The Lavender Ramos was an unusual highlight: an easy to drink, milky cocktail made with Tanqueray 10, heavy cream, soda and orange flower water. Tasting like calpis and garnished with a sprig of lavender, it brings to mind the Hokkaido seaside in a glass. The Spectre—inspired by James Bond—is a light, quenching pineapple-based tiki drink in a black tropical cup, and is the safe bet for less adventurous palates. If you’re feeling plucky you might want to try the Kill the Kraken—one tiny but deadly hot Kraken rum drink that’s spicy on the tongue with the rounding mouthfeel of anise and fennel syrup, and sweet on the nose with vanilla. You’ll want to sip this one slow.
The view and the chill rooftop vibes upstairs. Enjoy it with a glass of something bubbly and ice cold, paired with the fresh oysters or other decadent bites on offer such as the sea urchin and caviar blinis ($180). Smooth premium shishas made with fresh fruit bowls are also available (from $630). Seafood Room has just introduced “Tunes-day Caviar Nights” every Tuesday from 7pm, offering caviar and champers or Belvedere pairing sets starting from $200.
