While there are plenty of bars serving quality cocktails and plenty others offering a great shisha experience, the general consensus among the Hong Kong nightlife community is that it’s still relatively hard to find one that excels in both these realms.
Set to open in Central in early November is Awtar, a two story bar and lounge that aims to not only serve premium shisha and original cocktails, but also a top-quality authentic Mediterranean menu to match. Expect a wide range of flavoured tobacco imported from the United Arab Emirates coupled with fresh organic fruits in their dedicated outdoor sections along with a list of original cocktails prepared by experienced mixologists.
Their food menu will be Mediterranean, with an emphasis on Greek, Lebanese, Turkish and Southern European flavours that are light on meat but still vibrant in flavours.
