After a highly successful summer season operating private events, corporate charters and the popular Gin Cruises around Poole Harbour, Dorset Queen returns home to Parkstone Bay Marina for the winter as Dorset’s first floating gin bar.
Walk though the gardens of South Deep Café in Parkstone Bay Marina, BH14 8EW and find a secret pontoon leading down to our 1938 vintage motor yacht.
Dorset Queen will remain alongside, in the tranquility of the marina whilst serving up a selection of 20 artisan gins, draught lager, local ale, wines & spirits, as well as food options from our neighbours at South Deep Café.
She has been modified for the winter so that her fully heated saloon and newly enclosed rear deck can comfortably accommodate up to 50 guests.
Prohibition 1938 will be open every Friday & Saturday night throughout November & December, making this a perfect little festive hide away, just 5 minutes away from popular, Ashley Cross.
*Dorset Queen is also exclusively available on Sundays & weekdays throughout the festive period for corporate and private Christmas parties.
‘Prohibition 1938’ is situated on board ‘Dorset Queen’, a vintage motor yacht. With this in mind we ask that all guests take into consideration the fact that they will be required to embark and disembark via a series of steps, therefore please ensure that footwear worn is appropriate for the experience. Whilst the vessel will remain alongside decks may still be wet or slippery. Please also notify the crew if you require any assistance boarding Dorset Queen. Thank You in advance for your cooperation.
