More than just another cocktail bar, the Juliet Rose Bar brings a modern twist to mixology and hotel entertaining.

Beautifully decorated in muted pastel tones with jeweled and brass accents by UK design firm Goddard Littlefair, the Juliet Rose is as stunning as its rose breed moniker. The aptly named bar incorporates greenery and botanical touches everywhere, from the design down to the menus. Surprising at first, the food and beverage menus are split into four categories: woody, herbal, floral and fruity, practical disctinctions that will enable you to create your own pairings between delicious bites and your ideal drink.

With such a unique interior and well-thought-out menu, our expectations for the cocktails were high, and boy did the Juliet Rose Bar mixologists rise to the challenge. The Thyme Travel is an aromatically intense mix of thyme-infused vodka, pink grapefruit and ginger soda that delivers on all flavor profiles. Great starter, but it was the Maple Walnut Old Fashioned that truly blew us away with its woodsy tones. Rye, maple syrup, orange bitters and maple wood smoke combine in harmony, leaving you with a superbly crafted drink that you will not get enough of. Reminiscent of the dark, enchanting forests of our childhood books, even the presentation is rehearsed to perfection. The bartender doesn’t simply hand you the drink: he presents it to you under a glass dome to contain the smoke, with all the allure of a forbidden fruit.

Good blending of flavors is truly an art form, one that the Juliet Rose team has thoroughly deciphered and consistently brings to the table. And there is still so much to sample that one visit won’t be enough. The ever-evolving cocktail preparations, swanky decor and steady stream of stylish patrons will undoubtedly make you want to push those doors again – and you won’t be sorry about it.
