A great range of brilliantly executed and imaginative cocktails in an atmospheric setting in keeping with the evolution theme. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and a great wine list. Definitely worth a visit, even if you aren’t staying in the hotel.More

We visited this bar a couple of times as so comfortable, relaxed and extensive drinks list. The cocktail waiter/s were kept very busy but all very good. Meals available but we simply enjoyed the drinks and locationMore

The second time I have visited the Evolve Spirits Bar in 2 weeks and both times understaffed. The service was very slow as not enough staff.

A lovely-looking bar but we didn't find the seating comfortable (we tried the high tables at the front, then the sunken lounge area) and the air conditioning was too cold to relax, we didn't linger.More

This bar is attached to the MACq01 hotel. It has an awesome range of spirits and wines and the staff are very good at explaining the menu and giving recommendations/making cocktails to suit your tastes. The bar is a very nice evening setting in its...own right, located by the water in a low lit room, but the addition of fossils, complete with a book to explain the different things you can see, is a unique and interesting touch.More
