Overview

gin-palace


Quick Reference

Ornate public-house evolved in Britain in the 1830s, featuring plate- and mirror-glass, a bar, gantry, showy elaborate fittings, and illuminated by gas-flares and lights. Thompson & Fearon's gin-palace, Holborn, London (1829–31), seems to have been among the earliest, and Stephen Geary had a reputation as a designer of the type.

Girouard (1979a);Loudon (1834)
