A hot air balloon cocktail bar? Yes please! There’s one opening at Belvoir Castle and they’re throwing a summer party to mark its opening on Saturday 15 June.

A ‘Great Summer Party’ will take over the Engine Yard area at Belvoir Castle with a day packed full of entertainment for all the family to mark the official opening of The Balloon Bar, which is the latest addition to the £3m shopping village.

The fun will start at 10am with live music, children’s entertainers including balloon artists, a traditional Punch & Judy show, old-school games and lots more for all the family to enjoy.

The brand new Balloon Bar will offer hand-crafted cocktails and mocktails, specifically created for the new venue by the resident mixologist and inspired by the Belvoir gardens, along with delicious tapas to enjoy within relaxed and intimate surroundings.

Choose from cocktails inspired by the hot air balloon theme such as ‘Up, Up and Away’ and ‘Around the World’ or enjoy a ‘Japanese Blossom’ or ‘Duchess’s Garden’ inspired by the castle’s stunning gardens.

The ‘Great Summer Party’ at Belvoir’s Engine Yard runs from 10am on Saturday 15 June. Find out more and check out the full cocktail menu on The Balloon Bar website.
