The Mayor of Warwick declared the town centre’s newest business officially open to customers on Thursday.

The ribbon cutting ceremony by Councillor Terry Morris marked the official launch of That Gin & Cocktail Bar in Swan Street, run by Stratford-based entrepreneur Steve Bazell.

On previous nights Steve had invited local businesses to enjoy a sneak peek before customers were welcomed through the doors for the first time.

He said: “The first week of soft opening has been extremely positive and we are fully booked this weekend. As with any new venture, we are learning rapidly and trying to implement changes as we go. Customers have been amazing and incredibly supportive.

“We’re so happy to be in Warwick and look forward to meeting lots of new people over the coming weeks and months, and of course, welcome some of them back.”.

Drinkers can select from UK Best Sellers, Local Gins, International Gins and Gins with a story as well as the bar’s own infused flavoured gins.

Many local distillers are among over 100 different gins to be stocked at the bar, where there will be the opportunity to showcase their local provenance.

As well as gin, visitors can select from a range of cocktails, wines and spirits, including five different types of prosecco. And drivers and under 18s can also get into the ‘spirit’ with alcohol-free gins. And there’s even the option of bottling your new-found favourite gin to take home.

From Friday 21st May, a food menu is introduced, with deli board options, afternoon teas plus a range of homemade cheesecakes to choose from – including G&T flavour!

That Gin & Cocktail Bar opens 4-11pm on Wednesday and Thursday; 11.30-midnight on Friday and Saturday; and 11am-7pm on Sunday.
