Every Wednesday through Saturday, an array of art-inspired cocktails will be available in the hotel’s Café & Bar restaurant. Guests can indulge in specialty cocktails including The Dark Sawhorse, a cocktail made with rye whiskey and sweet vermouth that highlights the “Women and Sawhorses” painting on canvas , or the Royal Blue Isness, made with Citron vodka, blue Curacao and lime juice that call to mind the two exquisite Isness paintings displayed in the hotel’s lobby.
“It was our intention to create a visual presentation that reflects and honors the standards of Mandarin Oriental and its commitment to the sensual experience of refinement and service,” said Bill Lowe. “The artworks comprising this exhibition have been created by a multi-cultural array of artists recognized around the world for their conceptual sophistication and technical mastery.”
