The new Pacific Bar has switched to a more dynamic design while preserving an air of elegance.
HONG KONG — Having established itself as one of the most iconic social destinations in Hong Kong, Pacific Bar at Conrad Hong Kong was renovated recently to welcome guests with a new image. In an interior space which maintains its elegant spirit but is given a stylish edge, visitors are able to sample an extended selection of foods and beverages, from gins to cocktails to wines. These novel touches show the Bar has solidified its position as a place where everyone can be inspired and express their personality.
The new Pacific Bar has switched to a more dynamic design while preserving an air of elegance. The contemporary ambience underlines its location at the financial heart of Hong Kong, and this sensibility is echoed by the fashionable new furniture pieces. At the same time, the spectacular metropolitan views are still accessible to visitors through the large windows, providing the Bar a fantastic changing backdrop depending on the time of the day.
Building on their reputation for making delicious cocktails, the mixologists at Pacific Bar undertook much research and concocted three new beverages. For this reason, all of them carry a nostalgic charm, crafted with deft skills. In Smoked Negroni, the combination of Beefeater gin, Campari, vermouth and mezcal is served in a glass bottle along with a cloud of smoke. Mediterranean-inspired Sorrento is made with limoncello, Aperol, grapefruit and lime juice, with a layer of rosemary and Champagne foam on top like the most sophisticated summer breeze. Scent of Fall boasts an unparalleled complexity as it features sous-vide chrysanthemum gin, green chartreuse and sherry with lemon juice, osmanthus syrup, honey and egg white.
Among the exciting new elements is the introduction of the gin trolley. It boasts an ever-changing line-up with varieties from England to Japan, from Finland to the unique blend made in Hong Kong. In addition, the trolley highlights a personal touch which allows guests to customise their drinks and add the garnishes they prefer. They can also learn up-close about all the bottles as well as the creative ways they are served at the Bar. The Happy ‘GIN’ Hours promotion gives them further opportunities to immerse themselves in the world of gin.
The much-loved wine and cheese library remains an integral part of the Bar. Its wide selection of premium wines — available by bottle or by glass — encompass red, white, rose, champagne and prosecco produced from various terroirs, ensuring every guest would find a bottle to their palate. By the same token, the cheese room also stocks cheeses with a mix of origins, degrees of hardness for different levels of appreciation.
Such a lavish food and drink lineup makes Pacific Bar an ideal place to unwind before or after a delightful dinner at the adjacent restaurants, all accomplished in front of the dazzling Hong Kong skyline. “The renovation is an important milestone for Pacific Bar and Conrad Hong Kong. With the new design and enriched menu, the Bar will continue to provide excellent service to the guests of the hotel,” said Thomas Hoeborn, General Manager, Conrad Hong Kong.
