The Sequel, a bar at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel in Colombo (77, Galle Road, Colombo 03), relaunched on September 16.

It previously operated as a champagne and wine bar. Under the concept of “a place where the old meets new,” it has been revamped to become a speakeasy cocktail bar, combining the decadence of yesteryear with modern flavors.

The floor space is approximately 662 square meters. The wall behind the bar counter features black-and-white photos of legendary singers, giving the place a vintage atmosphere. The dimly-lit bar hosts nightly live performances, mainly focusing on jazz. Guests can enjoy cocktails and food while listening to a wide range of music, from 60s classics to today’s house music.

It focuses on creative cuisine, and the menu includes dishes such as Peri Peri Prawns, Sea Bass Croquettes, Jamaican-style Jerk Chicken, and Paella made with a variety of seafood.

The cocktail lineup features 14 types, ranging from the classic to the exotic. Examples include the Summertime, served with cotton candy; the Unforgettable, topped with cherries; and the smokey Fly Me to the Moon. A wide variety of single malts are also available.
