This December, D&D's German Gymnasium cafe and bar in London's King's Cross is set to transform its terrace into a magical world of fairy tales in partnership with German airline, Lufthansa, and drinks partners, Monkey 47 gin and Fever-Tree Premium Natural Mixers.
Taking flight on 6th December and running until the end of February 2017, the outdoor space will bring a charming and magical atmosphere to London’s Kings Cross.
Drawing inspiration from the mystical stories told by German story tellers, the Brothers Grimm, The World of Tales terrace will be adorned with winter foliage, twinkling lights, warming throws and decorative details evoking nostalgic visions of eight of their most beloved tales – including Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, The Golden Goose, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Hansel & Gretel.
These eight tales will also be put in motion through German Gymnasium’s own edition of the original 1812 folklore book – recreated in the form of a cocktail list to celebrate its legacy and popularity around the world.
Curated with some of the finest ingredients, the menu will feature bold and flavoursome serves such as Little Red Riding Hood, served in a wolf-adorned cup and made from Monkey 47 Gin, Lillet Blanc, Byrrh and Fever-Tree Spiced Orange Ginger Ale, alongside smoother options such as the Cinderella, served with hand carved ice and made with Lillet Rouge, Rinomato bitter infused coffee beans and Fever-Tree Smoky Ginger Ale.
Those looking for an alternative winter warmer can opt for the likes of the Grimm’s Potion, a hot gin and tonic made from Monkey 47 Gin, Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic, apple juice and blueberries.
Adding to the experience, Executive Chef Bjoern Wassmuth’s menu will focus on popular German winter classics such as Roasted fresh chestnuts and a selection of Germany’s favourite sausages, including Currywurst and Bratwurst turned into hot dogs. In addition, those looking to indulge further in the festivities can also opt for more luxurious options such as oyster and caviar dishes.
A true world of tales, the terrace at German Gymnasium will entrance and beguile guests, transporting them from Kings Cross to the Grimm brothers’ enchanted world – complete with warming cocktails, hearty German fare and a magical ambience.
