Expect lab-style cocktail creations and no holding back, as GŌNG transforms for its first Star Bartender nights of the year. The Clumsies from Athens are the first hedonistic house-guests from 22 to 25 March at GŌNG, the highest bar in Western Europe, which continues to host world-class pop-up bars from around the world. With several top residencies planned for 2017, its line-up also includes Steve Schneider from Singapore / New York. They will settle in at GŌNG on the 52nd floor of the luxury Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London, serving their signature cocktails alongside Christian Maspes, head bartender and the team at GŌNG.
The Clumsies are named the 9th top bar in The World’s 50 Best Bars, and when they are in town, everyone knows. [They arrive fresh from hosting their own American dream bar project, bringing in six top American bars to their Athens bar earlier in March]. Now, for four nights, fans of adventurous, innovative cocktails, can come and enjoy this energetic London residency by Vasilis Kyritsis and Nikos Bakoulis who adore their trips to the capital. Their own bright, all-day to late-night bar has become an essential destination for intrepid drinkers worldwide. Part of The Clumsies’ house-style venue is an intimate room for ten people, featuring a fireplace, a bookcase, a billiard table and vinyl LPs. At GŌNG, they soar sky-high to set up home with spectacular views across London – and a 52nd floor swimming pool and late-night pool-side bar, that are unique to the high-rise glamour of GŌNG. They will serve several cocktails from their own Genesis menu, plus new creations:
- Infinity (deep, complex)
- #Clumsynegroni (sweet, bitter)
- Metamorphosis (sweet, sour)
- Trilogy (sour, sweet)
- GŌNG Collins (bright, refreshing)
