From the latest bar openings, to happy hours, new drinks menus and more, cheers to these drink specials in the 852!
Another month has been and gone, and although the hot weather spell seems to have passed (for now!), we’re still looking to get out and have some drinks this month, whatever the weather. Negroni Week is already in full swing, with bars all over the city offering up special drinks for worthy causes, but there are also plenty of new deals, happy hours and bars to check out this month. Here’s where you’ll find us…
New to Pottinger Street comes Ruby, a late-night bar serving up thirsty Hong Kongers drinks until 2am every day from Monday to Saturday. Complete with a cracking happy hour (daily until 10pm!) with drinks starting at just $40, we’re sure it’ll become a popular spot for any night of the week. Signature cocktails include Espresso Martinis, Crème Brule Martinis and Chili Margaritas!

Summer is here, so what better drink is there to enjoy in the hot and sticky weather than an icy cold glass of frosé? After its roaring success last summer, Maison Libanaise is bringing back the refreshing concoction of churned frozen rosé wine and fresh raspberry purée for the warmer months and we’re more than excited to delve into a glass (or five). Priced at $48 for a glass, or $198 for a pitcher, you’ll know where to find us all summer long. And don’t forget to swing by the rooftop launch party this weekend, complete with reggae tunes and free-flow frosé!
