11 June is World Gin Day and we’ve selected a few of our favourite spots in Joburg to enjoy this civilized cocktail. We encourage you to venture beyond the traditional gins and to try one of the craft gins. The bars we’ve selected offer gin cocktails and craft gin – exactly what you want on World Gin Day.

Bottoms up!

Society Eatery

We’re big fans of Society Eatery and simply love their gin cocktails. Using the fynbos infused Inverroche gin, the cocktails bring out the floral tones of each of the gins in the range. Order the lamb ribs or zucchini fries to go with your cocktail!

Foundry Cafe

A popular cocktail and craft beer spot on the Parktown North strip. Enjoy the outside deck for people watching while sipping on your gin cocktail.

Workshop 55

Try something new at Workshopp 55 – yes they charge a cover charge but it’s worth it for the delectable tapas dishes and artisanal gins. We highly recommend that you try The Botanist gin (for our whisky fans, this gin is distilled at the Bruichladdich distillery!) 

Social on Main

Find a spot on the deck at Social on Main and try decide which one of their many G&T’s to try. We suggest that you plan to Uber home as the selection is extensive and there are too many to choose from to pick just one.
