The Con­ti­nen­tal

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

This busi­ness lunch spot in Pa­cific Place boasts a cock­tail list that’s well worth a visit. The Con­ti­nen­tal of­fers just re­wards for those ven­tur­ing to Pa­cific Place. Be­neath Thomas Heather­wick’s swirling ceil­ing de­sign, an el­e­gant, emer­ald-hued bar in­vites pa­trons to set­tle in and sam­ple cock­tails from the list con­ceived by mixol­ogy mae­stro Ti­mothee Bec­que­ri­aux (whose iconic mous­tache also adorns the menu). Sig­na­tures are in­no­va­tive and play­fully named – take the Stran­gled Par­rot, for ex­am­ple: Tan­queray gin shaken with basil, lime and pep­per, as well as an al­lur­ing twist of choco­late ab­sinthe. If noth­ing on the list tan­ta­lises, let the sa­vant staff con­coct some­thing to your tastes or, if you’re feel­ing ad­ven­tur­ous, fol­low the green fairy through the com­pre­hen­sive list of ab­sinthe drips.
