“ELEGANT, CELEBRITY FAVOURITE”
Since it opened in 2010, Marquee has been the swish Xinyi district, earning the respect of, and regular appearances by, celebrities and industry insiders alike. Double doors give onto a wide-open space dominated by a massive wraparound bar and layered in dark wood, with velvet-upholstered seating nooks and dangling lighting fixtures adding a touch of Victorian grandeur. Yet this “premium bar-lounge” is anything but pompous; the highly trained mixologists take visible pride in their craft and are happy to make recommendations from a menu that includes many of their personal creations.
The place also attracts a friendly, diverse mix of people by hosting a wide range of events and theme nights, from jazz to old-school R&B. Marquee’s location in the heart of Xinyi clubland makes it a popular place for clubbers to “pregame” before they move on to somewhere rowdier.
