A ‘Gin Portal’ Is About to Open in a London Launderette

It may sound like something from a Doctor Who episode, but a gin portal is really about to open in Lesley’s Launderette in Shoreditch.

The wacky-sounding idea is from the imagination of Hendrick’s Gin who have decided to transform the rather unassuming space into something special.

From four days starting August 15 you can sign up to enter this gin filled parallel universe and drink two free G&Ts in a space that Hendrick’s promise will be a world away from the humdrum reality of a launderette.

London gin experiences are plentiful but this one really does promise to be a fascinating and unique event.

Hendrick’s are well known for bizarre marketing promotions in the past such as creating a flower-filled secret gin lounge in a phonebox.

There are even rumours of the botanical brand creating a glimpse a whole new juniper-tinged time zone through a Bermondsey cash machine some point soon.

Hendricks Portal to the Peculiar is taking place at Lesley’s Launderette from 15 August, 31 New Inn Yard, EC2A 3EY. Time slots can be booked for free here.
