5 Romantic places...to drink gin

Valentine’s Day, the perfect time to show your beloved that you love them more than gin - by taking them to the most romantic gin bars in the UK!

However much gin means to you, there’s always that someone that you love [to share a good G&T with] and February is the perfect time to get out and show them how much they mean. Not with flowers or chocolate but with gin, of course! Here are 5 of the most romantic gin bars in the UK.

Lazy Lounge, Leeds

Lazy Lounge is full of big, cosy Chesterfields and soft, atmospheric lighting, perfect for canoodling one of over 300 gins.. sorry, perfect for cuddling up to your beloved whilst perusing their incredible gin selection. An independent bar with classic vintage style, Lazy Lounge has everything from solid, traditional gins to small batch limited edition spirits and delectable cocktails. It’s a must visit! And if your sweetheart would rather drink anything other than gin, well, they’ve got a great range of beers, wines and non-juniper spirits.

London Gin Club (The Star), London

London Gin Club (The Star), London

A real destination for fans of gin, this snug, slightly hidden bar prides itself on showcasing the best of juniper, in the most innovative ways possible! Stacked high with gin bottles, paraphernalia and vintage adverts and images; much of the bar is in the candlelit basement, low key and intimate. London Gin Club @ The Star has an amazing range of over 200 gins, fabulous twists on traditional cocktails and for the indecisive, or those wanting to share their favourite drink with their favourite person, tasting menus and mystery boards are available!

Gin71, Glasgow

Gin71, Glasgow

With the lights down and the music up, an idyllic yet quirky tearoom turns into a beautiful bar with a healthy selection of 71 gins. The combination of an art-deco themed bar and contemporary cocktails, Gin71 serves up the perfect ambience for any couple looking to get to know each other a little better or for the more established couple, looking for a new favourite place. The gins are excellent, the staff are friendly and while the place stays busy, it’s still a very intimate venue; lovebirds can’t help but have a splendid evening.

Potted Pig, Cardiff

Potted Pig, Cardiff

Wales’ number one gin bar is utterly enchanting! Tucked away in what were subterranean, bank vaults, The Potted Pig has brought a burst of life and the wonderful aroma of juniper to Cardiff. With exquisite food (locally sourced), and a great range of gins, properly served and garnished, this is an easygoing yet tasteful restaurant/bar that ticks all the boxes for an amazing date.

Gorilla, Manchester

Gorilla, Manchester

Strictly speaking, Gorilla is a music venue that also has a dedicated Gin Parlour but romance isn’t all about quiet, candlelit dinners and staring lovingly into each other's eyes. Sometimes, a good gin and a dance is the best way to show that you care. That said, Gorilla’s Gin Lounge is a gorgeous jewel of a place, smooth and sleek, giving you the best of both worlds. Their cocktail menu is carefully constructed to showcase the qualities of each gin while creating something complex and flavourful and their G&T’s aren’t half bad. It’s easy to lose an evening with somebody you love here.
