When last did you slip on a little black dress and your favourite pair of heels, Darlings? For me, it was last weekend when I popped into the ever so luxurious Rose Bar at the Alphen Boutique Hotel for a couple of cocktails with my girlfriends. If you haven’t visited this fabulous spot yet, which exudes old-school charm and a stylish atmosphere, you’ve got to do so soon!

The Rose Bar is a cosy, trendy bar that’s relatively relaxed during the day, but picks up in the late evening. Overlooking a glimmering swimming pool with loungers, it’s the perfect place to sip on a refreshing cocktail while you watch the sun go down. After dark, you can you relax in the beautifully decorated inside section, where there’s often live jazz going on.

On the menu, you’ll find cocktails galore, as well as a variety of tantalising snacks. On this particular evening that I visited with my girlfriends, we started off with a round of margaritas and a food platter consisting of oysters, salt and pepper calamari, beef and chicken sliders, as well as a flatbread topped with prawns, goat’s cheese and rocket. 

The cocktails were fantastic, and the food was just scrumptious! Everything was freshly prepared and beautifully presented. We then went on to try the Rose Bar Mojito, which is made with muddle pomegranate, lime quarters, and pomegranate syrup … it was out of this world! Can you say my new favourite cocktail?

While we sipped on our delicious cocktails and enjoyed the soft sounds of jazz floating through the air, we talked, laughed and took loads of photos, which was lots of fun. It was the perfect chilled-out girls’ night, and the best is that we could all dress up for it, as The Rose Bar is a sophisticated spot that allows for you to come dressed to the nines without being frowned upon.

The next time you’re undecided on a venue for a night out with the girls, pop into Rose Bar … the laidback atmosphere with a lining of sophistication in addition to the top-notch cocktails and tapas are sure to delight you, Darlings. It’s also a fabulous as a pit-stop after work with some friends, or for sundowners with that someone special. They’re open from 16:00 to 23:00 on Monday through Friday, and from 12:00 to 23:00 on Saturday and Sunday. Cheers!
