London’s Holborn hosts the stunning copper-topped Holborn Dining Room, the city’s largest Gin Bar. With over 400 varieties of gin and 27 tonics distilled from all over the world, The Gin Bar serves a selection of both new and much loved classics amidst its classy Martin Brudnizki-designed interior, that’ll be sure to satisfy even the most ardent gin connoisseur.
Not forgetting the brasserie’s own signature, made in-house, ‘secret’ tonic delight, a dizzying 14,035 possible gin and tonic pairings are available for you to work your way through with the option to order alongside the 160-seat restaurant’s à la carte food menu; head chef Calum Franklin’s mighty Cumbrian Spring Lamb Feast included. Opt for a Finnish gin with an uplifting square root Artemisia tonic, or a finer British blend infused with cherry blossom and exotic yuzu citrus. 100 of the gins being served at The Gin Bar will be UK distilled; specials including the rare Taplows Old London 1950s Dry Gin. And for those not seeking a gin in hand, classic cocktails, spirits, wines and craft beers are of course available to order.
Reminiscent of a French brasserie but with a complete British menu, the Holborn Dining Room merges the best of Parisian and London culture, echoed by an interior graced with grandly fitted mirrors and red leather seating. Perfect for London’s sunnier days, the restaurant has also become popular for its year-round garden terrace, designed by award winning Italian landscape designer Luciano Giubbilei. The Terrace invites you to sit back and relax amidst its decadent display of flowers and beautifully reflects the flavours and ingredients from its seasonal inspired menu.
No longer deemed as the mother’s ruin that haunted eighteenth century London, the G&T has arguably turned into one of Britain’s favourite drinks and The Gin Bar celebrates that, in the classiest of ways. Come and witness the mastery of G&T making in a high glamour affair just a stone’s throw away from Covent Garden, you won’t regret it.
