Here to finally address your thirst—ADCB, opening to the public on Friday night in conjunction with the unveiling of the newly redesigned Mondrian Hotel.
Upon entering the finally un-scaffolded building, you'll likely be distracted by a holy cross-shaped table in the lobby…but as far as sins go, you came for some leisurely gluttony (and maybe a little lust), which can be found behind the curtain to the left. Duck into a white loveseat against the wall if you're on a low-key date, but the long orange couch curving down the center of the narrow space works best to find one.
If you also want some between-drinks food, you'll find a shareable menu that recalls Asia de Cuba's fusiony-ness (ADCB stands for Asia De Cuba Bar). And if things go really well, you can have your Surf & Turf Sliders and Lemongrass-Lychee Margaritas delivered to your room upstairs. Among the improvements up there: mirrors that swivel all the way around to reveal a flat-screen on the other side.
Nothing like a little entertainment to go with your post-drinks drinks.
