Lounge Vibe & Apothecary

Anchor & Den

Traditionally a place that sold elixirs and potions – they thought it would be the perfect inspiration for their beverage programme at the hotel. Born out of their love for herbs and spices, these magical ingredients are the foundation for all their handcrafted holistic cocktails and drinks. Their talented mixologists use homemade syrups, infused waters and dehydrated fruits to create their unique botanical blends. But besides their delicious concoctions, people are drawn to the intimate atmosphere of their bar. Surrounded by beautiful and modern décor, it also exudes a casual and welcoming vibe.
