Hyde Bar and Gin Parlour will be opening on Forster Street opposite An Pucan on April 27th. They’re boasting over 500 different types of gin from around the world making it one of the largest gin collections in Ireland.

Some of them just sound mad. There is a gin called the ‘Unicorn Tears Gin’ which is described as ‘bittersweet’ and has a ‘glittery appearance’. Colour us intrigued.

They’re also going to have a gin bible which will list all the gins by their country of origin and sounds very fancy indeed. The bar will also contain custom built gin lamps, gin vases and an indoor green house.

The nicest thing about the whole place though? There’s a gigantic flower wall which an Irish design team called Third Mind have created. It has 7,500 flowers and looks fabulous.

The bar will be offering more than gin though with loads of cocktails on offer as well as a ‘Big Boozy Brunch’ at the weekends and Japanese beer amongst others for the non-gin lovers out there.

With the weather set to improve over the next little while, now is the perfect time to start sampling the gin. See you in Galway.
