At-home parties are a bit of a rarity in New York. Blame it on the reasons you will—abundant restaurant choices, seasoned mixologists, fierce dance floors—but thanks to one recent (and might we say genius) collaboration, lack of apartment bar space can no longer be one of them.
Enter the Gin Wheel, the brainchild of Bombay Sapphire EAST and design firm AvroKO (LAVO, Beauty & Essex, Saxon & Parole), a spherical closet for the bar. Inspired by the “Lazy Susan” turntable, the portable, hand-crafted unit spins on a brushed stainless steel plate and opens up to reveal sleek and hidden alcoves that house everything one needs to make the perfect at-home cocktail: garnishes, ice, high-quality bar tools, glassware, removable cutting boards, coasters and custom made aluminum tongs (that, of course, double as a locking mechanism).
Eye-catching, compact and functional, the Bombay Sapphire EAST Gin Wheel could be the ideal asset for the New York at-home entertainer, doing for the bar what the Murphy Bed has done for sleeping quarters. Unveil its layers at the first audible door buzz, and conceal its mixology prowess when not in use—which, we’re guessing, will never happen.
You can purchase your gin wheel here for $500.
