Another newbie from the Ghanem Group, Iris Rooftop, perched at the top of Hotel X in the Valley, has Mediterranean vibes in spades. From the canopy of wisteria above the entrance to the dreamy, curtained booths lining one side of the rooftop, this spot will whisk you far away from the Valley streets below.
With a menu designed to nibble and share, like any good Mediterranean feast, the line-up of eats here includes the likes of smashed pumpkin guacamole with tortilla chips, red claw crayfish tails with guanciale and ajo blanco, BBQ pork rib pinchos with macadamia honey glaze and grilled gem lettuce with spanner crab and avocado mojo verde. Best leave room for a sweet finish though, because you’ll want to dig a spoon into the decadently creamy tiramisu, delicate baklava topped with ice cream and warm apple tart with a fudgy centre.
As for the drinks, we hear cocktail ‘sodas’ are the hot new trend in the mixology world, and you can sample them first here—think your favourite classic cocktail in soda form, like an Aperol spritz soda. Or you can just get regular cocktails of course—our pick is the pretty-in-pink pina colada, or a jug of rose sangria.
