Best G&T locationBack to Forum
Anonymous23 Jan 2012
Can anyone suggest good places to go for G&T around the world? I’ve been to a few events in London recently and so far the best has to be at The InterContinental on Park Lane with their new Gin & Jazz nights but there must be others…23 Jan 2012
This I can answer with certainty.
Whilst Mrs S and I do not drink G&T, we have friends that do and they swear blind that they can think of no better place to sip a G&T other than the balcony of our condo in Florida, whilst watching my now 15 year old birdie or par the 17th hole, which we get an uninterpreted view of after the T shot. We have plenty of Jazz music and it gets even better, when our next door neighbor puts an impromptu practice session of his jazz quarter on his balcony as the sun goes down.23 Jan 2012
Royal O Lounge Bangkok ( Thai Airways)
Tall glass full of cubed ice,3 small slices of lime on top ..not lemon,pour in the Bombay until it gets near to the top of the ice and then add the Sweee…..
then listen for the ice being infused ..dee mak krup.
It is of course self service …suits me
then simply…repeat as above..23 Jan 2012
Perhaps odd choice but the best B&T ever was by the pool at the Crowne Plaza St Peters in Rome over a decade ago. So good that when i next go back to the Etenal City i will stay there. It was just perfect.24 Jan 2012
My top bar in the world, including the G&T is Duke’s Bar at Duke’s Hotel at St. James’s.. My weakness is Dry Martini, where it is served essentially “Winston Churchill Style”. That means: “only scare the glass with vermouth!”24 Jan 2012
@martynsinclair I’m green with envy that sounds amazing!
@BeckyBoop I love the OXO Tower!! Good call for my next London adventure although tempted by Bangkok as always (favourite city in the world!)
If any of you find yourselves in Melbourne I can recommend Madame Brussels. Its a lovely secret roof top garden!24 Jan 2012
Anywhere that has Plymouth gin – pref Navy strength – and uses tall glasses plenty of ice, lime and schweppes tonic.
That rules out most of the States sadly as I always seem to get Canada Dry which ironically is too sweet.
The UK is a problem because its never strong enough
Spain or Portugal gets my vote…24 Jan 2012
For great views – New York Bar – atop the Park Hyatt, Tokyo
Most idyllic location – Ku De Ta in Bali
Am booked in for brunch at Arnaud’s New Orleans for Sunday Brunch after the Jazz Festival in early May followed by a visit to the attached French 75 Bar for Sazeracs and Ramos Gin Fizzes and a Cigar from the in house humidor. I’ll report back.24 Jan 2012
Purely for research purposes, I have a glass of tonic in one hand, my arms rested on the balcony of the Cathay Wing lounge in HKG looking at the apron and aircraft movements. It must be a man thing, but it certainly beats going into the office!
Life continues to be just great!!25 Jan 2012
