As passionate as the W Hotels are about music and design, the same enthusiasm applies in their international pursuit for food and cocktails. A menu inspired by musician rock star personas as created especially for the Sound Suite plays host to a tantalising array of finely crafted culinary ensembles to fit the persona of a musician stereotype. BAZAAR’s top selections include The Diva – Lanson Brut Champagne, lobster salad with Osetra Caviar, The Studio Geek – espresso & artisanal homemade Cracker Jacks, and in true spirit of everything the suite represents from music to pop culture, one shan’t leave without a indulgence on the The Hip Hop Classic consisting of Ciroc Ultra-Premium, cranberry, Wagyu beef sliders & truffle fries.
