D Bar: Donbei Island
May 11, 2018
The coolest, classiest cocktail bar in town with drinks from all over the world, including the fashionable and once-forbidden absinthe. It’s all very dark, swish and sophisticated: waiters wear white aprons over elegant black dinner suits and hover obediently over smoke-filled tables where the credit card customers have gathered in conference. The most prominent light is a blue glow reflecting from bottles stacked high behind the bar. Every cocktail under the ‘Empire of the Sun’ is here for you to sample, at prices that seem to reflect costs required to courier the stuff. But then again, you’re paying for elegance. Regulars come early to get a seat.
