Starbucks is opening a Mixology Bar in Hong Kong
14 Jun 2018
Like the feral pigeon, Starbucks has colonised every city on the planet. And now this pigeon has evolved into a whole new species. Starbucks is opening its first ‘Teavana’ bar and ‘coffee-inspired mixology bar’, otherwise known as Starbucks® Teavana Bar and Mixology Bar. We aren’t exactly sure how to understand the official name, seeing as it repeats the word ‘bar’ twice. But with independent bars closing down in droves due to Hong Kong’s rent-hungry landlords, Starbucks’ metastasis into nightlife is only likely to make matters worse. For now, we can only wonder whether their cocktails will be as insipidly bland as their coffee.
On the other hand, if you can’t decide on your next date: “coffee or a cocktail?”, you’ve got your answer: try Winston's in Sai Ying Pun. Starbucks Hong Kong Flagship, Shop 101 - 110, 1/F, Lee Garden Three, 1 Sunning Road, Causeway Bay; starbucks.com.hk
