An Púcán Gin & Tonic Garden

An Púcán Gin & Tonic Garden

A huge thank you to Third Mind Design for the complete redesign of our #Garden. It was completely transformed in Summer 2018 and is now possibly one of the Best Gardens in Galway to while away a sunny afternoon.


Here’s a write up from the designers themselves on the whole process;

An Púcán is arguably one of Irelandʼs best bars. They approached us to transform their beer garden into a ‘Fever Tree Tonicʼ and ‘Bombay Ginʼ inspired garden. The theme of the garden is ‘All is not what it seemsʼ and this was achieved through a number of design elements within the garden, from the steel forest through to the completely bespoke gin & tonic tables.

The colour palette of the garden is a nod to the two brands; blue for Bombay Gin and yellow for Fever Tree Tonic.

The permanent counters encase bottles of both Bombay and Fever Tree and float behind a metal cage. The countertops are zinc clad with branded elements etched onto each one. The steel forest is comprised of 3.9 metre high pillars with branch style cut outs and are up-lit from the inside.

The artificial trees have LED cherry blossoms to create soft lighting in contrast to the stark steel.

The word ‘GALWAYʼ is hung on the wall in large yellow lettering and is up-lit creating an Instagram worthy memory.

The gin & tonic tables show a number of flavour combinations encased in a resin tabletop.

The furniture is made from a combination of steel and wood and sits nicely alongside the other more colourful elements in the garden. The words ‘Gin & Tonicʼ are hand drawn and hand painted onto the ground in the Bombay blue.
