Refreshing Cocktails @ AC HOTEL KINGSTON

The cocktail scene is heating up! The result we imagine of the country now fully opened and the ability to hang out with our favourite bartender. It’s understandable that the title holders of the Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Award for Best Wine/Cocktail Experience AC Hotel Kingston have already mixed, stirred and poured #welcomebackcocktails.

The feedback has been positive, according to AC Hotel Kingston bar supervisor Andre Guthrie, with whom we recently spent an afternoon enjoying all four cocktails poured during the month of April.

Our suggestion is pretty simple: Dress up, step out and test your bartender’s cocktail skills. Do feel free to share your finds with us @jamaicaobserver

Until then, join us this and every Thursday for cocktails (after all, somewhere in the world it’s five o’clock!)
