Crafting Cocktails in Style
With its latest re-launch of the bar and its new concept of cocktails, W XYZ Bar could revolutionize the nightclub experience. The stairs which lead to the bar from the ground-floor lobby reveal the vibrant neon colour lights that line the tiles duplicating the dance floor. The wall is garnished in style with selected objet d’art from local artists. Rather than its modern and fun atmosphere, W XYZ Bar has even more to offer.
The bar dismissed its signature Molecular Cocktails, replacing them with the new concept of Craft Cocktail by neither bartender nor mixologist but craftman. Let alone premade mixes or artificial flavours, W XYZ Bar’s craft cocktail ingredients are all fresh and homemade from the bar’s experienced craftmen. The W XYZ “Do it Yourself” cocktail (B260++) allows guests to pick two fresh ingredients lined up at the bar countertop varied from ginger, orange, cinnamon, chili, lemon glass and more, then let the craftmen do their work. Once it’s done, guests get their special drink exclusively for them.
The bar’s craftmen has recently created the signature Chili Craft Cocktails which represent the taste of the local with different chili and spice levels. The cocktails highlight Spicy Kaffir Lime Bubbles (B280++) imitating the Tom Yam flavour with vodka, kaffir lime leaves, chili syrup, lime juice and soda water. Another based on Thai flavour concoction, Fiery Mangtini (B280++) features golden yellow mango, vanilla infused vodka, chili syrup and lime juice combining the sweet and spicy combos.
Other Signature Craft Cocktails include the Mint Whiskey (B280++) which is made up of mint infused whiskey, lemon juice and cherry syrup giving a strong clove scent of herb and a smooth finish. It looks simple enough, but it’s definitely not a drink just anyone can make. Prepare for a hangover with even more exuberant showdown of the flame with W XYZ Bar’s signature shots, The Daredevil (B180++). The shot consisting of Absinthe, vanilla scented vodka and fresh rosemary would burn anyone who dares to try. Guests may opt for the snack-attack menus which include Margherita Pizza (B250++), Nacho Corn Chips (B150++), Thai Chicken Satay (B150++) and Smoked Salmon Roll (B250++).Catch a real craft experience with the bar’s hottest DJs and live music from local talents with special deals in April such as 50 per cent off for ladies on Thursday or buy 1 get 1 free on Friday.
