Portal to the Gin Garden
This year Clekenwell Design Festival goes that extra mile to impress and entertain with an opening of a Portal to the Gin Garden. This portal will take you on a journey to discover or re-discover the history, magic, and taste of a wonderful beverage Gin. The portal side of the journey begins with the eponymous modern Portuguese restaurant and wine bar located at 88 St John Street, London EC1M 4EN, http://www.portalrestaurant.com/
There, in a perfect hideaway, with its own narrow passage of which you will find many in this design district of London, we find a marvellous creation named The Gin Garden. Beautifully decorated with traditional and exotic plants, a bar full of crystal jars, colourful syrups and infusions creates a different magical world. The Gin Garden http://www.gingarden.com/, a travelling lab and a temple of inspiration on all things related to Gin.
Portal to the Gin Garden is supported by the Urban Spaces, who kindly organised many exciting workshops relating to Gin and its history. Check their web site for more detail about these events. http://www.urbanspaces.co.uk/urbangarden
When at the garden ask for the signature rhubarb infused Gin drink pictured below and you will discover a new side of both gin and rhubarb.
