Hidden in the alleyways of Haji lane and Arab Street lies a vintage noir bar fill with delectable music played on a vinyl. Furnished in style with the glamour of the old world, the bar was the perfect movie set for Wong Kar-Wai’s “In the mood for love”.
Stepping into the long corridor filled with nostalgia from yesteryear, you probably have a chance to strike up a deal with Don Vito from ‘The Godfather” over a serious glass of Marlon Brando. Prepared to be roused by a concoction of Cognac, Stella Artois reduction, maple syrup and a squeeze of citrus. This is definitely a glass you simply cannot refuse.
Save a dance and waltz cheek to cheek with Fred Astaire over a glass of a smooth ruby red cocktail in honour of the legendary dancer. A skillful whirl of apricot liqueur, Riesling and gin definitely makes you feel like Ginger Rogers gliding on air across the ballroom.
This place makes you feel like stepping back in time to the days of glamour and grandeur yet pampered with modern flavours of small bites that lingers on your palette.
The Buttermilk chicken, deep fried served with a dollop of tangy coronation sauce is a classic favourite. Simple yet satisfying. If you want a spicy kick, the Togarashi squid will leave you sizzling for more of their Shimichi pepper, paprika, garlic and chilli powdered spice mix.
It is definitely not difficult to fall in love and develop a sentimental yearning for the good times in the impeccable atmosphere at Longplay.
Longplay is highly recommended for small and intimate parties, vintage classic themed nights, mysterious matchmaking sessions or a one-of-a-kind time travel.
