Glen Classic Bar

All comments()

If you want a taste of by-gone British high society, then Glen Classic, with its suave waiters and bespoke cocktails is the place to go, just remember to bring ALL your money as this experience does not come cheap! Daika Kanetake, the owner, has spent time in the famous Star Bar in Ginza as well as doing a stint in the land of whiskey; Scotland. He is a master when it comes to mixology and watching him make a cocktail is hypnotising. Every move is part of a performance. I have never seen someone change a cd with such swagger! Glen Bar screams exclusivity, from its hidden location (it is situated off the Face Bar courtyard near Gong Ti Nan Lu) to its limited seat arrangement which requires pre booking. Smart casual dress is emphasised, a perfect opportunity to wear that dress you love but never get a chance to wear, and cocktails are made personalised to you after a friendly conversation with the bartender. The fancy décor, movie score music and bespoke cocktails will have you feeling like a VIP. The best thing about this place is that it’s not intimidating. The bar tenders guide you with a few basic questions and use their extensive knowledge of alcohol to find you the perfect drink, as opposed to making you feel out of place or under pressure.  Finally, the alcohol itself! At the heart of this bar is its passion for good quality alcohol. Cocktails start at around a 100rmb. I went for a fruity concoction with a dash of champagne. This will set you back a whopping 200rmb! They also do whisky taster sets starting at about 200rmb. We tried the whiskey set based on 5 different locations, all with a guided commentary from Daika Kanetake. If you are going all out, the last page of the menu is devoted to cigars (RMB150-300 each) and Kanetaka's suggests pairings of cigars and cocktails.  There is also a limited food menu, starting at about 100rmb. A typical dish would be “maple bacon and pickled cherries.” In conclusion, Glen Classic is not for those on a budget but if your wallet can handle it, the experience is definitely worth the high price tag!
