EAST is like coming home. Coming home from a hectic day. ‘Cause at EAST it’s time for you. So sit back and have a nice cocktail. Or three.
Thursdays we think are special. Because on Thursday evening your weekend starts with us. And we are not quite fuzzy about that. That’s why we spotlight one cocktail every Thursday evening for only €5!

The Gin Fizz was first mentioned in the book “Jerry Thomas” Bartender’s Guide (1887) and was extremely popular in New Orleans at the beginning of the 20th century. When the recipe was included in the French cookbook “Art Culinaire Français” from 1950 as an aperitif, the cocktail slowly but surely became better known in Europe. Currently it is one of the most popular gin cocktails. And we understand why. Simple, light, and incredibly tasty!
