Wyndham the 4th
There’s a buzz amongst Hong Kong’s cocktail aficionados, and for a very good reason. With its sultry looks and HK Bartender of the Year Tom Wood at the helm, the city’s newest lounge Wyndham the 4th is fast becoming the go-to destination for creative blends, vintage tunes and good, old-fashioned hootenanny.
Set high aloft the pulsing Wyndham Street throng, the gloriously low-lit, sepia-tinted lounge thrums to a soundtrack of Sinatra, while the elegantly decorated space of white leather, black and gold-striped sofas, and library features portraits of Parisian sirens along the walls.
Both spacious and intimate, modern-inflected and vintage-inspired, the vibe is sophisticated yet comfortable with an outdoor terrace and libations that are as cheeky and innovative as the award-winning mixologist who crafted them. Must-tries include the Morning Glory Fizz of Johnnie Walker, Absinthe, lemon and soda, and of course the concoction that won Wood the title - the Dutch Book, a heady mix of vodka, truffle, almond-infused sherry and Amaro Montenegro.
Between the bartending prizes and well-heeled patrons, Wyndham the 4th’s guest list is growing day by day, so to score a coveted seat at the bar be sure to book well and dress to impress, otherwise prepare to queue.
