Very classy bar , had a drink here to sample the Plymouth Gin fruit cup product and relax for a while after taking the Plymouth Gin Distillery tour, very nice but a tad expensive.

We went here after being to the distillery, it had a nice atmosphere and the building itself was beautiful. Nice place to come and have a drink with friends.

I enjoyed a truly superb pink gin at this finest of establishment. A thoroughly "proper" bar to partake in gin. Very professional bar staff, in a museum lounge. A must if in the Barbican.
