June 10 is World Gin Day, but you can try the four different tasting menus of the Gin and Tonic Experience any day of the week. Served in the comfort and luxury of The Terrace Bar, each bespoke tray contains three gins sourced from craft distilleries around London, with attributes ranging from floral to citrus to spicy to smooth. 12 of the most common natural botanicals are featured alongside the gins for you to see, smell and touch. Mixologists prepare the pure gin in a balloon glass, and guests can taste the distiller’s blend before adding a mix of garnishes to enhance the flavor. Tonic water provides the finishing touch. Alternatively, a menu of 21 specialty selected gin and tonic pairings complete with garnishes is available.
If you like to combine jazz with your gin, head to The Terrace Bar on the first and third Wednesday of every month for The Chesterfield’s Gin & Jazz Evenings. This event sees the luxury Mayfair venue transformed into an intimate jazz setting, capturing the elegance of the Art Deco era. Guests are treated to performances by in-house pianist John Hudson, who has been entertaining guests at The Chesterfield Mayfair for 20 years, and his sultry three-piece band . The music is perfectly complemented by a bespoke menu of event-exclusive gin cocktails that took months of experimentation to perfect, and are served with a generous dose of theatre – think dry ice and ingredients as smoky as the music. Cocktails are served with complimentary and seasonally-themed canapés, and the Terrace Bar’s full drinks and bar snack menu is also available.
