Announcement: The London Gin Club, reopening September 2021!

By News

After a very tough year and a half, we’re delighted to be sharing some very GOOD NEWS!

We are very excited to have signed a 20 year lease on the iconic Soho institution on Great Chapel Street – The London Gin Club! After founding it in 2012, Julia Forte and Vicky Fisher successfully ran the bar for seven years before sadly being forced to close in 2019, due to severe damage caused by Crossrail. Whilst they remain freeholders, it’s the first time they’ve had tenants in the 88 years of their family owning the building!

Now that the Crossrail damage has been repaired, we are thrilled to announce the grand reopening of The London Gin Club in September 2021, largely as we knew it before. Stay tuned to find out our reopening date soon…
