Salon de Ning

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

Sul­trily tucked away in the base­ment of The Penin­sula, Salon de Ning is named af­ter a fic­tional 1930s Shang­hai so­cialite. The lush interiors are mod­elled af­ter her abode and jet-set­ting des­ti­na­tions—think retro-luxe art deco, with rooms re­sem­bling a so­phis­ti­cated boudoir, an African sa­fari tent, a Moroc­can al­cove and a Swiss chalet, com­plete with faux fire­place. Go for a cock­tail that matches the decor (such as King of the Jun­gle or Alpine Roy­alty) or opt for the refreshing sig­na­ture cock­tail, the Ning Sling— Ab­so­lut Man­darin vodka and Kwai Feh ly­chee liqueur fused with pas­sion­fruit purée and fresh mint. Cham­pagnes go well with the home­made lob­ster crack­ers, which pack a briny umami crunch. For more sub­stan­tial snack­ing, feast on the de­li­cious grilled bone­ham Gruyère sand­wiches or pan-fried Mary­land crab cakes with cit­rus mous­se­line.
