A new concept in bar culture, Minibar gives customers the chance to raid their very own hotel room minibar, guilt free.

Forty-five glass cases line the left wall of this chic but spare space, each with an assigned number and lit with a funky glow.

As patrons enter, a concierge asks for an ID as a key deposit, and then leads them to the minibar that will be solely at their disposal for the night.

Each case is completely stocked with beer, wine, mixers, and plenty of those 1.5-shot novelty-size whiskey, vodka, and rum bottles.

Minibar is particularly popular with a crowd of easygoing professionals who park themselves at one of the glossy island bars or on the stylish leather banquettes to enjoy a self-made concoction.

Four projectors display looping videos of fireworks, swirling stars, and other planetary visuals, which are nicely coupled with the soft, rhythmic background music.

While being one’s own bartender is clearly the overriding theme, Minibar has also cleverly created an unhurried environment where patrons are free to set their own leisurely pace.

Tip from Adriana:

Before you dive into your personal minibar, be sure to grab glasses, an ice bucket, and tongs from the first shelf on the left. You’ll find a selection of champagne flutes, tumblers, long drink tops, pint glasses, mixing utensils – everything you need to play bartender for the night!

Great concept, too niche I guess
Amster M. Dec 9, 2012
It's a real shame this place didn't take off. I loved the concept, and to be honest, not having a bartender and serving yourself proved to be a better idea than you'd originally think. No waiting for your order, no hassle with paying (until the end), it almost felt like your own private party. It was great. It was super over-priced but great. The DJ music they added during the weekend was cool, too. Nothing too much, just some chill vibes to make it feel more like a laid back lounge -- which it did a great job at being. Just wasn't enough I guess.
