New cocktail menus to try in HK this summer

Lobster Bar and Grill

Being named one of ‘Asia’s 50 Best Bars’ from 2016 to 2020, Lobster Bar and Grill is keen on bringing a new cocktail experience to customers. Bar manager Bob Louison has delved through the history books to create a unique cocktail menu, entitled ‘The Archivist’, which unveils an adventurous journey through centuries of cocktail renaissance. The menu comes in two chapters. The first chapter presented to us now covers six past important eras, spanning from 17th century – the “Age of Punch” period when English sailors found new ways to replace their expired wines and beers – all the way to 1940s – the period where the 13-year prohibition was just over. The latter half, starting from that point onwards to contemporary times, is going to be showcased in the next chapter releasing this autumn.

Inspired by classic cocktails from bygone eras, the team of cocktailians has given each of the drinks a modern twist and a non-alcoholic alternative to reinterpret classics from around the world and throughout history, creating a collection of twelve unique and intriguing cocktails and six mocktails.

Address: 6/F, Island Shangri-La, Pacific Place, Supreme Court Road, Central, Hong Kong SAR
