New bars and restaurants in Hong Kong: September 2020
10 Sep 2020
We are two weeks into September but there is still a lot of time for you to try out the newest dining destinations the city has to offer!
The Daily Tot
Paying homage to the age-old tradition of a tot (read: rum ration) for Royal Navy sailors is the newest Hollywood Road den The Daily Tot. Bringing a slice of home to the streets of Hong Kong, Carribean local Tiana Ludhani has partnered with bartending legend Gerry Olino whose CV includes stints at Dr Fern’s Gin Parlour and Foxglove. Designed as a sanctuary for those who enjoy a glass or two of Barbados Water (if you know, you know), the 1300 sq ft Cuban-themed bar boasts 11 signature cocktails and an impressive collection of rums sourced from distilleries all over the Caribbean.
