The Chinese Library
Chinese cuisine that spans the regions and splendid balconies overlooking the colonial-era complex of Tai Kwun. But the space needs special mention: housed beside sister restaurant Statement (modern British cuisine) and The Dispensary (cocktails, cocktails, cocktails), this 7,500-square-foot space is a rustically refined destination for any occasion.
Hong Kong isn’t short of rooftop bars, but here’s the latest, sexiest one to add to the list: this chilled-out terrace atop H Queen’s has the views, the loungy outdoor atmosphere and also the bites and drinks. The highlights: the Piqniq Baskets of dim sum, the charcuterie selection and the menu of signature tea-based cocktails such as the Matcha Harmony.
You might know about Foxglove, the speakeasy on Central’s Duddell Street. But inside, there’s a new surprise hidden behind a curtain: an alcove library with a travel theme and a special cocktail menu listing drinks inspired by different cultures. Try the Iryujon, a mix of sake, St Germaine, ginger syrup and yuzu juice, garnished with an edible flower.
