Its not exactly a Beer Friday. As I scan the horizon for a glimmer of spring I have been searching a cocktail that will infuse me with the resolve to make it through another 2 months of winter. Gamsei in Munich, Germany has created their own brand of cocktails. Focused on foraged ingredients, herbs, and a timeless presentation. They have taken this unique approach far further than the glass. To design their bar, which looks far more like the lab of a farmer turned scientist, they commissioned Buero Wagner. The resulting space is both stark and comfortable through a combination of a limited materials palette, warm natural woods, and a utilitarian layout. Another unique quality of Gamsei’s space is how they have located the bar tenders in the center of the space and instead of tucking them in behind a bar drinks are prepared on a center island. This helps to add a familiarity and comfort that is rarely present at most mixology driven bars.
