The Con­ti­nen­tal

Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Bar review -

With its grand cafe decor and se­ri­ous list of liquors, The Con­ti­nen­tal's con­vivial yet classy bar is the per­fect perch for cock­tail con­nois­seurs. Lo­cated at the front of the restau­rant, with in­ti­mate nooks for smaller groups, this discreet wa­ter­ing hole is the per­fect place to ob­serve the beau­ti­ful peo­ple ar­riv­ing for their din­ner reser­va­tions. The team be­hind the bar have in their arse­nal an im­pres­sive range of ab­sinthes and pre­mium gins. As be­fits the beau­ti­ful, clas­sic decor, the cock­tail list is equal parts tra­di­tional and whim­si­cal. The Clover Club is done won­der­fully here, as is the sig­na­ture Green Beast with Pernod ab­sinthe, lime, sugar, wa­ter and cu­cum­ber. The bar snacks are an­other high­light, with the fried oys­ters in mini-brioche buns and Parme­san cus­tard with an­chovy toast the per­fect briny ac­com­pa­ni­ments to the strong li­ba­tions.
