Blooming lovely – Shochu at ROKA Charlotte Street has unveiled its cherry blossom installation with a neon twist
Covering the entire ceiling of the basement bat, guests can also enjoy the playful addition of pale pink neon lighting throughout the display to highlight the delicate blooms and enhance the ambience of the bar.
Until 20th June, guests will be invited to dine on ROKA’s signature Japanese-inspired cuisine underneath a glowing blanket of blossom – as well as three bespoke cocktails that play on the sweet flavours of spring.
• Sakura Sour, akashi-tai plum sake with arbikie vodka, passion fruit and sakura paste.
• Morello Fizz: roku gin with morello cherry, red vermouth and soda top.
• Cherry & Tonka Manhattan: nikka from the barrel whisky stirred with oloroso sherry, sobacha and tonka
Shochu will be adorned with pink-tinted sakura until June to pay homage to the Japanese practice of Hanami, the enjoyment and viewing of the transient beauty of flowers.
The installation has been created by Veevers Carter, an events agency specialising in vibrant floral designs. For the duration of the installation, Shochu will also be open during lunch times on Saturday and Sunday only.
