I was staying at the Intercontinental Hotel in Shenzhen, China and had a fantastic meal at their Brazilian barbecue restaurant called Alenha. After the meal, my friend and I went up to the whiskey bar above the lobby. This venue felt like a private lounge in a Western country. Be sure to read about the rest of the Intercontinental Shenzhen here.
The design of this place was stunning, a very classic Western style bar and lounge. This whiskey lounge has several private rooms ranging in size and theme. In the main area of the lounge you’ll find lots of very comfortable seating areas, from large booths to lounge chairs.
Lounge 1982 has a very large international selection of high quality whiskeys. For the evening our fantastic host served us The Japanese Hakushu Single Malt whisky aged 18 years and the Scottish Octomore Edition 07.1 whisky aged 5 years. Both were delicious in their own rights, the Octomore packed a strong punch at 60% alcohol.
Personally, I really enjoy this type of space! Lounge 1982 provides the perfect setting for an intimate conversation, while being able to enjoy some of the best whiskeys worldwide. If you don’t finish your whiskey don’t fear, you can leave it in one of their VIP lockers and resume consumption on your next visit!
My stay at the Intercontinental Hotel Shenzhen was a great way to end my trip. This proper sendoff made me feel warm and fuzzy inside, I can’t wait to return. If you’re looking for a great place to enjoy whiskey in Shenzhen, China, look no further than Lounge 1982 at the Intercontinental Hotel Shenzhen!
