Hg2 : The Hedonist


Centro is very easily the most happening bar in the CBD, filled both with the suits and a trendy younger crowd (admittedly some are aspiring PAs). Aimed at a well-heeled set the cocktails have London prices but they are generally acknowledged as superb – try the tangy Bloody Mary or the Dirty Martini. Happy hour here is always very lively with patrons taking advantage of the 2-for-1 champagne-based cocktails. Weeknights the ambiance is mellow and a favorite spot for business drinks with clients. On Friday and Saturday nights the bar can get packed with fans of live jazz music as Centro regularly brings in topnotch international talent such as American chanteuse Avis Ellis. (Cover charges can go through the roof and it is usually necessary to book in advance.) If you’re looking to hobnob with Fortune 500 CEOs or government officials then Centro is the milieu for you.
