Interesting, creative award winning cocktails that you are not going to see at home. The glassware presentation alone is worth seeing. If you like adventure, this is a place to go, but it you don't like to mix it up or your idea of a cocktail is a daiquiri, then stay home. Excellent service and in an interesting setting. Worth the work to find it.

A simple menu in terms of the promoted selections, but a thoughtful creation of cocktails to match the themes at hand. Comfortable seating is available, with good lighting, ambiance, and mood, but having no air conditioning can make the interior and in particular the mezzanine area extremely hot when its been a sunny summer day outside. Service was very, very efficient, patient, and attentive.

This bar is so good and perfect if you are looking for somewhere different! The doorman showed us to a table where the cocktail menu was explained in full by the waiter and we received table service. We were well looked after all night with drinks being recommended and created for us. Great atmosphere also! Was quite expensive but was great for a treat whilst on holiday! Would definitely go back on our next visit!

This place can be a little hard to find, at least when the signature "red door" is ajar and not visible from the street, but it's well worth a search. It has a fun concept where you look at artist renderings of the cocktails and can choose one without knowing the ingredients, if you're daring. All the cocktails we tried were delicious, with unique ingredients. The bartender/waitress we had was wonderful: really knowledgeable about the drinks (including esoteric ingredients) and just plain pleasant.

Aptly named as you do indeed have to enter via a 'little red door' which forces you to crouch down and makes you feel like Alice entering Wonderland (entirely intentional, I'm sure). Once inside you are greeted with a dimly lit, yet wonderfully opulent bar with lots of low chairs and stools to choose from, including an upstairs area where you can look out over the rest of the bar.

The staff are very friendly and, if it's your first time, happy to explain how the cocktail menu works. You are handed a beautifully printed book, which represents the cocktails. Different artists were asked to sample the drinks and create an image that they felt best represents the taste and experience. You are encouraged to select your drink based on these images, rather than by ingredients (although they are available on pull-out tabs on the menu if you want to cheat) meaning you are more likely to be experimental, rather than falling back on old favourites. We chose two drinks this way and ended up with some of the best cocktails we've ever tried. Each is served in its own unique way, all with their own signature glass (or Japanese geisha head in one case), ice and garnish. It's a unique way to try new drinks and not for the feint-hearted but you really do feel like you are down the rabbit-hole, where anything is possible.

Definitely worth a visit if you are a cocktail connoisseur.
