- Balfes, the centrally-located chic dining bar and brasserie, hosted a sumptuous Summer Soiree on The Terrace, last Thursday. The occasion celebrated the official launch of the expertly-created aperitif cocktail menu, designed by the new Balfes Bar Manager, Alan McGillivray.
Alan brings a fresh and vibrant energy to Balfes bar, as well as an in-depth knowledge of mixology, stemming from his international experience at The Dead Rabbit in NYC. The expert mixologist not only brings his world-class serves to Ireland for the first time but has also introduced more refined and sophisticated aperitif categories such as Vermouth, Sherry and Amari to the city centre hotspot.
The new menu features eight new cocktails, each encompassing Alan’s cocktail philosophy of clean and mature flavours. Alan’s unique approach focuses on refined, niche spirits that provide a twist on traditional classic such as a Spritz and Americano.
