Opening today (Friday June 24), the new venue offers East Londoners a sprawling new space to soak up the sunshine in a contemporary, urban setting.
McQueen Outdoor is launching with an exclusive menu of signature cocktails such as the refreshing McQueen Spritz (Kamm & Sons, Crème de Cassis, Prosecco and soda) and the Cincinnati Cooler (Grey Goose vodka, Mandarine Napoleon, fresh mandarins, cinnamon syrup and fresh lime juice). Elsewhere a dedicated Champagne bar will add a touch of luxury to proceedings.
Meanwhile, an outdoor grill will be turning out a selection of summer dishes such as the Ultimate hotdog served with sauerkraut, English mustard and bacon crisps and Grilled chicken skewers with roasted peppers, caramelized onion, Portobello mushrooms and sweet chilli sauce.
The new terrace has been designed by McQueen owner and interior designer Dezzi McCausland, and channels the same sense of rugged glamour found in the main venue, with the fully decked area complimented by exposed brickwork, quilted leather paneling and Chesterfield seating. Exclusively commissioned street art pieces from Belfast artist Visual Waste complete the look, with images of pop culture icons lending the space a distinctive urban flourish.
What’s more, McQueen Outdoor is handily situated a stone’s throw from the main site, meaning guests can simply wander over the road to carry on their night. The King Of Cool just got cooler…
