Al Fresco Dining

Al fresco dining and drinking in the Garden

It’s lovely to eat al fresco. The phrase “Al fresco” is from the Italian, meaning “in the cool air”. The cool air being something the people of our isles embrace, which is not to say we don’t look forward to those warm summer nights and the excitement they bring.

This spring we have already had a few of those lovely warm nights that we crave so much. Nights where you can sit out with a glass of wine and chat with friends as the sun disappears over the horizon.

At The Alex we offer two areas for al fresco dining and drinking, our back garden with its quiet corners and fairy lights and our front terrace with it’s spectacular sunsets.

So please come and enjoy the warm evenings when they come, indulge in some al fresco fun at The Alex.

Meet the Artist – Meathead Exhibtion

lost tribes

Meet the Artist – James Springall – ~Thursday 16th July 7pm onwards. A casual soiree hosted by James.

Meathead (aka James Springall) is a local collage artist based in Crouch End who was recently featured by the San Fransisco Museum of Modern Art

Using a scalpel he dissects images from his vast, carefully curated, collection before piecing them back together again to create lean and tender pieces from the off-cuts.

He revels in the joy that comes from finding things that seem to fit perfectly together. Making something surreal and sometimes humorous from what other people may consider useless and thereby creating new narratives by taking the existing images out of context.

In our digital age of image over saturation, the idea of something being made by hand, not using a digital application, particularly appeals. If two images don’t fit together, there’s no way to resize them as you would on a computer, a practice that demands experimentation and leads to distortion and a new way of looking at things.

Both prints and original artworks are available to purchase from The Alex or directly from James.
