Venue information

ESS – The Governor’s rooftop bar has 360-degree views of the local area and surrounds. This sundrenched rooftop provides a beautiful backdrop to escape for sunset drinks and afternoon knock-offs. Guests can dine the day away with an array of spaces to choose from on the Ess rooftop. One can start by ordering drinks at the bar, housed in a greenhouse complete with lush greenery, leather stools and high wooden benches, before moving into one of the five private booths, resplendent with a backwall of ferns or kick back in the patio couches and watch the rooftop come to life at sunset.

The food offer at Ess is reflective and inspired from modern cuisines driven by Luke Lashford. Some dishes including buttermilk fried chicken, green Ess bowl, mini bbq pork buns, salt and pepper squid, truffle and parmesan fries as well as a variety of pizza’s.
