Journey through art at Gallery Bespoke Cocktail Bar (by Jigger)
The space at Gallery is cozy and classic with a 30-meter long bar, leather interior and brick walls. This bar takes the “gallery” concept to new levels with the harmony between alcohol and art, not only from artworks on the walls or colorful bottles on multi-level shelves but also from nightly DJ sets.
Gallery Bar carries a diverse drink menu from classic and modern cocktails to wine and craft beer, not to mention non-alcoholic options. You can also put in a request for the bartender to get your drink personalized just to your liking.
The main attraction at Gallery Bar has to be their wine and spirits selection distilled in-house from local ingredients, such as the coffee-infused “Arabica Coffee Aged Rum” or the tea-flavored “Earl Grey Tea Anejo Rum”.
