Sipping a cocktail and enjoying the live jazz band it was like being transported to a different world. These kind of nights are rare in Muscat but when they do happen it makes them all the more enjoyable.
Last night I headed along for a sophisticated night of live music and divine cocktails at the ‘Blue Carpet’ event at the John Barry Bar in the Grand Hyatt Hotel. This was an invitation only night.
The event welcomed back the wonderful travelling bartender, Mr Denzel Heath.
I had the pleasure of meeting Denzel at an event in December of last year where his expert cocktail skills left me feeling a little tipsy. Oh, who am I kidding I was hammered!
Since then he has become a bit famous in town with the ladies heading along to swoon across the bar as he creates a cocktail to their tastes.
This time round I vowed that my night wouldn’t end like last time and I would still be feeling fresh for the next day. That takes strong will power that I simply do not have. These drinks are too delicious and before you know it you are ordering another round. Ooops.
I would love to tell you that the night ended gracefully as I collected my bag and headed for the door at 10.30pm but then I bumped into some more people I knew and then a few more.
So 10.30pm turned into 4am as I finally called it quits and jumped in a taxi headed for home.
In true Hyatt style it was a fantastic night with fun and interesting people.
swoon over catch Denzel and his addictive creations at the John Barry bar until the 7th March 2015.
