Summary: Eclectic drinks, creative menu, and luxe decor.

Artesian, nestled inside the Langham Hotel, is a luxurious cocktail bar known for its award-winning history and sumptuous design by David Collins. It offers an innovative cocktail menu named Ingredients of the Future, featuring 16 unique drinks crafted around a single key ingredient, ranging from kombu to nopales. The bar's commitment to both ecological consciousness and flavor experimentation is evident in concoctions like Beetroot, which pairs the sweetness of the vegetable with rum and a kick of Sichuan pepper. Artesian also serves an appetizing food menu, created in conjunction with Angelo Sato of Humble Chicken, including delights such as buttermilk chicken karaage and katsu curry Scotch eggs. This complements its impressive selection of 75 rums and classic cocktails like the gin martini. The venue's oriental-inspired modern decor, complete with iconic purple leather chairs and pagoda lamps, adds to the allure, making it a sophisticated spot for not just evening drinks but also breakfast and afternoon tea.
