The Emporium Hotel has done it again, announcing the perfect Winter Escape that is the best, warmest night in you can imagine – think red wine, chocolates, the most perfect bed covered in the most beautiful of linens, pillows for days and a late checkout. It’s the best excuse for a stylish winter hibernation (read: city getaway!).
Emporium Hotel’s Winter Escape package starts at $259 per night, and includes overnight in a luxurious suite, a bottle of perfect cold-weather red wine, exquisite chocolates on arrival, daily valet parking and a late check-out.
If you can drag yourself away from the room and all its winter trimmings, venture down to the stunning Cocktail Bar, which features a fusion of vintage and custom-designed pieces and is home to an all new Winter Cocktail menu and perhaps try the Banofee Pie cocktail, the Pavlova Martini, the Spiced Pumpkin Latte or opt for the Bee’s Knees (featuring honey from the hives on the rooftop no less!) or the classic Strawberries and Champagne. The bar also offers wonderful mocktails like the Lychee & Lemon Myrtle Collins and the Nutella Sundae – seriously heart-warming!
Celebrating history and beauty, the bar is home to a stunning German chandelier which overlooks the grand onyx bar proper, an exquisite stained glass wall from Paris, custom-designed furnishings and is one of the most beautiful places in the city to sit, sip and celebrate the cooler months of the year. Luxury is what Emporium is renowned for, and the Winter Escape is another ode to the Emporium’s commitment to providing the finest quality service and experience for all guests.
