Gin & Jazz At InterContinental London Park Lane

This Autumn Winter season, the InterContinental London Park Lane is paying homage to the the roaring 20s.

Your Coffee Break were invited to indulge in delicious gin-based cocktails and wonderful music at Gin & Jazz, hosted in London’s fashionable Mayfair area.

Gin & Jazz

Every week, carefully selected artists perform in a tribute to the decadent era of jazz music against the InterContinental hotel’s gorgeous backdrop, which certainly nods to the revelry of days gone by. The selected musicians combine the rawness and talent associated with authentic jazz music. Among them, The Shirt Tail Stompers and Viper’s Dream, two London-based jazz bands, will be performing.

Mayfair, which has long been synonymous with exuberance and fashion, was once noteworthy for its “Gin Craze,” during which the availability of this liquor made it extremely popular.

Inspiring itself from Mayfair’s rich history, the InterContinental London Park Lane chose gin as its bar’s spirit of choice. Consequently, we were able to choose from a range of 35 different types of gin. With an array of masterful combinations such as the specialty Hendricks Gin & Tonic, the Cloudy Moonshine or the Angel Face Martini, the beautifully crafted list was compiled by the hotel’s award-winning team at The Arch Bar.

In addition to showcasing excellent cocktail mixology, the Gin & Jazz events offer savoury meal accompaniments with names paying homage to the 20s. The “Cat’s Meow”, for instance, is composed of sashimi of tuna and lobster maki, among other ingredients. A second sharing platter, the “Hotsy-Totsy” includes buffalo and foie-gras hamburgers as well as crisp fried quid.

With its Gin & Jazz events, the InterContinental London Park Lane seeks to bring to the forefront a subculture that doubtlessly helped define an entire generation. Thanks to the 1920s’ musical and liquid legacies, guests are transported to a different time.
