If you are still recovering from the Christmas and New Year’s drinks, try out LPM’s dry January “Une Petite Pause” menu. Classic cocktail mixes have been transformed into non-alcoholic versions. Highlights include the Nogroni Sbagliato crafted with non-alcoholic vermouth Rosso, Earl Grey tea, and gentian root, and the refreshing L’Orgeat, blended with non-alcoholic Amaretto, lemon, and toasted almonds. Just because there’s no alcohol in it doesn’t mean it’s any less enjoyable!

As part of The Park Lane Hong Kong’s fiftieth anniversary, the mixologists at Skye have curated a cocktail menu under the theme “Timeless Flavours.” It’s divided into “past,” “present,” and “future” categories to represent the hotel’s journey through the past five decades. Rolled out on a quarterly basis, patrons can begin 2024 with concoctions from the “past” section. Highlights include the Bo-Lo-Yau, a creamy blend of butterscotch that pays homage to buttery pineapple buns, and the French 57, a classic mix of elderflower and gin. Raise a toast!

Tucked away in the heart of the bustling Tsim Sha Tsui neighbourhood is 404 Not Found, a new addition to Hong Kong’s bar scene. The atmospheric venue is a laid-back hangout complete with an open bar, pool tables, and a cyberpunk-themed cocktail menu to reference its computer-network-inspired name. Highlights include the vodka-based Drunk 404 with lychee and spices, the gin-based HTTP 404 with rose tea, berries, and rose syrup, and the Error 404, which mixes green-apple-infused vodka with a hint of mustard. Pair your drinks with the signature unlimited Shake Shake fries!
