Top Places to See & Be Scene this Summer

Belon
41-43 Elgin Street, SoHo • +852 2152 2872
Putting the oh (la-la) into Soho, this neo-Parisian bistro is yet another offering from the Black Sheep behemoth. The dining room is light, bright and incredibly chic and service is impeccable. Settle into one of the navy banquettes, order the sweet potato waffle topped with sea urchin followed by the whole herb-stuffed roast chicken and the heavenly millefeuille and thank us later.

 

Foxglove
2/F, Printing House, 6 Duddell Street • +852 2116 8949
In the mood for martinis and mischief? Head to the umbrella shop on Ice House Street, mosey on through to the Mad Men-esque, low lit lounge and get liquored up while listening to live jazz and grazing on delicious nibbles.

A Side B Side
53 Sai Street, Sheung Wan • +852 2857 5055
At the risk of irritating all of HK’s hippest foodies, we’re here to let you into the city’s best-kept culinary secret – A Side B Side. The team behind Po’s Atelier have branched out from bread to set up a petite twenty-seater on the fringes of Sheung Wan, and boy is it awesome. Simple Hong Kong-sourced farm to table food, a carefully curated selection of organic, natural wines and a turntable spinning laidback tunes. Keep it to yourself though…

Winstons Coffee
213 Queen’s Road West, Sai Ying Pun • +852 2559 5078
As any bona fide beans boffin will tell you, if coffee’s your poison, then Winstons Coffee deserves a top spot in your little black book. Guaranteed to keep you on a caffeine high from 7am lattes to 11pm espresso martinis, this hole in the wall corner spot is buzzing from dawn til dusk.

Beef & Liberty Pop-Up
PMQ, Central
Popping-up in PMQ for one summer only, Beef & Liberty combines bacon cheeseburgers, icy craft beers, knock-your-socks-off cocktails and live music to deadly effect.

Bitters & Sweets
1/F, Somptueux Central, 52-54 Wellington Street, Central • +852 2788 0103
Mixology magic with a side of wickedly indulgent dessert – does it get much better? With sofas begging to be sprawled on and craft cocktails potent enough to have you sprawling quicker than you can say ‘same again’, there’s nothing for it but to line your stomach with a skillet of melted marshmallow and molten chocolate with a side of graham crackers…

Buenos Aires Polo Club
7/F LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham Street, Central • +852 2321 8681
The Black Sheep Crew serve up their third new opening of the year, and this one’s hotter than Rupert Campbell-Black in a pair of white polo pants… Think a temple to Argentinian steak, vermouth cocktails and elite members only club elegance – a recipe for scrumptious South-American style summer nights.

Potato Head
G/F, 100 Third Street, Sai Ying Pun • +852 2858 3036
Love Balinese beachside beauty, Potato Head? Well, we have excellent news. June sees the Potato landing slap bang in the middle of the skyscrapers in the heart of Sai Ying Pun. With mouthwatering Indonesian cuisine, rocking music, killer cocktails and stunning interiors, we’re pretty confident it’ll be the summer’s hottest spot.
