*** ROOF Liquid Gastronomy Bar
**************************************

Located within the Yangon International Hotel compound—the heart of Yangon’s nightlife—Roof Liquid Alchemy Bar is the very first molecular mixology cocktail bar in Yangon, Myanmar. The following are my experiences during ROOF’s Door Opening Party on the night of January 15th.

As soon as my friends and I disembarked from my car, we heard faint music trickling down from above; it was the sound of a steady beat accompanied with a soft bass, which the DJ, was playing from the top floor of the ROOF bar. Filled with enthusiasm, we quickly made our way from the parking lot of the Yangon International compound to the stairs at the entrance of the ROOF bar complex. When we got up to the third and final floor, we saw a big blackboard that had a list of the unique cocktails that are available to order. Some of the names that stood out to me in particular were: “Kiwi Eclipse,” “Zero Gravity,” and “The Mystery bottle.” It was as if the bar was a chemistry lab; and the cocktails were magical potions concocted by professionals alchemists.

Upon our arrival, the friendly staff greeted us and showed us to a table filled with a wide variety of tapas, such as but not limited to; potato chunks; shrimps in tartar sauce; and small buns—for all the guest to taste for free. The tables were all decorated with vibrant neon colored cloths. From the back of the room to the patio, there was a completely open space with no doors and obstacles. There was no need for AC due to the ample fresh breezes. While I was sitting at the bar, I felt like I was flying; I was free to float in the sky filled with stars. All the stress from my entire day simply vanished—the ambiance of the bar had washed it all away. It was truly a magical and tranquil experience.

After about ten minutes, the glass of Jager Bomb and the plate of “Beer Beef Tacos,” which I had ordered, arrived and was placed before me. The beef was so tender and tasty that I couldn’t help but smile after every bite. As I feasted the night away, club music played in background. The music was not too loud or too intense; it was a perfect balance between upbeat and chill. The fusion of good food and great music within an open and free space was what made everyone’s night special.

Next, my friends and I tried ROOF Bar’s signature cocktail: “The Rainbow Set,” or “The Smoking Chill Drink.” It was a set of six rainbow colored tubes with smoke gushing on top of the surface of each tube. There were six different colors and it ranged from weak to strong. I drank from all six tubes, one after another, and enjoyed the different and distinct taste of each. Later, the staff brought out a glowing, neon­blue, “Mixed Fruit Shisha” contraption that was filled with with ice cubes—for all of us to try. Every time I inhaled the smoke, it felt smooth in my throat; when I exhaled, the smoke came out nice and thick, almost like fluffy white clouds. In addition, the flavor of the Shisha was one that I had never tasted before; I don’t think that this flavor is available in other bars in Yangon.

When the opening party came to it’s end, I had no idea that three hours had passed by; it felt like three minutes. My friends and I had a great time, and we would like to thank ROOF bar for providing such a memorable and unforgettable experience. ROOF Liquid
Alchemy bar is a truly unique place—it is where friendships are formed and where fairy tales can come true.
