Buenos Aires Polo Club

Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Best of awards -

For an Ar­gen­tinian steak­house, there’s more to cel­e­brate than the ver­sa­til­ity of the South Amer­i­can bovine. The ac­claimed steak es­tab­lish­ment Buenos Aires Polo Club, one of Black Sheep Restau­rants’ most suc­cess­ful creations of 2016, is unique all on its own. Guests en­ter­ing the polo- and eques­tri­anthemed restau­rant will surely no­tice the win­dow­less in­te­ri­ors, equipped with emer­ald green walls and themed art­work— but it’s what’s be­hind the bar that re­ally of­fers a rea­son to cel­e­brate.

Tak­ing the helm of the mixol­ogy team is Luca Sergi, demon­strat­ing un­par­al­leled ex­per­tise in pair­ing ex­otic liqueurs, aper­i­tifs and flavour­ings in each of the restau­rant’s sig­na­ture cock­tails. The re­sult­ing tip­ples are distinc­tive in flavours and dis­til a ro­bust style of cre­ative mixol­ogy through the di­verse of­fer­ings.

At Buenos Aires Polo Club, the mixol­ogy team re­lies not on cir­cus tricks, but on their fa­mil­iar­ity with liquors, bit­ters and in­gre­di­ents in rein­vent­ing clas­sic cock­tails such as the Rob Roy, made with a pre­cise pro­por­tion of scotch, ver­mouth and an­gos­tura bit­ters; The Polo Club, a twist on the Pimm’s Cup by adding gin­ger and cham­pagne; and the cit­rusy twist in the Sin­ga­pore Sling, mix­ing gin, bit­ter Chi­nato and Béné­dic­tine.

The es­tab­lish­ment’s orig­i­nal creations are also fun-filled and vi­brant in flavours, such as El Anana y El Poni, which blends rum with Fer­net-Branca and pineap­ple, bring­ing forth sunny sweet­ness not un­like the trop­i­cal sun; and La Yegua Blanca, in which el­der­flower liqueur is mixed with gin­ger and zingy te­quila for a unique sen­sa­tion. With an ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion of tequi­las, mescals, whiskies and ver­mouths, we couldn’t think of a more stylish hot spot in town, where you can en­joy the per­fect tip­ple be­fore sink­ing your teeth into some of the finest Ar­gen­tinian steaks on of­fer.
