Time Out Says
The carpeted floor makes Eclipse comforting, while suited staff give it an air of sophistication. The clientele also dress to impress – it’s a quiet but classy spot.
The white window seats at dark wood high tables arranged around the edge of the bar are the best in the house, and low music and mood lighting create a relaxed ambience that still allows for conversation, so it’s a good venue for small groups to catch up over variety of mixed drinks.
The list isn’t particularly long, but it is comprehensive and will suit all tastes. Prices are on a par with other high-end bars with similar appeal, and if the happy hour is reintroduced – we’re told it recently came to an end – it could outdo its competitors, making it a destination venue, rather than somewhere to stop off when you’re dining in the hotel’s other luxurious options.
Come to this quality bar if you want to impress your guests. With its stunning views and chilled out vibe it’s one of the better options for an unusual mixed drink in Festival City.
The bottom line
Classy yet homely spot with stunning skyline views.
