MEET YOUR MATES

San Miguel x Somerset House

Back for a third year, San Miguel has opened a pop-up at Somerset House with a river bar and outdoor terrace. Guests can get a taste of Spain at the open-air bar with a glass of the headline beer or a Spanish-themed cocktail. There are also tapas plates, plus a live DJ and saxophonists every week – this Thursday, Ibiza regular Simo Sax will perform.
