This Kensington Street townhouse is filled with 75 gins around the world.
Update, June 8, 2018: This Saturday, June 9, Chippendale's Gin Lane is hosting an all-day happy hour in honour of World Gin Day. The seven-hour happy hour, which will kick off at midday and run through to 7pm, features half-price classic G&Ts — so spiced G&Ts and cucumber G&Ts for only $7. The botanical bar will also be launching its new The Lightbulb Moment cocktail on the day, which is served — no prizes for correct guesses — in a lightbulb.
If you've ever dreamed of one day owning a house full of gin where boutique and international bottles line the walls, this place might help tide you over until it becomes a reality. Barman Grant Collins has taken over one of the 18th century townhouses on Chippendale's Kensington Street and transformed it into a delightfully pokey gin bar.
And, just like your hypthetical palace of booze, it's filled with gins — 75 types, to be precise. These can all be ordered on their own, or mixed into one of 25 on-menu cocktails. Of course, the staff can make you all the classics and, if you're not feeling gin, the back bar stocks vodka, rum, tequila, whisky, beer and wine.
