Whisky@Stables After the Horses Bolt

[20/01/15] 

Despite its glitzy malls and shimmering neon-clad skyscrapers, Hong Kong has a rich architectural heritage, and many of the landmarks of that legacy are retired law enforcement compounds.

 From the former police married quarters in SoHo, now a savvy arts hub, to the Central Police Station on Hollywood Road, presently being restored to its past glory, it’s easier than ever to enjoy a tipple in a former cop shop.

Which brings us to Whisky@Stables, the city’s newest firewater haven and the only whisky bar in town housed in a former stable. Located at Hullett House’s Stables Grill, within the old marine police barracks in Tsim Sha Tsui, the new watering hole features salvaged wood panelling, vintage furnishing, and lavish, dark brown leather chesterfields in a space lit by bronze chandeliers. The spacious terrace will prove popular as the weather warms up, but until then, you’ll have to make do with a warming tipple from the extensive, 100-strong whisky collection. Signature blends and single malts from Scotland are joined by award-wining drops from Sweden, Japan, Taiwan, and even India. There are ten whiskies from small batch distilleries for connoisseurs and even whisky-laced cocktails – including the Black Belt, with smoked bitters, Okinawan black sugar, and a last-minute smoke infusion - if you’re working your way up to the hard stuff. A whisky-inspired menu features everything from chocolate-dipped bacon to pumpkin pie with bourbon-ice cream and dishes can be matched to signature drops by the resident mixologists. So good it should be illegal.
