With a bird’s eye view on all the action in Lan Kwai Fong from its commanding patio, Lily is right at the heart of it all. The prohibition-style bar has dark, handsome interiors and attracts a well-groomed crowd. Lily’s menu of signature cocktails is imaginative and highlights concoctions that blend innovative infusions, bitters and premium spirits. We try their Chet Baker with a special wood barrel-aged rum, sweet vermouth and orange bitters – it’s a strong drink, but leaves a balanced aftertaste thanks to the trio of fragrant aromas. Chester’s Cup is sweet and fruity, without being sickly sugary. A light and frothy mix of vodka, elderflower, green apple, fresh lemon and ginger with a creamy cloud of foam, it goes down easily but packs a potent punch. Happy hours drinks comes with an offering of complimentary snacks, and Lily’s bar menu has a satisfying selection of sliders, fries sprinkled with umami-inducing Japanese sea salts, among other finger foods to line your bellies. For a formal sit-down meal, head down the winding staircase to their sister restaurant, Bloom. There’s also a separate cigar lounge by the entrance. Lily’s signature cocktails range from HK$115 to HK$150.
