Hottest bar openings in October 2017

6th November, 2017 by Michael J Ritchie

Yojimbo, Hong Kong

Designer Ashley Sutton has taken inspiration from Japan, specifically Tokyo’s Ginza district, with his new bar, Yojimbo, now open in Hong Kong and described as a “Japan-inspired fantasyland”. When entering the new club, guests find themselves in a “minimalistic yet intimate cocktail lounge that evokes some of the tiny, hole-in-the-wall bars found in Ginza”.

At the centre of the club is an 248 sq ft island bar that houses an elevated stage for live shows. Performers include geishas, samurai schoolgirls, Harajuku punks, Hannya girls and anime-inspired spirits.

The signature cocktail menu is also inspired by Japan, with offerings including Ninja Shadow (caviar-infused Belvedere vodka, lemon, white port, elderflower, plum bitters and salt) and Yojimbo (sake, gin, yuzu juice, grapefruit bitters, Champagne and edible flowers).
