Named #11 in World’s 50 Best Bars in 2016 by Drinks International as well as featured among the Top 10 Best International Hotel Bars in the 2015 Tales of the Cocktail® Spirited Awards®, Manhattan Bar recalls the Golden Age of fine drinking, giving you a taste of the old New York glamour and sophistication in a modern setting. With more than 300 artisanal spirits and rare liquors lining one wall, an Ingredients Room housing unusual herbs and spices from around the world, and the world’s first in-hotel rickhouse, Manhattan Bar is where you go for classic and forgotten cocktails crafted by passionate mixologists.

The Rickhouse is where you can barrel your very own cask of classic cocktails for a one-of-a-kind celebratory toast at your wedding. One of only a handful of micro-distilleries around the world to offer tasting and bottling sessions, Manhattan Bar launches their unique barrelling programme to let you into the world of barrel-aging, where whiskies and cocktails are aged in custom American oak barrels to harmonise flavours and infuse complex aromas. Your exclusive session will take you through a tour of the Ingredients Room, a mixologist’s playground where you can gather inspiration from curated rarities such as wild cherry bark, shisandra berries, and dandelion root, before the main event. You’ll taste various barrel-aged Manhattans—a mid-19th century blend of whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters—and then bottle your own bespoke barrel. Your cask will join others in the aging racks lining the Rickhouse, each bearing the proud mark of its maker, to await your joyous occasion.

Of course, your marriage calls for more celebratory toasts leading up to the wedding. Manhattan Bar offers luxurious and private settings for a sizzling hen’s night with the ladies, or a gentlemen’s stag party with fellow whiskey aficiondos. Slip away from the energy of the Main Salon into a private party behind plush curtains hiding the bar’s “secret” rooms, where opulent Italian velvets and leather wing-backed chairs welcome you into the golden yesteryear of New York’s finest drinking hour. Reserve the dazzling Rockefeller Room for 16-20 friends with a minimum spend of $2000, or cosy up for an intimate gathering in the Private Salon with 12-14 pax with a minimum spend of $1500. Bigger groups of 30-35 guests can commandeer the Rockefeller Room + Library with a minimum spend of $3500. While events are fully customisable, Manhattan Bar offers private event food and beverage packages to make your night of glamour an easy one to plan. Tailored to each of Manhattan’s function rooms, the packages serve up the bar’s most popular gourmet bar bites, celebratory bottles, and craft cocktails.
