Fresh, modern and vibrant. The Mint Gun Club in Stoke Newington, London, is a bar like no other with a cocktail offering to match.
There are several menus on offer for both food and drink, although this isn’t strictly a dining venue and the nosh is mostly there to gently supress appetites.
For drinks menus, there are three – Club Aperitif & Cocktails; Teas, Tisane & Softs; and Martini Supplement.
While all three may be self-explanatory, we’re not the sort to leave things be. The aperitif menu is perfect for those seeking an after work, pre-dinner sharpener to get the old appetite going.
Drinks on this menu include the Adonis, made with Athenian vermouth; the Bamboo, made using Tarragon & Coconut Wine; and Burmese No.2m which is made using an orange aperitif and Scotch.
The Tea and Tisane menu features a selection of teas from black, white, green and herbal to tisanes, making it an interesting read – we don’t think we’ve ever seen such a robust selection of tea.
Finally, our favourite, the Martini menu where the serious stuff is. Split into two sections – Tales and Terroir – this is a punchy little selection primed to please those serious about short spirit drinks.
Death of a Maiden is made using Silent Pool Dry Gin; Robin L’Oxley features cold-distilled English Gin; and the Margaux has Bacardi Carta Blanca 1909.
Now for that food. Choose from canapes and skewers, crostini or spreads ‘and stuff’, as well as bowl and plate food. There’s a vast array to choose from.
