For world Cucumber Day, this 30th May, Hendrick’s Gin is taking over Dublin’s Café en Seine to host a weekend of theatre and performance art.
The Curious Cucumber Hatchery popup will open its doors for art of the cucumber from 30th May to 3rd June.
The popup will be a combination of interactive theatre and performance art, bringing guests through the life stages of the cucumber and showcasing an appreciation of the vegetable.
Accompanying the popup will be a bespoke menu created by Stephen Gibson, executive head chef at Café en Seine. Diners can enjoy sharing plates of Gibson’s creations, along with Hendrick’s serves created by Cafe en Seine’s team of mixologists.
The residency will also include and giant birdcage within the atrium that patrons can enjoy a Hendrick’s tipple in, a walking bar that will serve a Hendrick’s Gin & tonic to guests as they explore the area, and a device the guests can use to create their own cocktail.
Laura Hallinan, Senior Brand Manager, Hendrick’s Gin, said: “Hendrick’s continues to be at the forefront of the gin revolution in Ireland, so we’re both elated and honoured to partner with one of the country’s most iconic venues. Partnering with Cafe en Seine has allowed us to truly realise our vision, bringing our most stunning and opulent experience yet to our Irish curiosity-seekers. We’re excited to show our appreciation for the cucumber in true Hendrick’s style, while providing our guests with a delightfully odd and unconventional evening like no other.”
