The Palm court, which is traditionally associated with afternoon tea, was transformed into an opulent gin palace celebrating the glamour of the mid 1800’s.
As a Story newbie, this was my first event, and it did not disappoint. Not only was there some celeb spotting (ahem Nelly Furtado AND Justin Bieber were staying in the hotel; didn’t see Justin, just his groupies outside), the cocktails and jazz were a very enjoyable way to pass the evening.
The bar menu celebrates the history of gin, each cocktail will represent a different stage in the evolution of the classic spirit; from 1690 when gin was first born, to the invention of the first G&T in 1793 and finally arriving at the 21st century with the rise of molecular mixology.
The Gin Palace at The Langham is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights for the next 6 weeks, from 7pm until midnight.
