Award winning Near & Far launch new cocktail bar and kitchen in Camden
The third instalment of the Near & Far family takes the Palm Springs concept to the next level with new flagship site, offering a Californian oasis slap-bang in the middle of Camden, opposite The Stables and iconic music venue Roundhouse.
The newest Near & Far is set over four floors holding 180 guests, offering a lounge area, two bars and a stunning covered roof terrace with views over the market and beyond. The cocktail menu is inspired by world travels while the kitchen will serve mouth watering Mexican street food served daily by Elote, one of London’s top pop-up kitchens.
Pastel hues, lush greens, desert shades, palm trees and cacti fill the interior with the terrace open all year round offering a relaxing haven from the bustle of Camden town.
Near & Far is collaborating with Elote who will be taking over the kitchen, offering high-end Mexican street food. Elote is the creation of Alex Hutton, formerly the Head Chef of Caravan in Kings Cross and the OXO Tower. ‘Elote’ is a traditional corn based street food found across Southern Mexico and is one of the key items on the menu, alongside mouth watering dishes such as Tamarind Dressed Crab Tostados and Braised Beef & Chipotle Tacos. The menu features a wide range of veggie and vegan options (the Chickpea Chips with Chipotle Mayo is something special) and best of all, everything on the menu is gluten free!
The venue is open 7 days a week with a late licence until 2am Thursdays to Saturdays, making it a perfect weekend party destination. The lineup will include DJs playing the brand’s signature style of Latin and Balearic house and laid back disco.
Alongside weekly entertainment, the venue will also offer a selection of excellent interactive events including ArtNight (a super fun painting party) and Cocktail Masterclasses, both perfect for those looking for something a little different for work parties or celebrations. Two bookable party areas are available and can offer exclusive hire throughout the week.
