Pop in to the pop-up gin bar
The quirky people at Hendrick’s Gin have opened a gin pop-up spot called The Union Bar in Illovo, Joburg. The hang-out serves their spirit in a number of different ways – including a fresh juniper, rose and cucumber variety, as well as a dessert option with caramelised marshmallows. Dress code is “unusually peculiar, uniquely dandy, Edwardian, or purely a presentation of sartorial splendour”, which suggests the vibe of the place will be as out of the box as the idea itself.
Open from Wednesday to Saturday, 6pm to 2am, the venue is only for those over 23, presumably because anyone between the ages of 18 and 22 will not have the proper decorum for this old-fashioned establishment. – Binwe Adebayo The Union Bar is open until July 20 and you
