After a long day or week, sometimes you just need a place where you can really unwind. In this fast-paced city’s buzzing bar scene, such places can be hard to find. But The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore’s lobby bar Chihuly Lounge is an escape from time, ideal to enjoy great cocktails and a precious relaxing moment.
The monumental mother-of-pearl ceiling bathes the space in natural light. The stunning blown-glass sculptures that overlook the lounge bar are by famous American artist Dale Chihuly, whom the bar is named after. During the day, they glisten in the sunlight. Come nightfall, they light up to create the most dreamy, ethereal effect. Comfortable armchairs, plush sofas and warm earthy tones complete the calm, relaxed atmosphere.
Chihuly Lounge is the place to come for a chill, after work drink that will slowly take you into the evening, when you can enjoy live music performances on most days. The drinks menu features perfectly made classic cocktails, champagne cocktails, and a quality whisky selection. But the stars of the show are the award-winning coffee cocktails, created by Chihuly Lounge’s expert resident mixologists. Coffee beans from Ethiopia, Myanmar, Colombia and Tanzania are used to craft cocktails with a caffeinated kick that will leave you energized and happily buzzed – the Espresso Martiki, Cold Brew Highball and Coffee Spritz are classic must-haves. But don’t hesitate to try some of the more creative options on the signature cocktails menu, such as End Of The Day, with Monkey 47 gin, green chartreuse, homemade pineapple and lemongrass syrup, and fresh lime juice – a definite favorite of ours.
Food-wise, Chihuly Lounge offers delicious bar bites from 12PM to 11PM, but we highly recommend that you come earlier in the day to check out the lavish Weekday 8-course Afternoon Tea or Weekend Afternoon Tea Buffet the place is reputed for. Two truly indulgent experiences, seamlessly fusing Asian and Western delicacies and tea time classics made with the highest quality ingredients.
