Staying at the top of your game is hard, but The Artesian makes it look easy – service is effortlessly attentive and the energetic vibe goes way beyond the formality often associated with luxury hotel bars. And then there’s the boundary-pushing cocktail list. You can still have a Martini or a beer, but it pays to give the new line-up your full attention. Laid out like a tasting menu, it yields all manner of delights: How Do You Say Banana Daiquiri is a highlight (think banana, rum and citrus with salty caviar), the Magician features a few sparks from concealed paper in a custom-made china cup, while Becherovka (based on Czech herbal bitters) piles on the flavours. Complex mocktails are given equal billing, and you can finish with What Is Agugu – a giant chocolate, chipotle, Tequila and mezcal smack on the lips.
