The Luxardo Cherry Garden Gin Bar opens on the 22nd August for two months of late Italian summer outdoor drinking.
The bar will serve original cocktails using Italy’s famous Luxardo Limoncello, Sour Cherry Gin and London Dry Gin. The Mediterranean drinks are matched with the atmosphere, with flowers and foliage in abundance in the al fresco setting.
The West Bridgford branch is set to host an opening weekend this bank holiday, featuring cocktail masterclasses by Luxardo global ambassador Gareth ‘G’ Franklin. You will be able to explore the natural botanical flavours of gin, fruit and herbal garnishes and learn from tips on mixing and presentation.
