“I still get up every morning thinking that I have the best job in the world,” says head bartender Rimantas Janlauskas at the plush Dorsett Shepherds Bush hotel.

His enthusiasm for his job is just one of the things that makes the new Jin bar at the luxury London hotel special. Taking its name from the Chinese word for gold, Jin bar is a stylish, rich and sumptuous space, boasting warm interiors and a mouth-watering drinks menu.

All of Jin’s signature cocktails offer exciting and unusual combinations of flavours. Rimantas’ personal favourite is the Montecristo Daiquiri. A twist on the classic favourite, this drink combines vanilla syrup, lime juice and cigar-infused white rum, offering punters a tantalising treat for the taste buds.

Plush furnishings and a welcoming aura make the Jin bar a great place for after-work cocktails or a pre-dinner drink. The high glass ceiling creates a dramatic setting, and the sleek design of the bar oozes modern style.

For those who prefer the classics, enjoy a refreshing mojito or a perfectly blended Manhattan. The impressive selection of champagnes and sparkling wines is another popular option, with a luxurious vintage Tattinger from 2006 and a Mosaique Rosé.

Rimantas’ career in hospitality began in 2005 in his native Lithuainia, where he completed a stint at the Bacardi cocktail bartender academy to become head bartender in one of Vilnius’ finest hotels. After two years, the wider world beckoned and Rimantas moved to London, where he is now the head bartender at Dorsett’s Jin Bar, and concocting delicious cocktails.

The luxury London hotel recently unveiled its Pavilion Spa boasting a glass ceiling too.
