Mandarin Oriental, Manila opens Martinis

Travel News Asia Tuesday, 24 April 2007

Mandarin Oriental, Manilas fashionable new bar, Martinis, has opened its doors. The smoking bar is the newest Makati hotspot, which showcases stylish interiors, a world-class Canadian jazz chanteuse, and a wide selection of classic cocktails and martinis.

We designed Martinis as a premier bar and meeting place, where customers can listen to light jazz, relax, and enjoy a license to chill, said Helmut Gaisberger, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Manila.

The interiors evoke a contemporary art deco interior theme designed by EC Studios, with rich wood and leather upholstery, dark-hued carpets and polished wood flooring lending a cosy and warm feel. A baby grand piano takes up centre-stage and adds to the bars sophisticated appeal. Other design details include tilted ceiling mirrors reflecting the action of the bartenders, wall alcoves and panels, and striking contemporary art deco chandeliers. Flat screen plasma televisions recessed at the back bar provide active visual elements and alternative entertainment.

The attractively broad classic and contemporary cocktail collection includes perennial favourites such as Singapore Slings, Mojitos and Margaritas, plus of course, an extensive and inventive Martini selection which includes Ginger Martinis, Sake Martinis, Choco-chilli Martinis, Dirty Martinis, and Cosmopolitans. All are complemented by a selection of scrumptious bar snacks, and a diverse selection of premium cigars such as Montecristo, Bolivar and Cohiba.

Martinis bar is open daily from 11 am to 3 am, Monday through Friday; and from 6 pm to 3 am and 12 midnight, on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. A carvery lunch is offered on weekdays, consisting of salad, soup, a carving item from the trolley or catch of the day, and dessert at PHP600+++. Live entertainment starts at 7 pm with piano music, continuing on with Karen Manion and the BluRoom band performing from 8 pm to 2 am.
