London’s New Floating Bar

Moored on the Grand Union Canal near Paddington Station there is a new venue in town.

Darcie & May Green floating bar & restaurant is located on two barges (May Green & Darcie Green) . that have been designed & decorated by pop art legend Sir Peter Blake. Blake is best known for creating the Sergeant Pepper album cover for the Beatles and also designs for Band Aid & Live Aid. He has in the past designed album covers as well for Mod A-listers The Who & Paul Weller.

For those of you interested in paying a visit, the website blurb states the following:

May Green opens from the early hours of the morning (perfectly executed flat whites and banana bread) to the late hours of the evening (buzzing bar with nine local craft beers on tap and live music).

Darcie Green provides the perfect setting for canal side dining, serving Aussie brunch, healthy lunch and relaxing dinners. With an Antipodean-inspired menu, dishes are bold, fresh and comforting.

The two boats share a combined 50 metre upper deck overlooking the Grand Union Canal, perfect for the summer months. Darcie and May are available for both section hire and exclusive hire. For all event enquiries please email

P.S. my latte coffee was great!
