Gin lovers rejoice – there’s something new brewing in the capital, as one of Nicosia’s most popular after work haunts, Silver Star, is taking over the capital’s Phytorio with a pop – up gin garden!

Sponsored by Tanqueray Gin, and kicking off on May 19th, the events will run every Saturday and Sunday until June 10th (including “Kataklysmos” on May 28th). Nestled in the tall palms of the Nicosia Municipal Gardens, Phytorio is the perfect backdrop to this gin centric pop-up bar.



Silver Star will be shaking up cocktails and crafting signature gin & tonics, handmade oven baked pizzas will be rolled out on demand courtesy of Kantina, the fresh summer flavours of soft serve ice cream from Big Softie will keep you chilled, while an array of DJ’s will be on the decks to help you get on down from 4pm until midnight.



For those who want a side of learning with their cocktails, a number of exciting workshops will be held over the course of the weekends, including workshops on ‘the history of gin’ and ‘gin production’, a garland-making workshop, a pop-up bookshop, and more. There will also be arts and crafts to keep the kids entertained.

Every weekend, all sorts of games will be adding to the fun; just let your competitive streak run wild with tipsy croquet, badminton and gin pong. And on Monday May 28th, there will be a massive gin-soaked water fight for the “Kataklysmos” holiday.

Where and when?  Phytorio, Nicosia Municipal Gardens. Every Saturday and Sunday between May 19th and June 10th.
