A new speakeasy joins the growing pack of hidden bars in the TTDI area. There’s no signboard, but look for a shiny shield plastered on a door along Jalan Datuk Sulaiman (here’s a hint: it’s near Food Foundry). Head upstairs and you’ll be greeted by a knight in shining armour. Virgin & Throne is separated into two sections, the bar and the back area. The bar area is a combination of both the medieval and the modern, with throne-like stools and chic couches. The back is the VIP area, complete with snug Chesterfield sofas and a long table for big groups. Thick curtains are used to partition the areas if you want privacy.
Cocktails are the main focus here. A favourite is the Marshmallow Milkshake, which has cream, vanilla and a vodka-infused marshmallow – tastes just like a vanilla milkshake. For first timers, they recommend the two namesake cocktails, Virgin and Throne. Virgin is a sweeter choice with fresh berries and is vodka-based, while Throne on the other hand is a gin-based cocktail with fresh fruit juice.
If you’re feeling peckish, the Virgin Nachos are an excellent savoury option that comes with a side of guacamole, tomato salsa and sour cream. For bigger groups, you can’t go wrong with the Meat Platter that has lamb, beef, spring chicken, sausages, as well as potatoes and peppers on the side. There are also black pepper and barbecue sauces for dipping.
