This September Campari, Italy's iconic red bittersweet aperitif, will host a 10-day residency in King's Cross - 'Campari Creates' - bringing the spirit of Milan's stylish Navigli district, famous for its picturesque canals and fashionable bars, to central London. Running from 15th to 24th September in the Granary Square area of King's Cross, the 'Campari Creates' residency will showcase two of Milan's greatest exports: Campari and creativity. Campari was created in Milan in 1860 and continues to be one of the most popular drinks in the city to this day. The residency will culminate in a Campari partnership with designjunction, a cutting-edge design show which sees over 30,000 design savvy visitors descend on King's Cross between 21st - 24th September. Across the 10-day residency, guests will be able to sip Campari cocktails on the banks of the Regent's Canal, as well as attend a 'Campari Creates' masterclass to learn how to create their own Campari drinks, or a talk by Eley Kishimoto during the designjunction festival (running 21st - 24th September). The centerpiece of the residency will be an installation by Eley Kishimoto commissioned by Campari to adorn the banks of the canal. Tapping into the rising popularity of bitter flavours, the 'Campari Creates' residency will serve a selection of cocktails created by Campari. Guests can sample drinks linked closely to the city of Milan - such as the Milano Torino and the Milanese G&T - alongside some of Campari's most famous serves; including the Negroni and the Americano. The Navigli-inspired residency will be free to attend, and there will be Italian street food on offer to complement the Campari drinks, with authentic Italian snacks. Eley Kishimoto has been commissioned to design a bespoke art installation featuring the iconic Campari logo, which will be on display throughout the residency; continuing Campari's long history of commissioning artists and designers to create advertising and packaging which are true 'works of art'.

During the residency, Campari will also run a series of 'Campari Creates' masterclasses, allowing attendees to get creative whilst sipping one of Campari's signature serves.
