For well-heeled travellers who enjoy a good craft cocktail, The St. Regis Bar is the ideal spot to relax and unwind after a long day. Located on the first floor of the posh hotel, the bar exudes a timeless and elegant feel, outfitted in relaxing earth tones with plush amethyst armchairs as accents. Behind the bar, a bright multicoloured mural adds vibrance and warmth to the space — a St. Regis signature which reflects the locale in each individual hotel. In Macau, Portuguese artist Gil Araujo has created a two-tone Harmony bar mural, depicting the contrasting yet peacefully co-existing cultures of Portugal and China.
Behind the counter, expert bartenders mix and match various house-infused spirits and bitters for nuanced tipples, modernised through the use of smoke guns and liquid nitrogen. Bloody Mary enthusiasts will want to go straight for the bar’s signature Bloody Mary World Collection, a drink that’s been an integral part of the hotel’s history since it was first introduced as the “Red Snapper” at the bar in The St. Regis New York in 1934. At The St. Regis Macao, the signature Bloody Mary is the Maria do Leste (Mary of the East), which infuses traditional Portuguese ingredients into the iconic drink.
For another level of exclusivity, take a seat in The Decanter, where The St. Regis Macao sommeliers store their rarest vintages and handpicked labels; or The Vault, a secluded space for guests to hold private events and enjoy a customised mixology experience. Of course, drinks need to be complemented by plentiful bar snacks — at The St. Regis Bar, you’ll be properly sated with a selection of sashimi, Spanish-style tapas, and even Korean fried chicken.
