A couple of months ago I was invited to the much-anticipated launch of Neverland London in Fulham. I enjoyed myself so much that I decided to return with a couple of friends, this time on a Friday night so that I could soak up the atmosphere and alcohol without worrying about feeling too sorry for myself at work the next morning…
Neverland is a summer beach pop-up where you can drink and dine alfresco whilst looking out across the River Thames. It opened back in May of this year with a large launch evening to which the likes of Calum Best attended (And he hugged me!) and is open until the beginning of October so you better be quick if you want to make the most of the sun!
Did I mention it’s BYOB (Bring your own booze…but I’m guessing you already knew that) So I came armed with some wine and ready for an entertaining night with my friends and for the chance to feel the sand between my toes, unusual for South West London.
You enter through a pretty walkway covered in flowers and come to a large covered seating area (Lots of Pebbles so heels are probably not the best choice!) Everyone’s pretty chilled and having a good time, this place has a lovely fun-yet-relaxed vibe.There are some larger sofa areas between the covered feasting tables and the sandy beach area (complete with rentable beach huts) this is the area we decided to make home for the evening.
We made a start on our wine but we soon found our eyes wandering towards the cocktail menu (They don’t allow soft drinks so you’re encouraged to pay for them to mix you a cocktail from your poison of choice) we chose a sharing Pornstar Martini which arrived in a sexy large pineapple and tasted soooo good.
Next up was a chance to sample the food. My friend opted for a the Portobello pizza from SLICE which looked incredible and SO cheesy. My other pal and I went for the sausage poutine (Sausage, chips, gravy and cheese raclette) from Le Rac Shack. It was absolutely to die for, I’ve been craving it ever since…but then I suppose I’d do anything for melted cheese.
We continued the evening and it was fantastic, there was a good range and choice of music which was just the right volume to be able to still chat but also have a singalong if you wanted. The only thing I found was that it can be a little chilly as the night goes on so bring some layers (or work on your alcohol jacket). Other than that, you’re destined to have a top evening (til 11pm). We then headed into Fulham afterwards to continue the party!
