I don't mean to sound like a cheapskate, but apparently, a lot of bars and clubs in Hong Kong are now charging upwards of $150 ~ $200 for a cocktail. On an International Scale this might not sound too overboard but the major difference lies in whether the cocktails really deliver in the taste. And a lot of them don’t perform that well either, sad but true.
Bar Area -
CIPE has recruited a young and ambitious Cocktail Bartender. He is capable of mixing up some of the more molecular cocktails, but since this is a new bar opening, they will be gradually building towards that direction. And get this - cocktails here start at only $75-85. Around half price of some of the other bars and restaurants and clubs within walking distance from here.
Our Cocktails -
The Bartender uses a straw in a hygienic way, to test every one of his cocktails being served to customers 1st. This is what I call real Quality Control. The fizzy sparkling cocktail drink was pretty girly yet decent. The Mojito like cocktail was also balanced, but with a twist on it's own. Quite refreshing in the summery heat! And at this price point, one can't really go wrong... The lady owner here is accommodative and looks after the customers well too! Talk about personal touch
