THE OTHER ROOM
A boundarypushing speakeasy is probably the last thing you’d expect to find in a straight-laced hotel like the Marriott, but behind a door that easily blends into the rest of the wall lies The Other Room. Bartending extraordinaire Dario Knox doesn’t believe in labels, so don’t expect to find a bottle of your favourite spirit here. Instead, Knox ages and finishes everything in various casks. Order a flight of whisky, rum, gin or whatever your choice of poison may be and select the one you like best. He’ll then whip up a cocktail with that spirit, tailor-made just for you.
