Charles H. Bar
Illustration and Menu Design
The first and only bar located in a global hotel brand, Charles H. Bar (named after Charles H. Baker, the legendary American cocktail writer) takes heed from its namesake: behind every good drink is an unforgettable story. Exotic, glamorous and steeped in the romance of world travel, Charles H. features a cocktail menu that traces Baker's epic travels in search of the perfect drink across eras and continents – from old-fashioned to craft cocktails, making it a cocktail aficionado's dream come true.
Each section of the menu is sectioned with a beautiful illustration of the city it pays homage to. Starting with New York City, the menu is styled in 1920s glamour and mystery, and inspired by the United American Lines 'Around The World 1927 S.S. Resolute'. The menu is designed to complement the illustrations with touches of the interior of the bar, so that each copy is a work of art that customers can browse whilst sipping their handcrafted cocktail.
