Last week saw the launch of Flûte Bar in the Lebua at State Tower Hotel in Silom, purported to be the world’s highest al fresco Champagne bar.
Perched on the 64th floor of the hotel in The Dome – made famous by its cameo in The Hangover Part II – the open air Flûte Bar has collaborated with Pernod Ricard’s Perrier-Jouët to launch itself into the exclusive experiences market.
The bar boasts a Thailand-exclusive collection of champagnes, including G.H. Mumm Cuvée R. Lalou, G.H. Mumm Grand Cru Brut Selection, Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé, and G.H. Mumm Blanc de Blancs, Mumm de Cramant.
Drinks International report that glasses of vintage in the bar are selling for US$250 per glass and that the aim is to attract a calibre of visitors looking for high value, one-of-a-kind, experiences.
Flûte Bar’s offerings certainly don’t stop at Champagne either; they also offer exclusive-to-The Dome Petrossian Caviar, including Beluga Imperial, Beluga Special Reserve and Ossetra Special Reserve, as well as premium oysters, including Cadoret Perle Noire and Tia Mara.
Meanwhile, a visit to The Cellar will ensure you can personally handpick your cheese plate, artisan breads and Italian fruit preserves to accompany your sparkling beverage.
Deepak Ohri, CEO of Lebua, has said that he would like to continue down the route of drinks exclusivity by introducing single malt scotch whiskies exclusively at some of Lebua’s other drinking and dining outlets.
Exclusive alcohol selections is a new and developing market in Bangkok with plenty of room to grow with the increase of affluent tourists and patrons.
