Last night we enjoyed the launch of The Gilbert Scott’s new Gin Garden created in collaboration with Hendrick’s Gin. A garden under the arches at George Gilbert Scott’s stunning Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras Station, the space was filled with playful touches including a bathtub bench and Hendrick’s phonebooth/bar. More photos of the new Gin Garden and stunning architecture on the next page.
