The décor: An open penthouse lounge with comfy sofas and playful pink lighting that dips down into a spacious, slinky alfresco deck terrace. Check out those fantastic, alternative harbor views. The music: French DJs Patrice Grand and Eric Byron of Drop fame play chill-out tunes until 2am.
The drinks: Alconomics' Peter Kendall has designed a menu with sophisticated cocktails that boldly stand out. Ladies, try a Mitch Martini (Grasovska, crème de peche, passion fruit, apple) or a Forest Sour (Stolichnaya vodka, crème de mure, grapes, lemon, strawberry, maple syrup). Men, go for a Portwood Cobbler (Hennessy VSOP cognac, port, pineapple, lemon) or a short, such as the Bourbon Butternut (Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon, Rosso vermouth, maple syrup, lemon, orange, angostura bitters).
The food: Choose from Southeast Asian satay or Japanese kushiyaki, dig into a mezze platter with tapenade and tomato salsa, or get total oysterization with seasonal mollusks.
