Blink and you might miss Aurora’s unassuming little bar located at the far end of the restaurant. Despite its diminutive size, the bar is a great place to relax over a pre-dinner cocktail or glass of wine from the restaurant’s temperature-controlled cellar, which is stocked with more than 600 varieties from around the world. (The bar’s somewhat secluded location in the back of the restaurant also yields some great people-watching opportunities.)
If the weather is nice, our Forbes Travel Guide editors recommend taking your drink outside and finding a quiet spot amongst the bamboo groves of Aurora’s lovely outdoor patio, which has unobstructed views of the dazzling skyline of the Macau Peninsula across the South China Sea.
If you arrive early to your reservation at Aurora, take a quick stop at the bar located in the front of the restaurant. Sit in one of the comfy leather chairs and order from our extensive wine list, as well as our cocktail menu with a variety of liquors. While you’re sipping your drink, make sure you gaze out of the floor-to-ceiling windows at the stunning views of the Macau peninsula and South China Sea. We also have a wooden outdoor terrace with smaller tables where you can take a moment to relax as well. If you wish to make a post-dinner stop at a bar, there’s also the option of heading up to the top floor of Altira Macau to the 38 Lounge, which also offers incredible views, live music and a slew of cocktails to choose from.
