Hot Gin Pop Up Bar on the Roof Terrace

On the 6th December, we are celebrating the beginning of the festive season by hosting a hot gin pop-up bar on the hotel’s rooftop, atop the Cambridge skyline.

Boasting an impressive gin menu of over 30 varieties, guests will be able to indulge in a specially crafted menu of warming gin cocktails, alongside homemade mince pies, whilst enjoying the sight of the beautiful East Anglia sky, and breath-taking views of the city.

Candle-lit lamps, scattered with warmings blankets and cosy cushions, the hot gin bar will be the snuggest way to get into the Christmas spirit.

Inspired by quintessentially festive flavours, the hot gin menu will consist of four signature cocktails and incorporates classic Christmas ingredients and spices, such as cinnamon and cloves. The menu will feature the following warming drinks:

Gin Based Mulled Wine: an adaption of the traditional festive tipple with gin, which is then coupled with the gentle warmth of cloves and lemon slices, and served in a wine glass

GIN OrangEsque: served in a typically British afternoon teacup, this cocktail combines gin with heated orange juice and honey, to help soothe the senses

Hot Gin Toddy: a twist on the classic toddy, consisting of lemon, sugar and gin infused with hot water, and garnished with a cinnamon stick in a martini glass

SIX GIN and Juice: combining the much-loved winterberry, cranberry juice, with gin, served with a garnish of rosemary in a small latte glass

The event can be enjoyed by both guests at the hotel and locals. Each hot gin cocktail is priced at £8.50 and served with a complimentary mince pie. The pop-up will be open from 6:30pm until 7:30pm on the 6th December.
