Open throughout the winter months, the Nootropical Garden is part of Rockwell’s Curiosity Club, a series of unique and experiential events for inquisitive guests. It features a food and cocktail menu that uses natural herbs and ingredients to restore and stimulate the cognisance of guests.
The Nootropical Garden will offer curiously-minded guests a truly modern wellness experience, utilising nootropics that support mental health and wellbeing. There are also plant-based dishes available and for individuals going alcohol-free, nootropical cocktails offer a booze-free buzz.
There is Gotu Kola, which is highly regarded as a spiritual herb in Ayurvedic tradition and promotes mental alertness and a sound memory. Lemon Balm and Ashwagandha are known to ease stress, whilst Ginseng, Gingko Bilboa and Guarana have been selected for their ability to invigorate.
The expert team produce all their own syrups, infusions and cordials in house and Rockwell is the only bar in London to source its botanicals from a sustainable underground farm, which grows its produce 33 meters below the streets of Clapham.
The venue is inspired by its location on Spring Gardens, now a street in St. James’s but once a garden space, formed, probably, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth as an addition to the pleasure grounds of Whitehall Palace. Rockwell captures this ethos by continuing to provide a sanctuary for guests to socialise and enjoy themselves. The interiors are also a nod to this heritage, transporting guests to a botanical inspired greenery.
The design blurs the lines of the real and the imagined to create a sensory dream-like world. Exotic murals, capturing the strange and unfamiliar, combine with verdant ferns, large Longfolia Cabana trees and sumptuously upholstered banquettes to create an immersive décor unlike anything else in London.
