A new gin-focused cocktail bar has opened in the AC Hotel Sunnyvale Moffett Park.
The aptly named Gin Bar has a collection of more than 150 bottles of the spirit that focuses on unique small-batch producers from around the state and world, according to a recent press release. AC Hotel Sunnyvale Moffett Park opened early last year and shares the property with TETRA Hotel.
The bar features a special menu called the History of Gin, which offers 12 cocktails arranged by the year of their debut from the gimlet in 1867 to the gin basil smash in 2008. Each of these cocktails includes Sipsmith London Dry Gin.
A full menu of wines by the glass and classic cocktails is also available. Guests can dine from the AC Lounge’s tapas menu, which includes items such as tortilla espanola and meatball cazuela with romesco, manchego and toast. During happy hour from 5-7 p.m. daily, a selection of beer, wine and cocktails are half off. Gin Bar is open every day from 5-11 p.m.
The new bar joins AC Kitchen, TETRA’s Nokori Japanese whisky bar, Coffee Manufactory and Adrestia restaurant as the fifth dining destination at the hotel property.
