Feature Cocktail Bars 44 JAN-FEB 2019 MEETINGS & CONVENTIONS MCMAG-ASIA.COM T ea breaks in the middle of an event are good opportunities for your attendees to mingle. But time is limited, and the break area is often not the most conducive for conversations. It's crowded, noisy and there's hardly any space to sit down for a chat. Besides, some of the best conversations are not had over tea — but alcohol. We are not talking about opening bottle after bottle of whisky or cognac, but a cocktail glass that relaxes, excites and recharges at the same time, while a chill DJ setlist or jazz pianist plays in the background to soothe the senses. That is why as a planner, it is essential to hold an after-event cocktail session where your attendees can network with and bounce ideas o one another in a casual, fun and less pressurising environment. Here, they can lose the jackets, loosen their ties and enjoy an exquisitely made bespoke drink against the backdrop of the night cityscape. A successful cocktail session will no doubt leave a strong impression on your guests, who will be knackered after a full day's programme of talks and workshops, and free booze is never a bad reward for a hard day's work. We take a look at the top hotel bars in Asia with a view that would make an excellent venue for your next cocktail session: CENTARA GRAND & BANGKOK CONVENTION CENTRE AT CENTRALWORLD CRU Champagne Bar Deriving its name from the French word for vineyards recognised for quality, CRU Champagne Bar in Bangkok is designed to give new meaning to the art of drinking champagne in the city.
