This summer, Roku Gin, Pantechnicon - a six-storey venue that combines retail with Nordic and Japanese eateries - and London neighbourhood Belgravia have collaborated to create an exceptional Japanese-inspired Gin experience. Open now until 11th September, the Roku Gin Summer Terrace at Pantechnicon is situated in Halkin Arcade on Motcomb Street, Belgravia, and combines a carefully curated menu of Kakigori, Roku shaved-ice gin cocktails, as well as authentic street food dishes, all set against a stunning bar backdrop, inspired by artist Ikko Tanaka.

Kakigori, the drink of the summer season, is traditionally a Japanese shaved ice dessert, but the menu at the Roku Gin Summer Terrace at Pantechnicon delivers it with a difference. The menu offers an eclectic choice of flavoured shaved ice Roku cocktails, underpinned by a selection of the brand’s six signature botanicals that characterise the unique seasonality of Roku gin. Guests can sit, soak up the sunshine and choose from a selection of Kakigori, from Darjeeling & Strawberry and Melon & Matcha to Salted Yuzu, which combines Roku gin, Yuzu Sake, honey and salt.

Pantechnicon’s team of expert chefs have also created a delicious menu of light bites to perfectly pair with the drink selection. This includes a number of traditional Japanese street food items such as octopus Takoyaki, a delicious fried battered snack, Veganyaki, with kimchi and vegan cheese, and Yuzuyaki, sweet cardamom pancake balls with yuzu curd and strawberry. For those wanting to learn more about the menu in practice, the Roku Gin experience at Pantechnicon will also be hosting Takoyaki masterclasses throughout the summer, especially paired with Roku cocktails.

The bar is striking in design, drawing on Japanese artist Ikko Tanaka’s iconic graphic design style, which fuses modernism and tradition; the Gin Terrace incorporates the texture and aesthetic of Ikko’s bold, geometrical style with beautiful wooden finishes, lenticular installations and planting creating a stunning backdrop in which to drink, dine and unwind.

The Roku Gin Summer Terrace at Pantechnicon is open daily until 9am and will be running until 11th September 2022.
