Joe’s Bar is a curious meeting place to enjoy the curated wine list or enjoy a classic or more adventurous pre-dinner drink from an enviable cocktail list.
Joe’s has a selection of over 20 varieties of gin, both international and local, with a comprehensive list of bespoke G&T’s that highlight regional botanicals – the perfect refreshing cocktail during the warmer months. Alongside this is a collection of classic Italian aperitifs and cocktails and a bespoke Negroni list that instantly transports guests to a sun-drenched Tuscan terrace. Joe’s barrel-aged, small batch Negroni’s are created in-house from a variety of select ingredients before being patiently left to come of age.
To whet the pre-dinner appetite, Joe’s presents the ‘Art of the Aperitivi’, Italian tapas-style antipasto plates designed to snack on and accompany a glass of vino, aperitif or refreshing beer.
A small bar with a big vision, Joe’s Bar is designed by Kelly Ross with big, bold statement details that draw the eye, creating a sense of time and place that is akin to architectural storytelling. A concrete curtain seems perfectly at home in the intimate space. Venetian cultural and aesthetic cues are constantly interwoven into the design of the space with the metaphorical characteristics of elements such as fine Murano glass weaving their way through the visual narrative, with results that are simultaneously raw and refined. Joe’s Bar is an immersive experience that creates curiosity – a desire to sit, order a drink and explore the details. A quirky rope installation, an unforgettable bright pinot-hued pink wall and low hanging lights make you look twice, absorbing the constant contradictions between soft and hard, old and new. The rich colour palette for the space is drawn from wine, with qualities of clarity, brilliance, tone and depth.
As the sun goes down, guests can sit at tables outside and enjoy the buzz or relax in the hotel lobby space and enjoy Joe’s attentive table service.
