While prices are on the higher side, you get what you paid for in impeccably crafted drinks and ingenious flavor combinations.

Start off your night with a Fuku Riu, a savory mix of Chita Whisky, sherry liquor, yuzu, pear juice, and maple and almond syrups. This fragrant, Asian-inspired cocktail is chock full of flavors, the citrus from the yuzu and pear juice perfectly balancing the sweetness of the syrups, only to be elevated by the finely selected whisky blend. If you prefer to venture on the slightly more bitter side, opt for the Winnie the Boo-tlegger, a cleverly named mix of Courvoisier, Drambuie, Amaretto, Campari, honey, lemon juice and orange bitters. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, go for the silky and smoky Conquistador Cortes, an addictive blend of Mezcal, triple sec, spicy liqueur, passionfruit puree, lime juice, egg white, orange bitters and sugar syrup.

If you prefer to stay away from intricate cocktails, their whisky and gin list is rather impressive, and you will certainly find something to suit your preference. And to soak it all up, don’t hesitate to try some of the deliciously addictive bar bites that are perfect for sharing.

Equal parts relaxed and refined, the EDG Bar & Lounge is the perfect place to wind down after work or have a few with your friends to before hitting the town for the night. The clever menu and perfectly executed cocktails might just make you keep staying for one more. We know we would.
