Mandarin Oriental Munich unveils chic cocktail bar, Ory
November 13, 2018: Mandarin Oriental, Munich has opened Ory, a chic new cocktail bar serving avant-garde drinks in a contemporary setting. Conceptualised by gastronome Maximilian Gradl, Ory is operated by his company Barschaft B17 GmbH. Ory has been designed by acclaimed architect Özgür Keles and his studio, Selektiv.
Within Ory's eye-catching dark green and gold interiors, featuring brass fixtures, wood panels, red velvet seating and large potted-plants, guests will find a welcoming yet sophisticated atmosphere. Gelato containers at the bar and a filtered water fountain in the centre of the room are among Ory's distinctive features.
Ory's drinks menu is divided into four categories: Ory Classics features newly interpreted versions of famous cocktails, using different textures, such as coconut sorbet instead of cream or syrup. Ory Signature Drinks includes playful creations like the Royal Hawaiian, a traditional tiki cocktail of gin, almond, lemon and pineapple, refined with a roasted almond and Tonka orgeat and topped off with champagne. Ory Apero is a creative and light-hearted aperitif menu and Ory Highballs completes the quartet with refreshing versions of Gin and Tonic and other old-style favourites.
The cocktails are supplemented by bar food dishes inspired by international comfort food, like Ribs Don’t Lie, pork ribs refined with plum, cilantro and lime, or The Coconut Knight, French toast with coconut milk and pineapple-rum marmalade.
