Home to a breathtaking view of Hong Kong’s harbour and a rustic – yet refined – greenhouse aesthetic, Glasshouse fuses fanciful Asian and Western flavours effortlessly to come up with a bar and restaurant worth admiring as much as the view. The country cottage greenhouse theme runs deep at Glasshouse, as around every corner you will spot charming effects like faded terracotta planting pots, wooden wheel-barrows, and other garden accessories. As a result, regardless of the weather outside, you get the feeling of a spring afternoon inside Glasshouse, and the cocktail list created by award-winning mixologist Jimmy Yeung picks up and runs with the theme. Examples of the fresh fusion of East and West on the cocktail list include the Golden Triangle, a mix of white rum infused with curry leaves, peach and apricot liquors, and topped with molecular ginger beer foam. Then there’s the Asia Peninsula, which hypnotises with gin, liqueur, lychee and elderflower. Classics like Mojitos and Singapore Slings are also poured along with a vast collection of Italian wine. As far as the kitchen is concerned, it keeps up its end of the bargain with dishes that are European in their roots, but are flavoured and garnished with Asian spice. The menu is organised around the concept of “sharing bites” and is the ideal complement to the stimulating cocktails and stunning vista of the world famous Hong Kong harbour.
