessions organised on the rooftop.
4) Grand Union Brixton
You should totally check out this beer garden if you feel like going on a holiday just for one evening. In this bar you can sit in a beach cabana à la Ibiza while listening to some acoustic live music.
5) Dalston Roof Park
This rooftop bar is not only perfect to chill and drink with your fellows, but also the place to be for special events just as amazing rooftop gigs that you can check out before going there.
6) Garden Gate
Have you already been to Hampstead Heath? If you feel like being surrounded by nature and only nature after living day by day the urban London life, this area should definitely be on your “To-Go” list. You will feel las if you were in a completely new setting, far away from London, and at the same time it’s a really good spot for an amazing view over London. AND you can grab a cold beer at The Garden Gate – we just introduced you to the perfect plan for a day trip, right?
7) Frank’s Cafe
Probably one of the biggest rooftop bars so far. And for all those who didn’t know: Peckham is one of the best places to go out in London! Some recent surveys even made Peckham to one of the areas in which many Londoners would like to live. So let’s start by at least grabbing a beer or a cocktail at Frank’s Café!
London Ethnic Event
This weekend Chi was at the London Ethnic event for ‘Fashion Revolution Day’ which was launched after the horrific Rana Plaza catastrophe in Dhaka, Bangladesh the 24 April 2013.The factory collapse led to 1133 victims dead and thousands more injured, casting a dark shadow over the history of fashion.
The event took place at the Lollipop Gallery in London on the 24th of April 2015 for the fashion workers who lost their lives that terrible day. London Ethnic event was there to raise money for their families and increase awareness of the human work exploitation in fashion. And also the importance of ethical & sustainable principles in the fashion industry.
The fashion presentation was run by a brand new designs from the London Ethnic House produced in collaboration with in-house designers Eleanor Johnson and Nuria Carvajal Garcia with designer Reece Walywn Curtis. The London Ethnic AW15 collection was inspired by the London Skyline and street colouring transformed into simplistic shapes in the hues of blue and grey.
Here are some nice pictures of the event!

like show business
The team at Chi drinks has been busy at the Food and Drink Expo show in Birmingham over the last few days. It has been a great opportunity to speak to some of our fans and make some new friends. We like nothing more than being able to talk about our products and see people enjoy trying them.
Next up is the Be:Fit show in London. The show is all about helping women to gain long term tools to be strong, fit and healthy – something we believe strongly in at Chi HQ!
Chi Coconut Water David and Isika make one of many visits to an orphanage in Thailand. Along with basics such as rice, we brought presents and toys.
I knew that the success of this product would be where and how we source our raw material from. That is why myself and David made the trip to Thailand to find the perfect coconuts. This trip would not have been possible without the assistance of Isika, who helped us find our way around, translate and navigate our way through a foreign culture. An amazing journey and a wonderful start to the Chi Coconut Water project.
