Steal away to a table tucked at the back of the room for heist-planning levels of privacy.
Glam it up like a silver-screen star (just leave the cigars – Ms Parker’s rumoured vice, in addition to the whole bank-robbing thing – at home).
Named after the female lead of America’s notorious bank-robbing duo, restaurant Bonnie’s is on the ground floor in the original Bank Hall, which has impressive vaulted glass ceilings, marble columns and sea-green velvet seating. Chef Janne Holopainen whips up costal European fare for lunch and dinner, including beef fillet with chanterelles, grilled pike perch in bouillabaisse, and salt baked beet with capers. For afters, break the piggy bank – a decadent dessert of meringue, blackberry sorbet and fudge encased in a chocolate shell – with your partner in crime. In the morning, Bonnie’s hosts an extensive breakfast buffet of pastries, breads, meats, cheeses, fruit and cereals. There’s also an à la carte menu of oysters, crêpes, French toast and hollandaise-topped egg dishes.
The elegant, mahogany-panelled Papillon Bar is modelled after the Bank Director’s private office. Swagger over to art deco-style backlit bar and order a Pisco–, apple- and ginger-based Dirty Money cocktail or a passion-fruit laced Smash and Grab with orange bitters and zingy yuzu. If you’re worried about a Prohibition-era raid on the joint, fear not – non-alcoholic cocktails are the specialty here. Try the Mediterranean Sour (with rosemary, blood orange and lemon) or the Negroni 94 (Seedlip spice 94, giffart bitter and tonic). Alternatively, ascend to top-floor cocktail lounge Le Hibou, where the black-and-white design scheme is inspired by a chic Parisian apartment. Order an Aviation Tonic 185 (a medley of Star of Bombay gin, maraschino and violet liquers, tonic water and lemon) and slip onto the terrace to drink in the superlative skyline views.
Breakfast is served from 6.30am to 10am (7am to 11am on weekends). Bonnie’s stays open until midnight Monday to Thursday, 1am on Friday and Saturday nights, and a sedate 11pm on Sundays. Le Hibou is open from 4pm (1pm weekends) to 1am.
A pared-down version of the restaurant menu is available for room service, and your minibar is packed with snacks, spirits, wine and champagne.
