The Camden Night Market is back and better than ever. Relaunched and running every Thursday until August 29th, Camden’s summer nights are now packed with activities; the most enticing of which is probably their new Sailor Jerry-sponsored Cocktail Trail.
The cocktail trail essentially begins at their pop-up Boat Bar in the West Yard of Camden Lock and allows you to travel through the market to enjoy four massive cocktails for £20. The folks at Mighty Fine Choc & Fudge have created the glorious ‘Monkey Mule‘ (Monkey Shoulder Scotch Whisky mixed with Martini Rosso, marachino and chocolate bitters topped with chocolate-dipped bacon), Chin Chin Labs has come up with ‘The Vanilla Fling’ (creamy vanilla nitro ice cream with cucumber essence and Hendrick’s Gin), and Cafe Chula have concocted a Tia Maria Espresso Martini.
When it came time to taste Honest Burger‘s cocktail – ‘Sailor Jerry Lemonade Buck‘ (Sailor Jerry rum mixed with Honest’s homemade lemonade, topped with soda water) – the Manfriend and I could not say no to a little slice of burger heaven. Rosemary fries, people. Their menu is my kryptonite.
As well as ping pong competitions from Pongathon, live bands, and a bevy of the usual food stalls, each Thursday night wraps up with an outdoor film screening from the Backyard Cinema crew. It’s all beanbags, deck chairs, and to-your-seat drinks. Upcoming films include Die Hard (8th), Made of Stone (the Shane Meadows documentary – 15th), Evil Dead 2 (22nd), and Human Traffic (29th).
