South China’s first gin bar shakes things up

Ebony, the grill restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental Guangzhou, has just received a facelift and taking centre stage is the restaurant's new bar, JIN at Ebony. Hong Kong-based Ronald Lu and Partners used a converted service station to create the stylish and eye-catching bar. Featuring over 37 different gins, the new bar serves up four house-infused gins including Ginseng and Mandarin Oolong along with a range of cocktails which can be enjoyed indoors or alfresco.

Diners at Ebony can also watch the skilful chefs at work in the newly extended open kitchen or watch waiters finish preparing dishes tableside. New furniture and a reorganised space gives the interior a fresh, new feel while the garden dining area has been fitted with a new barbecue and white parasols.

Menu items include a range of grilled classics including locally sourced prime cuts as well as organic and sustainably-sourced seafood.

 Housed within its own 30sqm glass structure, Ebony is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers two private rooms for smaller, intimate functions with a lush rooftop garden for alfresco affairs.
