“I know John”: Back when we were young(er) and used to party into the early mornings, the phrase “I know John” was the ultimate passcode to get into the hottest clubs in LKF. Flash forward to today, and Prive Group has immortalised the phrase by naming their newest lounge after it.

Bottle service: The 1800 square feet lounge centers around specialty cocktails, niche wines and whiskeys. A 16 feet bar dominates the modern rustic space, awash in natural timber and grey tones, with an outdoor balcony overlooking bustling Wellington street at the gate of LKF. On the drink list are intriguing libations such as the chorizo milagro ($95), an aged rum infused with chorizo and capers, laced with maple syrup. There’s also the spiced tea punch ($85), stirred with infused ginger chamomile and honey gin, guava puree and citrus juice. Bottled cocktails like the delicious sounding honey and butter limoncello ($90) are also available.

Dawgs: A line-up of gourmet hot dogs as well as artisan cheese and charcuterie bulk up the food front. There’s the cheesy French onion dog made of smoky garlic pork sausage smothered in caramlised onion, creme fraiche, Dijon and Gruyere, and the “American” with smoked turkey sausage, creamed corn and chives. Or you can have a fiesta with the “Mexican”, a spicy jalapeno cheese pork sausage topped with cheddar, pico de gallo, sour cream and guacamole.
