Legendary New York Cocktail Bar ‘PDT’ Opens Today at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

February 1, 2018 Luxury Hotels No Comments Email Email

The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is delighted to announce the opening of its new bar concept – PDT, a stylish, intimate cocktail bar seating 25 guests, a unique collaboration with the operators of the iconic New York cocktail bar PDT (Please Don’t Tell).

Regularly voted among the World’s Best Bars, PDT has long been a favourite of New Yorkers who enjoy its secret phone booth entrance, distinctive interiors, and creative cocktails developed by renowned mixologists Jim Meehan, Jeff Bell and their talented bar team.  PDT Hong Kong will be the first permanent PDT outside of New York City.

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. 

“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.

PDT Hong Kong’s drinks menu features 15 cocktails including a mix of PDT classics and new creations crafted especially for Hong Kong. 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 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 Hong Kong’s food menu is Chef Richard Ekkebus’ take on American comfort foods. “My team and I have developed artisanal frankfurters with free-range pork, chicken and beef from sustainable sources.” The menu features the bacon-wrapped, deep-fried pork dog with Kimchi from the New York menu while new creations for PDT Hong Kong include the ‘Honkie Dog’ fried pork dog with sakura shrimp and XO mayo.  Not to be missed is the Okonomiyaki-style tater tots topped with kewpie mayonnaise, takoyaki sauce, shredded nori, bonito shavings and scallions.

PDT Hong Kong opening hours:

Monday to Thursday                 5pm to 1am           

Friday & Saturday                     5pm to 1:30am
