The London Gin Club
May 11, 2018
In the heart of Soho, The London Gin Club located inside The Star at Night bar has become one of the absolute authorities on gin anywhere in the world, with a visit here becoming a true pilgrimage place for gin lovers in London. The bar started as a small pet project of the gin-loving staff at The Star at Night, but it soon became so popular that the concept ended up taking over the space, and now, technically speaking, the whole venue is known as The London Gin Club. The sign outside still says The Star, though, so it adds a bit of intrigue to finding the London Gin Club. Once inside, you’ll see that the secret is out on this gin joint, as word has traveled far and wide about the range of gins on offer here. From hard-to-find international brands to rare British gems, the painstakingly chosen selection shows that The London Gin Club doesn’t just pour gin, they live it. Offering a wide (to put it mildly) range of varieties including Plymouth, Old Tom, fruit-infused, London Dry, and Genever – gin’s Dutch predecessor – by a rotating roster of brands, the bar astonishes almost all who pass through its doors. Some of the astonishment can lead to difficulties making decisions, and to resolve this, the London Gin Club offers fun tasting menus. Obviously, gin and tonic in varied forms are the most popular cocktail served here, but for those who want to try something slightly different, the bar offers a wide range of classic and creative cocktails.
