Gin palace on Portobello

The first Floor Bar is to be turned into a gin emporium. Portobello Gin (currently above the Portobello Star) will be brewing its own gin on the Portobello Road in a huge new still which is being installed at the site. Downstairs a bar called the resting room will serve spirits on tap. Upstairs a Spanish restaurant called Gin Tonica will soak up the brew and on the top floor there will be a private dining room. This is heartening news for the Notting Hill community which has mourned the loss of the First Floor. The distillery, bar and all will open in November. Cheers. portobelloroadgin
