Across all its venues, the renowned brand will bedeck itself in the vibrant hues of World Cocktail Month, offering an array of local activations and an unparalleled cocktail selection.

Hotel Bars: Hubs of Sociability and Creativity

MGallery hotel bars stand as quintessential hubs where travellers and locals converge, fostering connections and nurturing ideas. These spaces epitomize a vibrant synergy, embodied by mixologists meticulously trained over six to twelve months.

This dedication underscores the ingenuity of MGallery’s bartenders, who infuse life into these venues, forging exclusive bonds with patrons who revel in their craft.

According to Catherine Cherabieh, Vice-President of the MGallery Hotel Collection, “Creativity is expressed everywhere in MGallery Hotel bars. Mixology is an ideal way to summon the essence of a place through sight, smell, and taste. It’s a universe that demands real expertise: over the years, we have built an expert team of local mixologists.”

Immersive Events: A Feast for the Senses

Throughout World Cocktail Month, MGallery hotels will host a plethora of events to captivate guests. Weekly masterclasses will offer participants insights into mixology, allowing them to craft at least two cocktails under the guidance of expert mixologists.

Special weeks dedicated to mocktails will encourage the exploration of sophisticated non-alcoholic beverages. Patrons can also indulge in culinary cocktails, marrying traditional cocktails with kitchen ingredients like fresh herbs and spices.

In collaboration with chefs, the hotels’ restaurants will present bespoke food-cocktail pairings, showcasing local produce in both drinks and dishes. The festivities commenced at the Admiral Hotel Manila – MGallery, with two days brimming with discovery.

A Commitment to Sustainability

Beyond the artistry of mixology, MGallery is dedicated to fostering sustainability behind the bar. Embracing a zero-waste approach, the brand advocates for holistic practices: from utilising whole products to composting organic waste and prioritising local, seasonal ingredients.

Notably, MGallery’s signature cocktail recipes are being revamped to comprise at least 40% local alcohol. Furthermore, the brand champions ‘creative’ recycling, and repurposing powders, shavings, and peels in innovative recipes.

In conclusion, MGallery’s celebration of World Cocktail Month is a testament to its dedication to the art of mixology, innovation, and sustainability.

Through expertly crafted cocktails and immersive events, patrons are invited to embark on a sensory journey that transcends borders and cultures.
