EXCLUSIVE: First look inside Cheltenham’s new Gin and Tea Bar

The first photos have been exclusively revealed to SoGlos, showing work inside the new Memsahib Gin and Tea Bar, that’s opening in Cheltenham in October.

People in Cheltenham have been excited to learn today’s news that Memsahib Gin and Tea Bar will open its doors in mid-October 2018, with work well underway, as demonstrated in photos exclusively revealed to SoGlos.

Located on The Promenade in Cheltenham, the bar will serve a fusion of the nation’s favourite drinks alongside food and snacks.

Operated by the team behind the East India Café, Memsahib Gin and Tea Bar will serve 55 gins, sourced from around the world. It also plans to serve up its own distilled gin alongside a range of teas and food from East India Café’s Anglo-Indian menu.

Litu Mohiuddin, co-owner of East India Cafe & the new Memsahib Gin and Tea Bar, said: ‘Everything is coming together and, while we’ve not got a fixed date yet, we know we’ll be ready to open in mid-October.

‘There’s a wealth of Anglo-Indian history in Cheltenham and it’s this that inspired us to open the Memsahib Gin and Tea bar, where we replicate the welcoming home of the wealthy upper-class European women of the Raj (known as memsahibs). These homes had a distinct Anglo-Indian vibe and it’s this we’ll be looking to convey in the bar’s décor and ambience.’
