THE MARK at Metropolitan at The 9 – Hotel No. 61
On Friday evenings, a vintage gramophone plays in the Ledger bar to signal the start of the weekend. Arriving guests hear the music as it rolls over the balcony into the lobby, inviting them up to join the experience.
There waits a beautiful handmade bottle service cart, with a master mixologist preparing a signature “ceremonial punch” for guests to indulge in.
Cocktails and Context
Alongside the punch bowl sits a silver tray with artisanal sweet and savory chocolate pairings piled high. With a limited supply available, the tray is removed once the bite-size pieces have all been consumed.
As drinks are served and chocolates sampled, stories of the extraordinary history of this hotel are shared. Guests receive the recipe for the punch and the ingredients which have gone into the dishes they’ve devoured.
