A fantastic new gin palace has opened on Newport’s High Street, Hogarths, and its Voice’s Vibrant Venue of the month. Formerly Linaker’s Bar, this new premises is set out to be a popular venue for those who love pubs.

When entering the premises you will be transported back to an era when gin consumption was at its peak and the landed gentry started to demand higher quality gins to compensate for the lack of cognac.

Aimed at the more distinguished drinker, who prefers quality over quantity, Hogarths brings a refreshing change to the city of Newport.

Amber Taverns ltd, who bought the building, has a strategic plan to open around 12 outlets in South Wales. The Newport venue is number two, as there is already a Hogarths gin palace in Swansea. There are a total of 120 sites located across England in the North East, North West and Midlands.

At Hogarths you can enjoy all the latest sporting events that Sky and BT Sports has to offer, as well as Racing UK and At the Races – it’s the perfect setting to experience live sport, with numerous large flat screen TVs located throughout the pub, with individual booths with dedicated TVs to accommodate all lovers of sport.

“We have a passion for life here at Hogarths” says manager Steve.
“Our wide range of cocktails, cask and craft beers, wines and spirits, ciders and perry, as well as our extensive choice of more than 100 gins, we aim to appeal to even the most discerning palate.
“Our staff are trusted to deliver perfectly served gins – just the way you like it!
“Why not order one of our bespoke gin trays? Where you can choose from twenty selected gins to build your personalised tray from.

“Each tray will come with mixers and garnishes, as well as details of our recommended perfect serve – feel free to mix and match however you wish, creating new tastes and finding your own perfect serve.

“These trays are great to share with friends, and tables can be booked and drinks pre-ordered in advance – call today and reserve your table.

“As we are fairly new to Newport, we hope that its people will embrace us with open arms and take time out of their busy lives to vote for us in this year’s V Awards – it would make for a great start, establishing us as being one of Newport’s best venues to visit.”

If you haven’t made you way to Hogarths yet, make sure that you do this summer and sample one of their many gins, or if you’re feeling truly adventurous, why not try one of their gin trays and make the perfect drink? Priced from £24.95 per tray.
