The new menu, called A Journey Through The Great Musical Genres, is inspired by musical styles from the past century.

The 18 new cocktails are accompanied by a collection of artwork by British artist Gerald Scarfe, who lent his name to the bar.

The menu is the first to be created by new head bartender Yann Bouvignies along with bars director Martin Siska.

Every member of the bar team, from waiter to bartender, has been involved in developing the cocktails.

To create the cocktails, the bar team used key characteristics of the artists featured including Prince, Aretha Franklin and Tupac.

The musical genres represented are: pop, classic, soul, jazz, funk, rock, electro, world and hip-hop. Two drinks have been created to represent each artist and their career highlights.

Cocktails on the menu include the “vegetal and bright” Scarfes Issue to represent the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, while Bob Marley’s Rastafarian roots are referenced in the non-alcoholic No Booze No Cry.
