Neo Keep Your Friends Closer


Proximity is one factor that controls the human race.

A whopping 40 percent of the world’s population lives within 100km of the coast. Even in Hong Kong many of us congregate towards the same neighbourhoods, and even the same streets. Proximity is about familiarity, about access to necessities, about seeking comfort.

So it’s only natural that the talented brothers behind Cocotte in NoHo, home to one of the city’s best brunch offerings as well as a haven for fine French fare after dark, has opened the restaurant’s ‘naughty little sister’ (and we all love those) across the lane in the form of Neo. Not to be confused with Keanu Reeves, Neo is the city’s newest artisanal cocktail club and one that aims to be the ultimate pre-clubbing locale. With stylish retro interiors and resident DJs, Neo is set to bring a touch of sexy appeal to the Shin Hing steps, thanks in part to a cocktail menu laced with unique drops, from pineapple-infused Jamaican overproof rum, and ginger honey water mescal, to homemade cider vinegar syrup bitters, which add a pleasant kick to the bar’s signature concoctions. These tipples are matches with a savvy bar menu featuring the likes of tartines open sandwiches and a selection of signature brochettes. The great thing is if you get really hungry, Cocotte is only steps away.

Because minutes matter.
