38 Lounge Banyan Lounge

Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Bar review -

The Altira Ma­cau is al­ready re­moved from the busy drag of Co­tai and the main penin­sula, but its spa­cious 38th-floor cock­tail lounge of­fers even more of an es­cape. With high ceil­ings, plush fur­ni­ture and a large al fresco ter­race over­look­ing the wa­ter, it’s a com­fort­able place to while away an evening—there’s even a bil­liards ta­ble for a few games in be­tween drinks. On most nights, a live jazz band pro­vides the back­ground mu­sic. Whisky and cognac fans will note that the se­lec­tion is ex­ten­sive. The bar snacks menu is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent from the stan­dard fare, too, with op­tions such as deep-fried Viet­namese spring rolls and ba­calao cro­quettes among the list. With a mod­ern Thai feel, the lounge at the Banyan Tree is a great, cosy spot for a ren­dezvous, whether for a busi­ness meet­ing or a so­cial gath­er­ing. There are af­ter­noon high tea sets and a choice of pas­tries from 3–6pm daily, as well as an ex­ten­sive snack and noo­dles menu. In the mood for drinks? An ex­cel­lent wine list is avail­able, in­clud­ing a broad se­lec­tion by the glass as well as some hard-to-find Thai wines, in ad­di­tion to the clas­sic cock­tails and mock­tails. On our visit, the wait­ress was at­ten­tive and fault­less.
