Just opened: The Gibson Bar
by Newsdesk - Friday January 8, 2016 2:01 pm
Master mixologist Marian Beke (formally of Nightjar) has opened a new late-night space in Clerkenwell, and in keeping with the graded Edwardian façade, the cocktail menu is inspired by the tastes and flavours of the early 1900s.
Leading the menu is ‘The Gibson’ which is served in an ice-cold stainless steel martini glass. Invented over a hundred years ago, this gin & vermouth speciality has been given a 21st century make-over as Marian Beke and bar manager Rusty Cerven bring it up to date with a dash of pickled sweet-sour flavour. Subtly pickled ingredients are a common sight on The Gibson’s seasonal cocktail list, which is designed like a calendar. Open ‘till late, there’ll also live music nights.
