Pontoon: Floating Champagne Bar Opens In London


As London’s al fresco venues jostle for position this summer, one company have created a unique location for the city’s revellers to party outdoors.

Situated in St Katherine Docks, a vibrant Marina in the heart of historic London, Pontoon is London’s first ever floating Champagne and seafood bar. Pontoon is the brainchild of pop up restaurants and events company P.U.R.E.

The 5-berth yacht can hold up to 80 guests for private parties and drinks receptions, with luxury brands including Relais & Châteaux, Wine Story and Pommery providing on-board hospitality.

A classic motor yacht built in 1975 by Camper & Nicholsons, Pontoon has been updated with high-end fittings, including a natural wood terrace and luxurious lounge.

Open daily from 9am until midnight, guests can enjoy a drinks menu that includes Pommery Champagne and a diverse range of seafood dishes including oysters, whole crabs, langoustines and scallops, as well as spit roasted meats.

The venue will also play host to weekly wine and seafood tastings, salsa dancing classes, live Jazz music performances and weekend DJ nights.
