We popped into the InterCon for some sunset drinks on their terrace. The staff were running around aimlessly and no one addressed us so we stopped someone who was rushing by and asked for a table. We were informed that they were closed for a private function - no signs displayed.

How much is the buffet breakfast here?
Does the the club lounge include alcohol drinks?
Okay, so from the answers - most bars serve alcoholic beverages, for club class visitors they have snacks at certain times of the day but alcohol drinks only free of charge between 6 - 8pm?
