Located within the walls of the beautiful Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Colombia
is hidden a jewel of the old world.
The Bengal Lounge…….
Drawing inspiration from Queen Victoria’s role as the Empress of India,
this colonial style lounge is known throughout Victoria for its authentic curry buffet and signature cocktail menu
The hallway to the Bengal is adorned with beautiful fabric tapestries from India…
Cocktail and martini aficionados will appreciate The Bengal Lounge’s extensive selection of signature drinks with such names as the Bengal Tiger, Ivory Hunter and Tiger’s Kiss, to name just a few!
Tin Man decided to have The Empress 1908, a recommendation of the server….
For a meal, English Fish and Chips seemed appropriate….
The Bengal Lounge is quite a proper sort of place to sip on a cocktail, not at all like the casual sports bars found in the U.S.
The Beautiful Bengal Tiger Fur Hangs over the fireplace, a reminder of times gone by…
Tin Man was reminded of Madonna’s song: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun when he spied these two…evidently a cocktail too many…hehehehhe
Pure Delight at every turn inside this Grande Dame of a Hotel….
