The Lacuna Bar
May 11, 2018
A jewel tucked away inside Johannesburg’s magnificent Maslow Hotel (which is itself an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of the city outside), Lacuna Bar is home to a gilded and refined list of cocktails, cigars, and wine. Whether your business at the grand Maslow Hotel is business or simply pleasure, the Lacuna Bar will dutifully act as a gracious host. Lacuna Bar is located on the ground floor and as a result has a great view of the hotel gardens resplendent with water features and greenery. The bar is modern and sleek with boutique light fixtures and marble-style tiling setting the tone. Lacuna specializes in providing a taste of the good life to clients and does so with a line of specialty cocktails created by the staff bartenders. One of these is The Stroll in Lacuna, a standout mix of premium vodka, orange flavored liqueur, lime and cranberry juice served on the rocks. The Green Tea Mojito – a mojito made using green tea infused white rum – is a popular choice as well. It’s not just cocktails that Lacuna impresses with, however, as they carry a wide range of world famous South African wine (you have to try some while you are there, don’t you?) and bottles and bottles of sparkling wine, rosé and champagne along a full complement of high shelf liquors. When the weather is nice, the action spills out on to their terrace and underneath the South African stars.
