Drawing Room Bar & Lounge at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand

The vibe

Sleek, chic, and sophisticated is the best way to sum up Drawing Room Bar & Lounge. Located just past the lobby at the iconic Shelborne Wyndham Grand, it’s a perfect spot to enjoy some low-key luxury after work, or crank up the pre-party on weekend nights. Wooden shelves stacked with bottles and mixology curiosities soar sky high behind the bar, while the lounge — a cozy nook lined with bookshelves and furnished with opulent leather couches — offers an intimate alternative seating area.

Something to sip

For those looking to sip on some liquid opulence, opt for the Drawing Room’s Pineapples in Champagne. Part of their champagne-based summer cocktail selections, it combines fresh pineapple, St. Augustine Pure Cane Vodka, currant syrup, and prosecco for a creation that’s light, sweet and effervescent.


Other sips

Every cocktail at Drawing Room aims to offer the right combination of creativity and classic balance. The Talking Melon is a fan favorite, inspired by a children’s book and made with house melon liqueur, ripe honeydew, fresh mint and JP Chenet French sparkling. Gin fans should opt for The Bramble Bush, made with The Botanist Scottish Gin, fresh raspberry, currant, fresh lemon and rosemary. Cultura del Mezcal, on the other hand, combines sweetness and smoke, mixing Vida Mezcal, elderflower, fresh citrus, thyme, and basil kumquat foam.
