Walk through the Hotel Palace Berlin‘s elegant lobby, past the cosy Lounge Bar, and your journey will take you straight to the new House of Gin. Pass through the glass door and enter a world of groovy swing and jazz melodies, subdued lighting, dark leather seats, small, one-of-a-kind lounge tables and a stunning semi-circular bar. This is the House of Gin – and the name says it all. Though with a menu featuring 150 varieties of gin, it‘s really more like a mansion.
The bar‘s highlight is its extensive gin selection, which ranges from English classics to Indian, Canadian or Belgian
varietals and limited-batch Berlin gins. Hand-written menus present a true “gineology” of all 150 gins on offer. Each gin has its own dedicated page, giving the enthusiast a chance to learn everything about that variety‘s history, origin, manufacturer, production and individual character.
The bar team begins by consulting with their guests to determine their flavour preferences, then prepares their chosen gin creation right before their eyes. Raspberries on ice are briefly flambéed in the glass. With luxurious slowness, gin flows down a lemongrass stalk. True gin lovers even have the option of a tasting menu to guide them
on a personal gin journey. Naturally, the House of Gin also serves up cocktail classics like the Manhattan, Sazerac or Old Fashioned along with other short drinks. Guests who prefer bubbly can choose their perfect glass from a fine champagne menu. Santé!
Opening hours: from 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.
