There are light touches of  Hong Kong’s maritime past here: the “eye” of the bar referring to the kind that was painted on the prow of old Chinese junks to protect them from evil, while some old photos of Cantonese seadogs and the harbour in the 19th century adorn some wall space. But generally this is a place that embraces the high energy of modern city life. Windows that reach up to the very high ceiling look out across the harbour and across to Hong Kong island with stunning views. The colourful contemporary style furniture and jazzy carpet provides a decent cove if the weather isn’t playing ball. Otherwise the terrace that runs the length of the bar is the place to sit; stools by the high counter against the glass barrier of the balcony are the pick of places where the city’s nightly laser show and twinkling skyscrapers can be watched. There’s a telescope on hand if you want a closer look across the harbour, but the cocktail list deserves greater examination, too. Among the signature cocktails the punning Grape Expectations, is a favorite with gin, grapefruit, lime, vanilla and yoghurt liquere. The Calamansitini gives the southeast Asian citrus fruit a starring role in the piquant blend of gin-infused red tea, ginger, shisho syrup and the eponymous fruit. Martinis are 30% off each night between 6pm and 9pm. Asian fusion runs the bar snack menu with spring rolls, fried soft shell crab and chicken wings among others.
