Forget New York, head to Hong Kong! The iconic New York cocktail bar ‘Please Don’t Tell’ (PDT)
Forget New York, head to Hong Kong! The iconic New York cocktail bar ‘Please Don’t Tell’ (PDT)has recently opened a stylish and intimate 25-seater space at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong. PDT has been a New York favourite due to its secret phone booth entrance, distinctive interiors, and creative cocktails. PDT Hong Kong will be the first permanent PDT outside of Manhattan.
Located on the mezzanine above MO Bar, the hotel’s vibrant all-day-dining venue, PDT Hong Kong follows the tradition of the original: guests will enter through an entrance disguised by a phone booth at the top of the staircase. Designed by Nelson Chow, the interior maintains key elements of PDT NYC such as the copper bar top, herringbone patterned wood ceiling and taxidermy, but each asset has been given a playful spin.
PDT Hong Kong’s drinks menu features 15 cocktails including a mix of PDT classics and new creations. These new offerings including the ‘Big Fan”, a refreshing shandy served with Cabeza tequila, lime juice, pink peppercorn, guava and Moonzen Fuijan radler; the ‘Bad Hunter’ a John Collins prepared with Chivas blended Scotch whisky, Fernet Hunter, lemon juice, dragon’s eye and Moët Brut Imperial Champagne; and the ‘Milky Tea Punch’, a rich flip composed of Ron Zacapa Centenario rum, Hennessy V.S.O.P. cognac, Rickshaw tea, condensed milk, Tayouran egg and Angostura bitters. The cocktails are supplemented with a selection of regional beers, wines and non-alcoholic options.
PDT is open Monday to Saturday, 5pm onwards.
