Until 11 September 2022, The Roku Gin Summer Terrace at Pantechnicon is bringing a taste of Japan’s summer season to Belgravia with a collaboration between Roku, Pantechnicon and London neighbourhood Belgravia. The Roku Terrace at Pantechnicon provides visitors a taste of Japan in Belgravia, one of London’s chicest neighbourhoods.
The star of the show will be the menu of Kakigori – Roku shaved-ice gin cocktails by Head Mixologist Gento Torigata as well as authentic Japanese street food dishes all set against a stunning outdoor bar backdrop, inspired by artist Ikko Tanaka. As well as Kakigori, you can expect whisky highballs, Japanese beers and non-alcoholic Kimino Sparkling options.
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. There will be a 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, which ingredients are harvested at the peak of every season. You 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 small menu of light bites to pair with the drink selection. This will include a number of traditional Japanese street food items such as octopus Takoyaki, Veganyaki with kimchi and vegan cheese, and Yuzuyaki, sweet cardamom pancake balls with yuzu curd and strawberry. The Roku Gin experience at Pantechnicon will also be hosting Takoyaki masterclasses throughout the summer, 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 will incorporate the texture and aesthetic of Ikko’s bold, geometrical style with beautiful wooden finishes, lenticular installations and planting, creating a gorgeous backdrop in which to drink, dine and unwind. The terrace is a private, sun-drenched space adorned with Japanese flora and fauna, ideal for a multitude of celebrations from low key catch ups with friends after work to larger festivities.
