Ananas Bar & Brasserie has relaunched its cocktail menu with a brand new drinks list designed by taste wizards Rodrigo Vega (in Diageo Reserve World Class Competition’s top 25) and Daniel Mussen (TimeOut’s 2012 Best bartender). Ananas has an impressive array of Champagne on the menu but tonight it’s all about the cocktails! Highlights include the Liberty Bell with more bitter notes and the Limousine for more of an earthly flavour.
The venue itself is a journey into the 1930s with its art deco lamps including quirky ones with pineapple bases. In fact pineapples are a feature at this bar which make sense since Ananas translates the this spiky sweet fruit in English. A jazzy ambiance with tunes like Puttin’ on the Ritz or Beyond the Sea playing in the background. It’s the perfect place to unwind after work on a Friday evening or prepare for a night out in The Rocks. . Ananas Bar is like a portal toward another era where pizzazz and class are taken for granted and it’s only a cocktail away!
Food wise, it only takes one bite of the lusciously refined lobster tacos or the minty brandade canapés to know that Chef Paul McGrath knows his business. And let’s not even start on the oysters- the perfect accompaniment to a glass of Bollinger Spécial Cuvée.
Everything coming from the Brasserie kitchens screams fresh and quality food that should satisfy anyone on the look for a great start to their evening. It actually makes for a great prelude before hitting the restaurant part of Ananas, where French Mediterranean food is said to be brought to yet another level of glamour and taste.
