One of the Best Gin Bars in the World Is in... Porto
When it heats up in Porto, Portugal, the last thing you want is a glass of the town’s rich namesake port. That’s why The Gin Club is such a savior. From the mirror-backed bar, you can cool off with one of more than 150 gins and an impressive array of craft tonics. Ask the bartender to guide you through the list, or just zero in on the smooth but powerful Sipsmith Dry English Gin. It may seem a very British thing to do, given the setting, but you’ll be drinking it from a Portuguese balão—a traditional oversize chalice that’s topped off with some chilling liquid nitrogen for a bit of added drama. —Peter Weltman
