Drinks came and the taste was on point! we’ll think of more crazy ideas for the drinks the next time we come here.

Also shout-out to Daniel and Belle for the hospitality! They were fun to talk to! And we like the fact they’re building a community there too. We’ll bring more friends and families to join the community!

Thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon tea experience at Atlas Bar. It was more than just the gilded interiors. Service was warm, impeccable and added to the roaring 20s allure. The afternoon tea set though is a little limited compared to other hotels, but some treats stood out for me. Would gladly return again to get transported to 1920s!
