Gin Bar using local gins, whisky and beers
One of Kirkwall’s original properties within a conservation area on Shore Street has been brought back to life as ‘The Standing Room’ Gin Bar. The Standing Room Gin Bar offers more than 150 different Gins from around the globe including award winning local gins from the Deerness Distillery, Kirkjuvagr Orkney Gin and the Orkney Gin Company.
Also on offer is a selection of local beer from Swannay Brewery, local whisky from Scapa and Highland Park and good quality white and red wine for you to enjoy.
The Standing Room may qualify to be one of the smallest Gin Bars in the world. It’s cosy, quirky and quaint with a capacity for only 11 customers inside, with a great atmosphere, ‘what it may lack in physical space is made up by a unique experience’.
The friendly professional staff who work in front of the bar will suggest and prepare a drink to your own taste, keep an eye on social media to see what’s new and what’s the ‘Gin of the Week’.
There’s an outside courtyard area where you can enjoy a drink in a sheltered garden with comfortable seating and patio heaters, where specially selected herbs are grown for use as garnish within our gins.
The Standing Room Gin Bar is both child and dog friendly throughout.
