The Dome at lebua has teamed up with Pernod Ricard (Thailand) to unveil Alfresco 64 – A Chivas Bar, perched 800 feet in the air on the 64th floor of the Tower Club at lebua. The highest outdoor whisky bar in the world, it offers connoisseurs the ultimate whisky drinking experience along with stunning views of Bangkok.
To commemorate the fifth anniversary of their partnership, and to celebrate the opening of Alfresco 64, Chivas Regal and lebua Hotels & Resorts have collaborated to create an exclusive blend of whisky: Chivas Exclusive lebua Blend. The first time that Chivas has blended a whisky exclusively for a specific partner: only 96 bottles, each bottle individually numbered. A creation of master blender, Colin Scott, the blend is composed of the finest whisky distilled in 1985 or earlier and laid down in a selection of casks including American oak. The resulting blend was then left to rest in a first-fill Sherry butt. The result: a whisky of superlative quality, with rich fruity notes intermingled with a fantastic sherry character from a single cask.
“For whisky aficionados, Alfresco 64 – A Chivas Bar marries two iconic luxury brands perfectly,” says Deepak Ohri, CEO of lebua Hotels & Resorts, adding, “we will take drinking whisky to a new level of luxury experiences.”
Divided into three parts, the bar finds inspiration in a luxury yacht. The indoor area reminiscent of a cabin features lacquered rosewood flooring and a bar counter that’s all wood, curves and metal lines. The front part of this section takes its design cues from a yacht’s bridge. The outdoor area resembling the prow of a luxury yacht juts out over the side of the building and features comfortable couches and chairs, and a teak flooring. A glass railing all along the edge allows for majestic views of the Chao Phraya River. The third section, the Heritage Room, is created for special events ranging from private parties to whisky tastings. All in all, a contemporary space to enjoy that perfect dram.
