The summer has proved to be an exciting venture back outdoors, enjoying city sights and fresh air. We’re all indulging in warm sunshine and weekends away, so why not make your next trip extra special, with an evening out at Bateaux London. Ideal for hosting birthdays, anniversary dinners, family reunions and hen-dos, Bateaux has it all. Expect to dine upon a stunning riverboat, set upon the backdrop of the most exquisite sights in London. You’ll drift up the Thames, with good wine and good company – there’s so much to look forward to, with Bateaux.
Cocktails and wine are truly one of the best ways to enjoy a classy summer celebration on the Thames. Bateaux prides itself on its diverse selection of Gins and Whiskies, offering one of the biggest ranges. Why not try a delicious Rum Bramble, made with Stolichnaya, British Cassis, Ginger Beer, Blackcurrants, Sugar Syrup and Lime Juice? The Floridita cocktail is the perfect summer treat, made with Don Q Cristal Rum, Peach Purée, Basil, Sugar Syrup and Soda.
If sweet isn’t your style check out Tom’s Ride, one of many cocktail recipes created as a tribute to the Dogget’s Coat and Barge – the oldest rowing race in the world. The cocktail contains a delicious mix of Quiquiriqui Mezcal, Maraschino, Camden Hells Lager, Pineapple Shrub and Lime Juice. Each cocktail on the boating menu is made with the rich history of the races in mind, each with their own fascinating back story. Tom’s Ride is based on Thomas Dogget, an Irish actor who initiated the race, and how he relied on the Thames watermen, the equivalent of the modern taxi driver, to travel from his Chelsea home to his workplace at the Drury Lane Theatre. This drink celebrates a boating legend.
When it comes to spirits, Bateaux offers a delightful range, so there’s something for everyone. From Japanese Whisky to Sipsmith’s Gin, you’re sure to be left smiling.
After drinks, you’ll be able to tuck into an exquisite selection of food, as our Platinum package offers the ultimate dining experience. This dining option provides ultimate luxury, as you’ll get to enjoy a 5-course a-la-carte menu, whilst floating past majestic architecture and iconic buildings. With free-flowing wine, and live entertainment, you’ll experience an opulent evening of magic and music.
Proud to be Sustainable
Bateaux London is proud of its focus on sustainable food. We’re driven by food provenance: proud to work with local suppliers and only cooking seasonal produce. Not only does this help reduce our environmental impact, but it also means that your dish will be packed with full, ripe flavour. Our Lamb is sourced from a Dorset farm, and you can see our kitchen aboard your boat; we always know where your food has come from. Alongside our regular menu, we offer a vegetarian alternative, so there’s something for everyone. Our dedicated culinary team update the menu four times per year, in order to offer the best produce and ultimate flavours.
There’s no better way to soak in the summer atmosphere of the city than with a drink in hand, on the rooftop terrace of one of our riverboats in London. You’ll indulge in suave music and entertainment, whilst day turns to night, and the city comes alight.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Pier, where you’ll be stunned by the views of the river, or aboard one of our riverboats, where you’ll cruise softly down the Thames. Enjoy a sultry summer night with Bateaux London, as you’ll make memories that last a lifetime. Whether wedding celebration, anniversary, baby shower or birthday, we’ll help you make life’s most magical moments last.
