Jetset Report: Masters of Mixology at Hong Kong's Mandarin Oriental

MO Bar at the Landmark Mandarin OrientalLook out, Hong Kong. Some of the world’s best mixologists--hailing from New York, Tokyo and Melbourne--will descend on the MO Bar at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental to shake things up for the three-day Masters of Mixology event. Taking place on June 15-17, the annual extravaganza attracts trendsetting cocktail connoisseurs eager to taste the finest tipples made with luxury ingredients. This year’s bartenders have worked in some of the best bars in the world (like Milk and Honey, Little Branch, Death and Company, wd-50, Spring Lounge, PDT, Little Smith and Radio Bar).

New this year: a special dinner with cocktail pairings served upstairs. Each of the courses (five in total) will be paired with a high-end cocktail prepared tableside by a different bartender- a theatrical experience showcasing cutting-edge techniques. Note: There’s only one table available, so act fast! The five-course dinner for 12 people, including five exceptional cocktails, costs HKD 14,500.

The Landmark Mandarin Oriental is a preferred Hong Kong address with 113 contemporary-style guest rooms that are some of the largest in the city- averaging 540 square feet. The hotel is also home to The Oriental Spa, an award-winning facility that spans two floors and features a Pilates and Yoga studio, and Amber restaurant, ranked in the recent S. Pellegrino “World’s 50 Best Restaurants” awards.
