You don’t need to be name checked by Monocle to be a destination bar but it helps. Nevermind that the light shimmering left to the horizon is actually from a cement plant, Rhu Bar’s exotic Moorish/Malay setting of intricate wooden screens, wicker sofas piled with magenta cushions, Turkish water pipes, fire lamps and white orchids makes it one of the most arresting spots on the island for drinks. Order up some meze to go with your cocktail and watch the sun sink below the horizon as you shoot a game on the magenta pool table or lull yourself in the Moghul Indian swing with the fragrance of the frangipani hanging in the air and waves gently lapping the white sand beach beyond.
