Our wine cellar is stocked with an extensive collection representing the world's most renowned regions/ Furthermore, our signature culinary inspired cocktails offer a truly unique taste that incorporates the season's best flavors. With live entertainment in the evenings, you'll find that the fare on our bar menu is impressive and imaginative in the spirit of Herons.

The Bar & Lounge operates on a first come, first serve basis.
