Inspired by Rock n’ Roll’s Bohemian past, enjoy our carefully-crafted cocktail list and fables of the most infamous hotel debauchery.

The house bar, Lilith’s Lounge is built to immerse you in a world of unapologetic decadence. Our bespoke cocktail list is inspired by some of the greatest hotel hedonism tales ever recounted.

“In order to understand virtue, we must first acquaint ourselves with vice.” – Marquis de Sade



1.ROCK N’ ROSE

You can’t have crazy stories of Rock n’ Roll excess without including at least one member of Guns N’ Roses. In a hazy high, the band’s guitarist, Slash, once apparently thought The Predator was in his hotel, trying to kill him. 

In his frenzied panic, the guitarist blasted through a glass door at an Arizona golf course, butt-naked and in fear of his life. Making matters worse, he grabbed a hotel maid to use as a “human shield” against the Holywood alien.

INGREDIENTS

  • Tanqueray No. TEN

  • Pomegranate & Rose Syrup

  • Lemon Juice

  • Belsazar Rose

  • Brachetto D’Acqui



2. CHAMPAGNE SUPERNOVA

Columbia Hotel was a regular host to some of the biggest Rock n’ Roll stars, among them ‘Inspiral Carpets’, along with their roadie at the time, Noel Gallagher. His next visit returning to Columbia Hotel with Oasis years on was a little more raucous during the band’s recording of Definitely Maybe.

“By six in the morning, it was just me and Bonehead and Sid left drinking, and for some reason, all the furniture in the bar started getting thrown out of the windows… we’d already packed our bags and walked out.”

The first track Noel wrote for Oasis was called ‘Columbia’ as an ode to the hotel.

INGREDIENTS

  • Ketel One Vodka

  • Champagne Syrup

  • Peach Liqueur

  • Lemon Juice

  • Mint 

  • Champagne



3. SIAMESE SLEEPER

Billy Idol racked up a three week long party held in the penthouse of Thailand’s Oriental Hotel in 1989. 

Over the weeks it grew into a raucous event and Billy was hit with a fee of $149,000 by the Thai establishment for the tallied damages and room fees. 

Idol didn’t agree and protested by refusing to leave the hotel. Management took steep action, having Idol forcibly removed by the army, and finally couriered out unconscious on a stretcher, after being shot with tranquilliser darts by the Thai military. One heck of a party, Bill.

INGREDIENTS

  • Johnnie Walker Black Label - Banana Justino

  • Mozart Chocolate Liqueur

  • PX Sherry
