You’ve got your tickets for Gin festival York, you and your gin buddies are ready to go! Here’s how to make sure you have the perfect gin filled weekend.
York has to be one of Britain's most beautiful historical towns. The walled city in north-east England was founded by the ancient Romans. With the 13th-century Gothic cathedral, York Minster and 2 functioning bell towers, not to mention the buzzing old town and glorious riverside bars and cafes, York takes 1st place for a laid-back, informative weekend away.
We know, we know history isn’t everyone's thing. So let’s crack on with what you’re all here to read about. GIN.
York has some of the coolest gin bars on the gin scene. Located in the heart of York you’ll find our first pick ‘Sotano’. The Mediterranean style tapas bar has a huge range of craft gins, beers and ales. Only a 10-minute walk to York Barbican the underground hideaway is the perfect pre-festival snack and drink stop.
Our next stop takes us to ‘The nook’. With a love for everything simple, The Nook go by one simple motto, “good coffee, homemade food, and a well-stocked bar” and that’s exactly what they provide. Grab a few £3 cocktails Monday-Thursday or some weekend G&Ts.
Located in the heart of York in a historic converted church, The Biltmore take inspiration from a trip to New York, where spacious urban chic is the norm. With a healthy selection of the best craft gins, The Biltmore is a go-to for post-festival drinks.
Hidden behind a specialist gin shop you’ll find the weird and wonderful bar ‘Evil Eye’. Specialising in tasty cocktails which are prepared and put together by super friendly staff using only the freshest ingredients. With a huge range to choose from, there's something to suit every palate.
It’s the morning after the night before and your feeling those G&Ts. All you want is a good plate of grub and a pot of fresh coffee. The Scandinavian design inspired Brew & Brownie is the perfect breakfast bistro. Serving a wide variety of your favorite breakfast plates including avo n’ eggs, American loaded pancakes, smoked salmon and of course the hearty English breakfast, Brew & Brownie is a sure fire win to put a spring back to your step.
