The Vintage Room is a charming little place at Duxton Hill; embodying 1920s old world glamour, think Tom Buchannan and his mistress at their apartment. Red walls with vintage golden furniture, dainty ornaments as details, plenty well-lit by warm lights. This actually looks more like a high-tea place for taitais to converge than a watering hole. Very unlike any other bars we’ve been to.
While the décor is positively feminine, the drinks are not. The Vintage Room puts emphasis on their vintage wine/ champagne collection – sourced from all over the world. You can order by the glass, or per bottle.
We decided to go for cocktails instead. It was a short but decent list (about 8 variations), enough for each of us to find something to our liking. We stuck to the classics – old fashioned and negroni ($15 each). Maybe it’s because I wasn’t expecting much, in my mind I wrote it off as just another pretty bar. But my old fashioned was a great kick. My friend was equally lovin’ her negroni. The next round, I opted for a house recipe which didn’t fare that well. So I’d stick to the classics next time.
I would revisit this place with girlfriends for a catch-up session. It’s a nice place for photo-ops when you’re all dressed up.
