To The Moon at The River Club
‘To The Moon at The River Club’ is the autumn/winter terrace installation at The River Club, designed in partnership with Hendrick’s Lunar Gin & Fox Flowers. This exciting collaboration celebrates man’s long fascination with sky travel, the cosmos, and aeronautical endeavours. From the tragic Greek mythological hero Icarus to technicolour kites, hot-air balloons, the birth of airline travel and the awe-inspiring moon landing to humankind’s next quest amongst the stars, our drive to achieve the impossible and discover new horizons continues to grow with time.
Influenced by the opulent style of the early 20th –century and the birth of commercial air travel, the terrace features a rich, jewel-toned colour palette, alongside vintage hot air balloons, model airplanes, antique stargazing tools, moon and star symbols, birdcages and exotic birds in flight.
€1 from each cocktail sold on the ‘To The Moon at The River Club’ Terrace will go to Blackrock Castle Observatory and Dark Skies Cork. Blackrock Castle Observatory is currently working with Dark Skies Europe to raise awareness of light pollution and its effect on nocturnal biodiversity.
