We’ve just spent the evening on a gin tasting session with Joe from 1932. Amazing venue with the most sublime drinks I have ever had. Joe is amazing company with such a wealth of knowledge on different gins. The perfect mixologist. Would highly recommend!

Cocktails were very good quality. Decor was fantastic. However when it came to paying the bill the bartender continued his conversation with others rather than paying attention to us, which was rude and inattentive and let the experience down overall.More

Luxurious art deco styled venue, friendly service and the best cocktails in Southampton! Great feature having service at the touch of a button (located under the tables). The signature caramel espresso martini is highly recommended! 🍹👌
