+ Laguna Lounge Sofitel The Palm Dubai

New Opening: Laguna Lounge, Sofitel the Palm

Alright beach bar lovers, I’ve got a new one for you to try! Just in time for quite a few months of lovely beachside, cocktail sipping weather, Sofitel the Palm has opened Laguna Lounge, a beautiful new venue. It’s French Polynesian-themed, like the hotel as a whole, and takes me right back to memories of the South Pacific. There are plenty of comfy seats… Read More

+ Botanist Shanghai Review

Botanist – Shanghai, China

  When we arrived to take our seat at the bar, Botanist was abuzz with local cocktail connoisseurs checking out what Shanghai’s newest purveyor has to offer. Let me tell you – Shanghai knows a thing or two about cocktails, and takes it’s mixed concoctions very, very seriously.

SixtyFive – New York

When I travel, I love to get high in my new destination as quickly as possible. By high, I mean scaling great heights for a view, not the illegal substance kind! When in NYC, you may find your search for the perfect cityscape selfie comes at a hefty price – both Top of the Rock and the Empire State Building will set you back… Read More

I say unexpectedly – well, first, have you visited Jakarta? It’s a crazy tangle of roads that exist in a constant state of gridlock, un-walkable sidewalks, smog that blocks the sun and metal detectors… Read More

Bar 44 – Grosvenor House, Dubai

Atop the Number 1 tower of Grosvenor house, the 44th floor to be precise (tell me you saw that one coming), lies a well kept Dubai secret.  A double sided venue with a duo of impressively stocked bars, you can take your pick of Marina (smoking) or sunset/beach/The Palm views (non-smoking) – or perhaps even enjoy a drink in both. An extensive cocktail list… Read More

Sky Bar – Bangkok, Thailand

Here’s one you might have seen before – if you’ve seen The Hangover 2 that is. You’re certainly reminded that this venue is film worthy, even before you’ve stepped into the lift to deliver you to this Bangkok famous rooftop bar (they proudly display pull up banners boasting their film set fame). That alone should send off warning bells… Arriving at the Iebua State… Read More
