la vie en Grace •

We wanted a place where we didn't have to jostle for tables on a Saturday night. Basically, such a place doesn't exist unless it was: New and not yet well-known, and inaccessible as hell. Capella popped into mind, and a quick search on our trusty iphones resulted in this fabulous find.
Bob's Bar boasts a great view overlooking the sea beyond the hotel's infinity pools. The daybeds were great for chilling out and the staff very helpfully brought the portable fans closer to us when we complained it was warm.
Staff were knowledgeable and articulate, and were more than happy to engage in a bit of chit chat. You get the sense that they enjoy their work and that liveliness bounced off them to make us feel really welcomed.
I wanted to go for my regular Bombay Sapphire & Tonic but the staff recommended I try Tanqueray which he claims is his favorite, and so I did. Good choice! The champagne cocktails were great as well.
I'll go back to check out the wine list soon.
