Sunset at Holiday Inn's Oz Bar

Nothing quite like catching the sunset with a cool cocktail. At Oz Bar, you get two cocktails for the price one at the roof deck of Holiday Inn & Suites Makati while watching the sun slowly set behind the Makati skyline...  

Holiday Inn & Suites Makati recently launched a new two-for-one promotion for its signature cocktails at Citron Lobby and Oz Bar to introduce its new drink and bar snack menu, dubbed as the BAR150. All your favorite cocktails, paired with some seriously good bar snacks, while catching the sunset at the roof deck. Now, that sounds like a pretty good deal to me...

Holiday Inn & Suites Makati's Oz Bar is located at the property's highest floor, the roof deck, offering panoramic views of the famed CBD. It's also the perfect spot to catch the sunset with a couple of signature cocktails. Inside Oz Bar, or al fresco by the pool, simply choose your spot, your cocktail, and a bar snack, and just sit back and relax.

The refreshed menus are part of a new programme by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) celebrating the world's best loved cocktails paired with a new line of bar snacks. And as the afternoon sun slowly fades behind the cityscape, the lights are turned on adding a cool vibe to the roof deck. Time for a second cocktail...

The IHG Programme, which is being rolled out across the Asia, Middle East and Africa regions, also celebrates the invention of cocktails and mixology 150 years ago, hence the name, BAR150. And there's no better way to celebrate the storied history of cocktails than with a line of timeless classics, all made with Pernod Ricard premium brands, along with a new bar snack menu created by talented IHG hotel chefs. Start with the classic Whisky Soda (P 350), the perfect union of Schweppes and Ballantines Scotch to cool you down along with the sunset.

As the sun sets, you can pick up the pace with Oz Bar's Whisky Sour (P 350), a smooth and tart blend of bourbon whisky, lemon juice, and sugar syrup. The classic blend of tartness, smokiness and sweetness in a glass, garnished with lemon. Smooth and easy, go have a second Whisky Sour with Oz Bar's two-for-one promotion.

A couple of Mojitos (P 450) should get you in the groove, with its refreshing blend of white rum, soda, lime juice, mint, and sugar syrup. Other cocktails include the tropical Mai Tai (P 350), Brazil's iconic cocktail, the Caipirinha (P 350), Cuba Libre (P 300), Black Russian (P 350), the Perfect Manhattan (P 350), Tequila Sunrise (P 300), Bloody Mary (P 370), Dry Martini (P 450), Screwdriver (P 300), Margarita (P 400), Caipiroska (P 350), and Long Island Iced Tea (P 450). And the best part? You can enjoy two cocktails for the price of one until May 15, 2015.

Pair your cocktails with some cool bar snacks, each reasonably priced starting at only P 320++. Oz Bar rolls out the new bar snacks reflecting a wide range of flavors for that perfect bite with a cocktail.

The new bar menu includes the Grilled Shish Taouk with Garlic Sauce, tender chicken richly seasoned with Middle Eastern spices and perfectly grilled. The delicate flavors of the grilled chicken are enhanced by a blend of spices for a distinct flavor, balanced by the creamy garlic sauce.

Familiar Southwestern flavors are represented with the Oz Bar's Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas, with each quesadilla generously stuffed with chicken and cheese. The richness of the cheese is tempered by the tart pico de gallo for balanced flavors. Pair this with a Margarita...perfect.

No bar menu is complete without some wings. Oz Bar's Deep-Fried Chicken Wings with Thai Spicy Sauce, tender and juicy chicken with a crisp outer layer, with a Thai-inspired sauce that boosts up the flavors. A refreshing Whisky Sour washes down nicely with this dish.

Anything fried works well with cocktails, And this Crispy Chicken Fingers with Chipotle Sauce, with tender chicken strips battered and deep-fried with a creamy Chipotle sauce, is just perfect with a Mojito.

Spicy Thai Pork Meatballs with sweet chili sauce rounds up the new bar menu, and this one's a personal favorite. Hefty and juicy meatballs with the delicate flavors of pork are pumped up with a sweet and spicy sauce, great with a Mai Tai or tall and refreshing Long Island Ice Tea.

Oz Bar also offers equally refreshing non-alcoholic cocktails, like the Tropical Colada (P 280, L), a soothing blend of pineapple juice, coconut cream, and lime juice; and the Virgin Cup No. 1 (P 280, R), a citrusy concoction with ginger ale, lemon juice, lime juice, and basil.

One cool Negroni (P 490) for the road, a fitting drink before the drive back home, with gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. The deep hue is an indication of the bold notes of this classic cocktail, a refreshing bitter sweetness with a serious punch from the gin. A great view, cool cocktails, and some seriously good bar snacks, just the what you need to end the day while catching the sunset. Only at Holiday Inn & Suites Makati's Oz Bar.

Oz Bar is located at the roof deck of Holiday Inn & Suites Makati, located along Palm Drive, Ayala Center, Makati City or call 909-0888 for inquiries and reservations.
