Gaucho restaurants and bars in central London know how much you love gin and in light of that are dedicating a whole 7 days to it!
They'll be celebrating the Capital’s love affair with gin over seven days of special events starting on Monday 27th October. These include a chance to mix your own gin botanicals, a gin-paired dinner, a gin and ceviche master class AND a complimentary (free) night.

Our events are a real showcase for famous and new gin brands and are a great way for guests to explore the diversity.”
