The Captain’s Bar, a subterranean watering hole off the lobby of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, is—at over 50 years old—one of the oldest bars in the city. It exudes old-world class and evokes a first-class ocean liner with waiters in crisp white tuxedo jackets, overstuffed leather chairs, polished brass and dark wood. The locale of choice for titans and tycoons, the Captain’s Bar is the perfect place for impressing a client or plotting the take over of a small principality. And in keeping with its classic atmosphere, gimmicks involving smoke and foam are not this establishment’s calling card; rather, this is the place for a Gin and Tonic, an impeccable Old-Fashioned or a gin Martini.
