Gold Marquess recently rolled out a new menu of tasty cocktails, all of which are two-for-one during happy hour. The only caveat is during happy hour, these drinks are made with well liquor, though they don't taste like it.
Cocktails include the Asian Pearsuasion ($9), made with Absolut Pear, sake, SOHO Lychee Liqueur and brandy, and the Ming Dynasty Margarita ($9), with Patrón Silver tequila, Grand Marnier Cointreau and lime juice. The Thai Boxer ($9), with Thai basil, Grey Goose, coconut milk and chilled ginger beer along with the Dim Punch ($9) with Hendrick's gin, Chambord Liqueur, ginger beer and fresh lime juice are new additions to the cocktail menu.
During happy hour, Gold Marquess offers light bites at the bar. Prices range from $3 to $7 and include veggie or pork spring rolls, crispy crab rangoons, crispy wontons and barbecue spare ribs.
