Don’t look now – PDT set in open in Hong Kong

THURSDAY, December 14, 2017

The Landmark Mandarin Oriental is all set to add a blast to Hong Kong’s nightlife with the opening early next year of a branch of iconic New York cocktail bar PDT (Please Don’t Tell).

The bar, the first permanent PDT outside the Big Apple, will serve a wide range of creative cocktails developed by renowned mixologists Jim Meehan and Jeff Bell, along with their talented team.

Following in the tradition of the original, guests will enter the Hong Kong space through a hidden entrance disguised as a phone booth in the hotel’s MO Bar. The interiors flow from the pen of n of Hong Kong designer-of-the-moment, Nelson Chow, and will be a playful mix of vintage and modern classics, with a nod to the bar’s New York roots seen in the selection of eclectic taxidermy on the walls.

The bar also introduces a creative culinary partnership with the city’s leading and most acclaimed chefs, which will be rotated each season. The inaugural free-range pork, chicken and beef hotdog has been created by the hotel’s celebrated culinary director, Richard Ekkebus and further food offerings will be his take on American comfort foods.
