This sleek, light-filled cocktail bar just off King Street is inspired by the Grand Hotels of Europe – and it certainly has a sense of Continental style. The inside is understated and elegant, and there's a heated terrace outside, set aside from the city centre traffic. Go there for expertly-mixed cocktails such as their Twisted Mai Tai and their Twisted Espresso Martini, or explore their growing G&T menu, which is all served as it should be, in the Spanish style Copa de Balon.
