Hit up Penthouse Bar and Grill for casual class.
If your vision of rooftop bars is all B500 cocktails and fancy hors d'oeuvres, then Penthouse Bar + Grill’s latest menus will come as a shock. Alongside the restaurant’s usual line-up of mouthwatering steaks and seafood, the Park Hyatt’s showpiece rooftop bar has launched a new, more casual barbecue menu. Snack on everything from Balinese pork skewers with sambal matah (B260) to Berlin hotdogs (bratwurst, sauerkraut, wholegrain mustard; B370) and beef sliders with comte cheese and pickles (B280). If you prefer seafood, you can indulge in grilled Hokkaido scallops (B220) and barbecue tiger prawns (B100), while those who arrive hungry can go all out with the surf ‘n’ turf box (B1,300), which includes four sliders, four skewers and four tiger prawns.
To wash it all down, the bar’s latest seltzer-based cocktail menu has you covered with refreshing, low-calorie and low-carb creations like the tropical Chummy Chum (rum, coconut syrup, lemon juice, soda), Little Donut (yogurt-infused gin, stevia syrup, apple, soda) and Pookie Bear (goji berry- and strawberry-infused vodka, stevia syrup, soda). The best part? They’re all priced at just B180—you’ll be hard pressed to find a cocktail cheaper than that at most bars, let alone at one of the city’s fanciest rooftops.
