Opal Bar

About Opal Bar

A sexy grotto below the lovely l'Etranger, Opal is a hidden gem of a drinking, dancing and dining den. The ambience is enhanced with black walls and sinuous banquettes that curve round the cave-like bends. Pockets of privacy here and there float under pools of coloured light. The rest of the seating is a flock of little poufs straight out of Austin Powers. Opal has a tremendously varied drinks list, focusing on gigundo kegs of punch to share among four to eight mates as well as classic Martinis and such. The menu is French-inflected Asian finger food, which suits the international crowd just fine. Share a platter of fresh sashimi, or an Oriental platter. Once you're stoked, then dance the night away.
