I am proud to announce the Cheeky Tiki pop-up tiki bar and the Bespoke Barware gallery at Atomica Gallery. It will take place from the 7th to the 12th of October for this London Cocktail Week.
Cheeky Tiki provides all elements of modern and traditional South Seas style and what it’s called Tiki decor, hitting a complete interior design and also creating small accessories which you can adquired at Atomica Gallery.
At this time Atomica will transform the gallery, just during this week, into a real tropical booth paradise where they will offer a nice selection of rum cocktails served in cool mugs as the previous tiki one!!
Some very especial events will be running at this place as some talks about rum by Peter Holland, a blogger from TheFloatingRum Shack.com or the Every day (Tues-Sun): Rum tastings from a different brand each day – brands include The Real McCoy, Ron Cubay and El Dorado 6pm/£free.
If you want to have a look of the many others events arasing this week at Atomica, have a look at their web or facebook page:
Before I moved from Warren Street to this neighborhood, I felt this area would show me more of London than the Skyline of the own city does. I am not here to exaggerate the convergence of the culture, I am here to explain how I am feeling within this new place without parking in the sideline any of the London’s neighborhoods, as each is different, growing up with similitudes but in their own geography and past history, and everyone should have this in mind.
More lucky than not, I fall down in this area, and now I have discovered new places to go and discover art, at this point the main theme for me, and a motivated comunity who looks to inspire people from this area and the rest of them to came and enjoy the social happenings of Peckham.
At this point I may say I have got inspired to dedicated the name of my blog to this occurrence, even if I am still in love with Fitzrovia, my previous neighbordhood ❤ London
