Hong Kong is getting a secret salon this August, inspired by Britain’s cultural icons.
Aptly named Hugger Mugger, the hidden bar is the latest venture of the Pirata Group (Pirata, The Optimist, TokyoLima, Pici, MEATS, Chifa and Madame Ching).
The cocktail menu will feature a range of classic and bespoke creations, such as a selection of Ian Fleming-inspired ‘shaken not stirred’ dry martinis; the Money, named after Pink Floyd’s hit single; and Charlie Chaplin’s favourite tipple, a mixture of apricot brandy, slow gin and a squeeze of fresh lime.
Step through the red door in Hong Kong’s bustling new Central cultural district, head down the stairs and be transported to London in the 1970s. British racing green leather sofas, warm timbers, natural stone and brass fixtures will create a nostalgic yet stylish space.
With the finishing touches being placed on the venue, Pirata Group still has one surprise up its sleeve. On the far side of the salon will be a hand-carved wooden door; cross the threshold and you’ll discover a ‘world of unexpected surprises’…
Hugger Mugger is set to open mid-August.
