A members-only gin parlour and cafe has opened its doors in Northampton

The Parlour in St Giles Street promises a quiet place to appreciate gin and be able to have a conversation.

Visitors will also be able to make their own gins and it will offer group taster sessions.

Su Paterson, the proprietor, said: “I want it to have a really special atmosphere, with characters people can meet.

“There’s a doorbell policy and people will be met by a meeter/greeter who will direct them to the bar.

“I will be the Gin Lady. The Gin Master, who is a real expert, will be able to advise people about what they are drinking.”

Six days a week the building will be the Parisian cuisine-inspired C’est la Vie cafe from 8am to 5pm.

On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm to 11pm it will become The Parlour.

Miss Paterson said: “Gin is a real up-and-coming spirit and I think there’s nothing quite like us in Northampton.”

People will only be allowed into The Parlour if they are a members.

To apply, people have to email theginlady@the-gin-parlour.co.uk or visit The Parlour on Facebook

Su Paterson said “We want to make it almost like a Victorian Gentleman’s club, even down to the traditional closing time.”
