Gin cocktails at The Blackbird's outdoor bar

Gin cocktails at The Blackbird outdoor bar

1 Min

Could this be the city’s best-kept secret? We’re already fans of The Blackbird in Tollcross but it’s the bit out back that we’ve fallen in lust with this summer. In a collaboration with Bombay Sapphire gin, the outdoor bar, now under its new name, The Gin Hut, is serving up a special menu of gin cocktails and drinks inspired by Indian summers (we’re hopeful too). Mango and Cardamom fizz? Don’t mind if we do. Whilst you sip, be sure to check out the handsome murals, drawn freehand by graffiti artist and illustrator Mr Doodle, and a nod to the summer of gin collaboration in his own unique way. Open seven days a week from 10am till 10pm.
