The new Hong Kong Cocktail Weeks is the perfect rationale to get out of that lock-down mentality and support the city’s bars and restaurants.
It’s been some dark months for the world, and for Hong Kong, where restrictions have severely impacted the city’s bar and restaurant industry. The first-ever Hong Kong Cocktail Weeks event (November 9 – December 10) hopes to alleviant some of that damage by getting punters out to support the city’s bars and restaurants and sip on unique libations in the process.
Nearly 30 bars and restaurants have joined Hong Kong Cocktail Weeks to offer almost 100 specially crafted cocktails, only available during the event period. Participating bars include whisky joints Kakure and Whisky & Words; and spots that love to incorporate coffee or tea into their drinks, like DoubleShot by Cupping Room, Tell Camellia, and Rest Coffee Gin, as well as innovative spaces like 001, The Poet, 11 Westside, and Rubia, just to name a few.
The initiative also comes with the support from various well-known spirit brands and mixologists such as Jade Lau, Gagan Gurung, and Wallace Lau.
The first week of the event will feature cocktails inspired by Johnnie Walker, followed by Copper Dog, Casamigos, Tanqueray, Hennessy V.S.O.P, Belvedere, Grey Goose, Patrón, and Avión in the second to fourth weeks.
There are two ticket tiers, the Bar Hopper Pass (HK$298) and the Bar Runner Pass (HK$458) allow guests to enjoy 3 or 5 cocktails, redeemable by simply scanning the QR code in the outlet. You can also top up your account (HK$80/token) through Hong Kong Cocktail Weeks’ top up system and are welcomed with a goodie bag on their first visit to any of Hong Kong Cocktail Weeks’ partner bars when your QR code is activated.
Your local bartender has always been there to listen to your whining and to hold their tongue through your bar-top pickup attempts. Isn’t it about time you gave a little back?
