The first lounge dedicated to Gin in Italy
Welcome to The Gin Corner, with an emphasis on the word “The” as this is The first lounge dedicated to Gin in Italy. It opened in 2013 in the very central Hotel Adriano on Via di Pallacorda and has been hugely successful ever since. This gin mecca is not only popular with Gin aficionados who can enjoy hundreds brands of Gin but it is also frequented by those who enjoy a good cocktail. The Gin Corner is not just a hotel bar- it is a meeting place for lovers of well-mixed drinks and a good atmosphere. It was founded by Barbara Ricci, owner of the Hotel Adriano Family and is open every evening of the week from 7pm to midnight.
The Gin Corner has more than 100 different kinds of gin from all over the world, all hand picked by head barman Patrick Pistolesi. The cocktail menu is obviously centered around gin: from a Gin & Tonic to a great classic like the Martini and the more common Negroni. And let’s not forget the tonics! Usually they are overlooked, but in this case they are worth mentioning for their high quality, selection of flavors that range from different versions of Schweppes (classic, flavored, pink pepper, cardamom and ginger or Orange and Lavender) and the premium options: two are British, Fever-Tree and Fentimans. The third, 1724, comes from Argentina and gets its name from the altitude of the Andean mountains where the cinchona plant, which is the basis of the recipe, grows.
The Gin Corner is also constantly participates in industry and charity events and is increasingly in demand for private parties in the capital. From birthday parties to garden weddings, The Gin Corner customizes events and offers an original experience, recreating real miniature bars, with specialized bartender and amazing service at your home. For true enthusiasts, by request only, you can contact the Italian brand ambassador of gin.
Finally, the Gin Corner won the best hotel bar at the 2015 Bar Awards, need we say more?
