GŌNG at The Shard

A new cocktail menu at GŌNG has just launched – and if you need the perfect date night location then you’re going to want to read on.  Eighteen original creations compose a cocktail journey through time.  Each one is inspired by a stage in life, a familiar mood and a captured memory.  From simple and carefree, magical moments, to daring and reckless pleasures; from confident and rich experiences, to memories of timeless treasures and accomplishments.  GŌNG at the five-star Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London, is on level 52 and is the highest bar in Western Europe.

Adventurous combinations of classic spirits and new liqueurs, specialities, vermouths, sherries and even beer, create supremely balanced layers of flavour.

To celebrate the new cocktail menu, visitors can now also enjoy the wonders of space.  On full-moon nights, you can stargaze with a cocktail in hand, using a telescope located in GŌNG.  The first night will be 23 March 2016 [then 22 April, 21 May, a Summer solstice celebration on 20 June, and further dates in the year]. An astro-physicist will be on hand on certain nights to guide you through the mysteries of the sky.
