PS150 Opens Pop-Ups Bars In Malacca, Hokkaido & London
Made possible by YTL Hotels, PS150's global tour is a rare opportunity for the bar's talented team to take their craft further afield.
PS150 is serving limited edition cocktails at 5 luxury properties — The Majestic Malacca, Hilton Niseko Village and The Greenleaf Niseko Village in Japan, and Threadneedles Hotel and The Academy in the United Kingdom — through May 10, 2019.
"With this collaboration between YTL Hotels x PS150, we’re excited to introduce Malaysian flavours, textures and styles. After all, it is very Malaysian to share our love of food — it is the best way to get to know us," said PS150 co-founder Tan Boon Wy.
The Majestic Malacca: Located by a riverbank that teemed during the spice trade of yesteryear, The Majestic Malacca provides a glimpse into a bygone era. Multicultural influences are reflected in its colonial architecture, bespoke services and Kristang cuisine.
Threadneedles: Formerly a Victorian bank, this discreet boutique hotel is crowned by an elegant stained-glass dome — a favourite highlight Instagrammers. Housing a restaurant by celebrated British chef Marco Pierre White, Theadneedles also takes pride in its iconic afternoon tea.
The Academy: The hotel occupies an enviable location in the centre of Bloomsbury, a high-end district in London's West End dating back 240 years. Grassy squares and grand Georgian townhouses make for pleasant strolls around the neighbourhood.
Hilton Niseko Village: Adjacent to the Niseko Gondola that whisks skiers straight to the top of Mount Niseko Annupuri, this luxury hotel is outfitted with outstanding restaurants, a spa, an onsen, a fitness centre, a business centre, meeting rooms, a ballroom and a playground for little 'uns.
The Green Leaf Niseko Village: The brainchild of New York-based design firm Champalimaud Design, which has won awards for its distinctive interiors that reflect their unique settings, The Green Leaf Niseko Village is an all-season destination hotel. Enjoy the great outdoors before letting your hair down at the fireplace, the therapeutic hot springs, or the in-house spa.
A Sneak Peek Of Some Cocktails
Malt & Juniper: Representing a melting pot of cultures or the 'lain-lain' community in Malaysia, this cocktail marries sweet vermouth and dry spice syrup, resulting in a strong but smooth finish.
Lychee No. 3: PS150’s take on the lychee martini, albeit a less sweet version. The number in the name stands for its 3 ingredients: gin, torch ginger and lime. No more, no less.
The Salty Chinaman: A PS150 classic, its moniker is a direct translation of the Cantonese expression ham sap lou, meaning 'horny man.' An apt tribute to the speakeasy, which once housed a brothel.
