Earlier this year, I worked in Shanghai for 3 months at DDB. Lucky for me, my boss, Michelle, turned out to be one of the nicest and amazing women I know. Even luckier, was that between the time I went home from DDB and came to Hong Kong, she had moved to the DDB Hong Kong office. It is owing to Michelle (centre, below) that I have found my favourite cocktail bar in Hong Kong and who you can all thank for this great tip!
Feather Boa is located on Staunton St in Soho on HK Island. The front of the building is unmarked so it can be a little hard to find but look for the building with curtains across its windows which a lady opens occasionally when people knock. Whilst all the drinks are amazing, Feather Boa is known to serve the city’s best strawberry daiquiris, and believe me, they are insanely good! Even my lantern Elmo loves them!
Another favourite among my friends is the Malteser Martini. Yes, they have done it. Taken two of the world’s best inventions and put them together! Whilst not on the list of gluten-free things, and thus not for me, I have been assured by many of my friends that they are simply divine. I cannot wait for Janma to get here and have one – I’ll keep you posted on her thoughts!
If you are in Hong Kong, I cannot recommend this place enough for either a girls night out over great cocktails or even just a stop-through to see what it is all about! If your here before mid-December you may even see me there, its an understatement to say I’m addicted to the place!
