An equally vibrant evening and weekend drink destination, sunsets on the 45th floor are perfectly paired with LES45’s cocktails – unique tequilas from Mexico as well as the well-loved limed Corona. For a soothing, thirst quenching start to the LES45 experience, homemade horchatas – a traditional non-alcoholic Mexican drink made from rice, milk, almonds and cinnamon, is a menu staple.
Mexican chef Jorge
Helming the kitchen is Mexican chef Jorge, who combines his beloved heritage with over a decade of international culinary experience to present a refreshing modern take on authentic dishes. His signature dish is the moreish LES Guacamole which is prepared tableside with fresh, bright ingredients in a molcajete, a traditional stone mortar and pestle from Mexico. The Lobster Tacos with Ginger Mint Mojo and Brown Butter as well as the tangy Chicken Tinga Tostadas with Mango Guacamole and Wasabi Fried Egg are other hero items that highlight his personal cooking style – marrying Mexican tradition with today’s modern palate. Not to be missed are the Tempura Hake Tacos, served with the tantalising homemade Hibiscus Mayo and Salsa Fresca.

With the vibrant bar at the heart of the restaurant, guests can drink or dine indoors or al fresco, the latter with breezy cityscape views. In line with its menu style, the tasteful interior mixes Mexican touches and global influences – with punchy tiles and a cheeky neon sign at the entrance. A specially curated playlist of upbeat, Spanish tracks evolves throughout the day, from laidback low-key daytime tracks to lively energetic evening beats, right through to the early hours on weekends.
