Boutique Bar
Last month the Boutique Bar was absolutely buzzing! Taking control this month is a bartender who runs a cute little cocktail bar with a lovely roof terrace. He takes pride from sourcing everything he can from the local market; from fresh fruit and berries to herbs and spices. He’s passionate on having the ethos of “Anyone can enjoy a fine beverage; you don’t have to be dressed in top to tails to get a drink!” A bartender that preaches “Never above you, Never below you, Always beside you”.

Bringing forth a specially constructed menu just for Canteen, we welcome Leicester’s very own, from The Attic at the Cookie… Xander Driver. Xander will be making some unbelievable Plant Pot cocktails complete with chocolate biscuit “soil” – more of that coming soon!
