Falling for Mermaid: Seasonal installation with HarBar on 6th
Although there’s nothing we love more than a warm summer evening, watching the waves lap up onto our island shores, it’s time to embrace the shifting seasons. So we’ve taken a short journey across the water to collaborate with HarBar on 6th , creating an Autumn-inspired menu and a stunning installation to celebrate crisp mornings, cosy knits and changing colours.
With the expertise of master mixologist, Vitor Hugo Lourenco, the Mermaid range has been crafted into a beautiful menu of seasonal gin & tonics, indulgent and aromatic spritzes and elegant and unforgettable classics, with something to suit every palette. A fellow sustainability enthusiast, Vitor designs his menus carefully, being cautious of each ingredient and how it can be utilised to minimise waste. “In our industry, we can make a difference with simple steps. Squeezed lemons can be used for a cordial. Strawberry leaf for syrup. From old persimmon, a shrub.” It’s his thoughtful approach that leads to unique and creative serves, all while being environmentally conscious.
Take a seat under a cascade of russet and copper leaves, beautifully installed by Twilight Trees, a fellow carbon neutral business, and on the clearest days our island is visible across the waters. And no visit is complete without sampling the accompanying food menu, a collection of comfort cuisine and seasonal delights, best paired with a Mermaid cocktail, of course.
Be sure to book your table at HarBar on 6th, at the Southampton Harbour Hotel before the tides turn again. You can reach out to them on 02381 103888 and share your visit with us using #MermaidSightings and #MyHarbourExperience.
