The Cocktail Lovers love our cocktails!

Posted on August 27, 2014

When our bars manager Myles Donneky launched our new cocktail list earlier this year, we were quietly confident that his innovative bing cha or ‘iced tea’ cocktails and Chinese-influenced classics and new creations would be popular with our guests – and that’s certainly proved to be the case!

Nonetheless we were still overwhelmed when the UK’s leading magazine for cocktail connoisseurs, The Cocktail Lovers, visited the Shanghai Bar to sample some of the list and it resulted in a glowing, not to mention very comprehensive, review.

From the ‘wonderfully enticing fusions’ of the bing cha to the ‘sweet earthiness’ of the Hutong Julep, The Cocktail Lovers sampled many of Myles’ creations, concluding that, “the new menu at Hutong manages to be creative and innovative without losing sight of what a good cocktail should be: a glorious combination of flavours that make your taste buds cheer.”

We are very happy that they thought so – and hope that you will join us in the Shanghai Bar soon to discover the new cocktail list for yourself!

The Shanghai Bar is open every day from 12 noon until midnight; no reservations are needed, or taken. Bar snacks are available at all times and a selection of dim sum is available from 1pm to 5pm daily.
