Strand Palace Hotel: The Gin Palace, Covent Garden372 Strand, London, WC2R 0JJ

Tucked away just off The Strand, The Gin Palace is an elegant cocktail bar, featuring over 30 Gins, 20 Whiskies, an innovative cocktail list and truly original bar food.

Discover this truly original take on afternoon tea with The Gin Palace G & Tea: everything you love from a classic afternoon tea, but with a cheeky gin cocktail twist.

Delicate sandwiches include the classics Egg Mayonnaise with Cress and Cucumber & Cream Cheese, as well as some new flavours with Beetroot Gravadlax with Juniper, and Shredded Chicken with preserved lemon.

Traditional cakes such as Bakewell Tart and Victoria Sponge sit alongside more modern desserts such as a Raspberry and Juniper infused shot and a Chocolate Cup with Vanilla and Mocha mousse. And of course, it wouldn't be afternoon tea without freshly baked Sultana Scones served with Clotted Cream and Strawberry Jam.

Now comes the Gin Twist: this Afternoon Tea is accompanied by your choice from a selection of Exotic Tea & Gin Infused cocktails. Try the 'Williams Apple,' made with Williams Chase Gin mixed with vanilla and apple, or the 'Strand Bloom,' created from Bloom Gin, Fresh Mint Tea and Apple Juice.

With its decor in rich chocolate and orange hues, the mirrored bar reflects the polished oak furnishing and comfy armchairs. Contemporary spotlights illuminate the dining area, whilst bouquet lights spill over metallic vases, adding a touch of old-school glamour.

The Gin Palace in London is a 5-minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station. You'll find one entrance just off The Strand on Exeter St, and another via the main Strand Palace Hotel foyer.
