LA loves an energy healer (all those signs for psychics on Melrose prove it), but how about harmonising your qì with a cocktail or two? Well, look no further than the bar at The Maybourne Hotel. The menu is divided into sections themed around the five Chinese elements, meaning you can choose from Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space depending on the balance your body needs. Now that's the kind of energetic alignment we're into.
Wanna go with the flow more and embrace Water? The Mirror Mirror is their vision of a clarified Margarita - it captures the reflective vibes of a mirror, and blends the freshness of cucumber, the sharpness of green apple and herbaceous notes of grass in a kick-ass cocktail that’s crisp and clean. If you fancy something fierier, grab the Salute Your Shorts for a lively libation that’s going to set sparks flying - it blends Wild Turkey bourbon, Da Hong Pao tea and toasted marshmallow.
Even the menu is stunning, designed by a Chinese artist who uses ink and watercolour to create a work of art. Whether you’re at The Maybourne to check in to a room or are just planning to check out the bar, then this hot hotel needs to be on your Beverly Hills hit-list.
