Bid adieu to The Roof Gastro. The long-standing, sky-high rooftop bar at the quirkily designed hotel near The National Stadium has been given a facelift. Paradise Lost is playful and colorful as every corner is designed for a photo-op. The venue is clad in pretty pastel pink and lush greenery evoking a chic tropical feel. The drinks focus on refreshing flavor profile with a strong emphasis on zero-waste philosophy. Bar chows are courtesy of the innovative Thai rooftop restaurant Taan. Paradise Lost will welcome guests from 6 August onward.
