Lily & Bloom Restaurant & Bar Slick Speak Easy in LKF Tower

[25/08/10] 

Good cocktails, I mean really good cocktails, made with just the right measures of love and knowledge, and using the best ingredients possible, are hard to find in Hong Kong. Sure lots of places have cocktail lists, with fancy, sugar-rich, fluro-coloured concoctions (and a clientele that matches), but that's not what a real man of the world wants. We need good drinks made by good men, loyal to the mixology creed, complemented by sizable, satisfying man-snacks.

Lily, the upper half of the Volar Group's new restaurant and bar duo Lily & Bloom, which recently opened at the LKF Tower, serves a good cocktail. The well-versed bartenders stay true to the classics (the 23 year old Zacapa old fashioned is mixed to perfection), which go well with the bar's dark sexy interiors, created by Big Apple's design sensations AvroKO (look out for the secret whiskey room called the Blind Pig), and New Orleans-inspired snack menu.

Downstairs there are deep leather booths and a menu of 'modern American' cuisine with a relatively modern price tag. Will this place turn into another temple of wank? Quite possibly, so you'll be wise to get down there and order yourself a manly drink before economies of scale kick in.

“Bartender!”
