The Im­por­tance of Be­ing Ernest

The Peak (Hong Kong) - - Food & Drink • News -

“I drink to make other peo­ple more in­ter­est­ing,” the end­lessly quotable Ernest Hem­ing­way once said. The Old Man, a new speakeasy hid­den in an al­ley­way off Aberdeen Street, pays trib­ute to the Amer­i­can writer’s legacy. As the brain­child of three lo­cal bar in­dus­try vet­er­ans, Agung Prabowo, James Ta­mang, and Ro­man Ghale, the space boasts na­ture-in­spired touches along with stylish round ta­bles and ap­ple-green stools. The bar menu is in­spired by Hem­ing­way, of course, with imag­i­na­tive cocktails named af­ter the au­thor’s works. The Snows of Kil­i­man­jaro for ex­am­ple, fea­tures marsh­mal­low gin, lacto-fer­mented raspberry and gruyère.
