The Ritz Bar & Lounge celebrated its second anniversary with a glamorous party last Friday featuring artfully crafted cocktails, groovy music, and a coterie of elegantly turned-out guests.
The hotel bar at The Portman Ritz-Carlton welcomed guest bartender Arnd Henning Heissen from The Curtain Club at the Ritz-Carlton, Berlin that evening. Known for incorporating perfumery techniques in his drinks, Heissen created six cocktails, each in their own unique glassware designed to enhance their flavor profile.
Alongside Heissen was The Ritz Bar & Lounge’s head bartender Jackael He. His cocktails featured unique Chinese influences and fresh ingredients, notably the Pineapple Butter Beer, a summery drink with a velvety finish that is modeled on the butter beer from the Harry Potter series.
Throughout the night, resident DJ Naomi provided the beats, spinning scintillating tunes that has led to her being known as Asia’s leading female DJ.
