The New City Gas terrace

The terrace of the New City Gas is a large rectangle between 2 walls and covered by a glass roof. We don’t come much for the view, nor the decor and you have to like walkabouts! Thursday nights in the summer season, the terrace of the New City Gas is open from 17:00 to 23:00, attracting a mix of business people and peeps who likes to go out. Sounds like a good place to flirt. The ephemeral kitchen, Matador serves tacos and ceviches for happy hours. The highlight of the place in my opinion? Definitely the cocktails! The signature cocktails Lawrence Picard, renowned mixologist deNectar Consulting + Bar Designsera seem straight inspired from Thailand! For example: The Full Moon with Bacardi, passion fruittea , green tea and kiwi puree or the Breakfast in Bangkok with Bacardi, Bombay, Tom Yum mixture and ginger beer. Friday night, i’s DSTRKT evenings to supply you with the unique underground music of international DJs.
