It’s November and the leftover summer heat is starting to make signs of subsiding, so where do you choose to go for a good drink and a great night out? Do you choose the ‘generic’ restaurant that wants to engulf you and ‘save’ you from the heat? Or do you go for something different? eStilo offers all that to its customers and more.
Located within the hip Uptown square (home to Zen Room, Chi Lounge and Chester’s), eStilo is designed to resemble a patio, immediately giving the customer a feeling of comfort and cosyness making it the perfect place for a relaxing experience and ideal for socialising. The décor is fairly simple, straightforward and elegant. You have the choice of sitting on tall stools or on normal chairs inside or out. The atmosphere in the bar is more than relaxing, making it an ideal place for a night away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives.
With its interesting, beautifully presented cocktails choosing what to drink can be challenging. There are the classics with some house cocktails as well, which always bodes well for a bar. Considering the weather, I ordered the Fine n Spiced, made with dark rum, a touch of vanilla, passion fruit and lime and topped with ginger beer – the taste was exactly what they advertise, finely spicey. The combination of the ingredients brings out a refreshing spiced taste that packs a punch but in a subtle way. The presentation in a tall glass also meant there was quite a lot of it.
But I love gin and I love elderflower, so the elderflower flower frost was something I couldn’t miss out on – and I was glad I didn’t. Whether vodka, gin or rum is your spirit of choice (they also have tequila, whiskey and mastiha based cocktails, which I’ll save for my next visit) the selection of cocktails will not disappoint.
On top of all this eStilo has a rich wine list with the best options from local wines and wines from all over the world (Italy, France, Greece, Chile, Austria, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.) All in all, eStilo offers a unique bar experience. A night at eStilo will be thoroughly enjoyed by anyone looking and willing for a new experience.
