Good to know - Dr Gimlette will also offer Martini Trolleys, brought to your table and shaken or stirred with a side of theatrics.

Need to know - There is no food on offer - this is strictly a drinks-only venue.

*Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Desmond Gimlette from the British Navy is supposedly behind the invention of the Dr Gimlet when,  in the 1800's he suggested mixing lime with gin to keep scurvy at bay from his sailors.
