NileGuide Expert tip:
The al fresco venue, serving the delectable tapas menu of traditional specialties
An al fresco venue, the fifth floor garden lounge doubles up as a lush outdoor space to unwind in style. Lotus-shaped open fires, running waterways and private cabanas create an exclusive haven in the city.
Sophisticated molecular cocktails compliment gourmet finger food at the stunning outdoor garden lounge, which has been designed as an oasis in the city, complete with frangipani trees, bamboo, green walls and brushed steel, lotus-shaped fire pods that sit atop soothing running water ways that surround the space.
One particular dish, Fennel Apple popcorn is created from fennel-infused Swedish vodka with fresh apple and ginger, charged with C02 and sprayed onto liquid nitrogen, producing alcoholic popcorn – served with Grey Goose lychee martini on the side.
Liquid nitrogen also boosts a stunning version of Vodka & Lime, while an infusion of Hennessy VSOP powers a unique Champagne Cocktail. Royal Mojito is a blend of rum and mint jelly, taking the Cuban favourite to a new level, and Espresso Martini is an eclectic blend of vanilla vodka, coffee bean-infused port, coffee liqueur and freshly-brewed espresso, brought to a climax with Galliano and Grand Marnier foam.
Iced red wine with coffee bean-infused port creates a sophisticated Jellified Wine, served with a martini of aromatic sake, fresh lychee, fresh lemon juice and sauvignon blanc. Tapas dishes served at 'Vibes' include mini Wagyu & foie gras burgers, oyster shooters in gazpacho and prawn rolls with basil and Serrano ham.
