Silver Spirit's stylish lobby bar has quickly become a favourite gathering place where guests can drop in for a drink and good conversation. Its well-stocked bar serves as a beacon for cocktail enthusiasts in search of the latest designer martini or vintage drink.
Presiding over the mixing and shaking, guests will often find Rex Reyes. In the tradition of all great bartenders, Rex is known for giving helpful advice … and occasionally sharing recipes.
