Iconic NYC bar to open in Hong Kong

New York’s iconic cocktail bar PDT (Please Don’t Tell) is opening a new branch in Hong Kong inside The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel in early 2018, the first permanent PDT outside of New York City.

Regularly voted among the World’s Best Bars, PDT has long been a favoruite hangout for New Yorkers, who enjoy its privacy with cocktails developed by renowned mixologists Jim Meehan and Jeff Bell, along with their bar team.

Following in the tradition of the original PDT, guests will enter the Hong Kong space through a hidden entrance disguised as a phone booth in the hotel’s MO Bar.

The interiors are designed by local designer Nelson Chow, and will be a playful mix of vintage and modern classics, with a nod to its New York roots seen in the selection of eclectic taxidermy on the walls.

“It is extremely exciting to be collaborating with the immensely talented Jim Meehan and Jeff Bell for their first venture outside of the States. After hosting PDT’s pop-up as part of our Masters of Mixology programme last year, we recognised that PDT would be a perfect permanent fit for us” said Torsten van Dullemen, general manager of The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong.

The cocktail menu will change frequently throughout the year to take advantage of seasonal produce and limited-edition wines, beers and spirits. A handful of house cocktails designed by original PDT, such as the Benton’s Old Fashioned, Shark and Mezcal Mule will be on offer at the Hong Kong outlet as well.

The hotel’s culinary director, Richard Ekkebus will also churn out dishes with his interpretations of American comfort foods.

The bar will have a seating capacity of 30 people and be open daily from 5pm.
