Negroni Week at Lockside Camden

Negroni Week

24-30 June 2019

Lockside Camden are proud to be taking part in this year’s official international Negroni Week in association with Imbibe Magazine and Campari.

Launched in 2013, Negroni Week now has around 10,000 bars all over the world taking part and has raised upwards of $2 million for charitable causes.

The 2019 Negroni Week is extra special as it is celebrating the 100th birthday of the Negroni itself!

The legend has it that the Negroni was created in Florence when Count Camillo Negroni asked bartender Fosco Scarselli, to strengthen his favorite cocktail, the Americano, by adding gin rather than the normal soda water. The bartender also added an orange garnish rather than the typical lemon garnish of the Americano to signify that it was a different drink. It quickly gained popularity throughout Europe in the 1920s, and a century later it’s the second most ordered drink in the world for five years in a row.

Every bar that signs up to Negroni Week nominates a charity to raise money for and this year, Lockside Camden is delighted to be raising money for Water for People. 2.1 billion people around the world don’t have access to safe water and 4.5 billion lack access to adequate sanitation. Women and children spend more than four hours walking for water each day, and more than 840,000 people die each year from water-related diseases.

For 7 days, Lockside Camden will be serving a very special Negroni cocktail menu:

The Classic Negroni

  • Bombay Sapphire Gin, Campari and Martini Rosso

An Oaxacan Negroni

  • Gem + Bolt Mezcal, Campari and Martini Rosso

The Camden Negroni

  • Half Hitch Gin, Sacred English Vermouth and Kamm & Sons

The Twisted Americano Negroni

  • Campari, Martini Rosso topped with Chinooto soda

All at just £6 each.

Rhea Cambridge – My Secret Life as a DJ

We’re huge fans of The Lemonade Girlz and their awesome monthly Friday night residency here at Lockside Camden.

Before Christmas, the BBC came to film part of a feature on Rhea Cambridge, who represents We Run The World, a female DJing agency, and co-founder of Lemonade Girlz. She also holds residencies at Bounce and Swingers, as well as having played at many major festivals and for world-famous brands.

What’s makes this even more impressive is that DJing is Rhea’s ‘side hustle’, which she fits in around her day job as a Senior Housing Officer.

Is there no ends to this girl’s talents and passion? We hope not, we’re just excited to be a part of her journey.

Camden Giving Week – raising awareness of poverty and inequality in Camden

Lockside Camden are honoured to be working with Camden Giving to support their work in ending poverty and inequality in London.

· A third of children in Camden live in poverty

· There’s a ten year difference in life expectancy between those in the poorest wards and those in the wealthiest

· Silverline, the national phoneline for lonely older people, receives more calls from Camden than from anywhere in the country

As a business whose sole purpose is to bring people of all backgrounds together, this make for bleak reading.

So we’re very proud to be playing our small part in helping Camden Giving, and some of the projects they fund, work towards fighting these statistics.

Bringing people together

Camden Giving Week runs from 21-27 May and the week sees a whole plethora of exciting activity around the Borough.

Lockside Camden will be creating, with the help of the Camden Giving team, a bespoke cocktail that will sell exclusively throughout the week, with ALL PROFITS going to towards the £20,000 they are hoping to raise.


We will also be hosting a special one-off Quiz Night on Weds 23rd May with all proceeds from entry fees and an exclusive raffle going to Camden Giving. Prizes include a £350 wine tasting experience from Waitrose, a £50 bar tab, loads of Camden Town Brewery goodies and much more. The quiz will start at 8pm with entry submissions from 7pm. Entry is £20 per team, with a maximum of 6 people per team. And the theme will be, of course, all things Camden.

If you want to support Camden Giving and the fantastic work they do, then pop along to Lockside Camden from 21-27 May and buy the Camden Giving Cocktail or why not enter a team into the quiz?

Plant Bass LDN – London’s most exciting Vegan event

Taking place on the first Thursday of every month, Plant Bass LDN will feature kitchen takeovers from the likes of The Green Grill, Club Mexicana, Jakes Vegan Steaks, Olive Sundae, ITIS LDN, V Burger and Little Leaf Food. Running as resident dessert vendor throughout the entire series will be Camden legends Cupcakes and Shhht!

cupcakes and shhht dessert vegan

What sets Plant Bass LDN apart from other vegan events happening around the capital is the combination of top end vegan food, live music, talks and presentations and DJs, staged in Camden’s coolest venue, Lockside Camden.

With a fully vegan beer, wine and cocktail menu specially curated for the events, and supported by Camden Town Brewery, whose entire range is completely vegan, visitors can be sure that every aspect of their night out, whether they’re vegan or not, has been carefully designed for maximum enjoyment.

You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy vegan

For the launch event on the 1st of February, Plant Bass LDN is excited to announce that emerging vegan burger brand The Green Grill will be taking over the kitchen with a bespoke menu for the event. The Green Grill was co-founded by Joel Elster and Robbie Rees, with the aim of providing great tasting, healthy vegan junk food. Nothing is deep-fried and their distinctive burger buns are coloured using only 100% natural ingredients.

Green Grill Burger

Their catchy slogan #brandingbunsnotanimals reflects both Joel and Robbie’s personal vegan journeys. Joel, a seasoned hospitality consultant, got turned onto the vegan lifestyle after working for a well-known high-end steak house. Eventually, the smell of cooking meat forced him to re-evaluate not only the food he ate, but also worked with. Robbie, a semi-professional footballer, ran a successful meat food preparation business, but after being reminded of how precious life is, he went about educating himself and committed to not profiting from the suffering of animals. He gave away his share in the company and dedicated himself to sharing the benefits of a plant-based diet.

First Thursday of every month

6pm – 1am
