From the latest bar openings, to happy hours, new drinks menus and more, here’s where we’ll be drinking this month!
Halloween has been and gone and the weather is cooling down. But before gearing up for the holiday season ahead (and consuming far too much mulled wine!), there are plenty of new drinks deals, menus and specials to enjoy this November. From free-flow brunch deals, to drinks with a view and new happy hours, here’s where we’re drinking this month.
Open now in the heart of Causeway Bay, ZENG offers stunning views and creative cocktails. Found on the 30th floor of V Point, the new drinking and dining destination brings together influences from the East and the West. The 270-degree views of Victoria Harbour aren’t the only thing that’s going to be drawing guests in, with the bar serving an eclectic selection of beverages, including premium spirits and specially-shaken cocktails. Signature creations include the Chinese Old Fashioned, made with Chinese liquor infused with dried tangerine peel for an Asian twist on the classic. Enjoy your drinks on ZENG’s alfresco terrace, and treat yourself to some bar bites, including the likes of Jumbo Prawn Tempura.
