1920's Inspired Cocktail Night at W's Woobar (Open Bar)

A few Thursday's back I headed to Woobar in W Hong Kong in West Kowloon for birthday celebrations with some of the girls. We went to the 1920's inspired vintage cocktail night which they host every Thursday from 8-10.30pm. It's 258dollars (about £22) for an open bar with a selection of 6 vintage cocktails.

Open bar, vintage, cocktails. Needless to say I was sold on the night before I arrived. (Picture taken from

Woobar is a great location for this event, its elegant and glamorous decor instantly adds a bit of sparkle to week night drinks, and the prohibition inspired vintage theme gives the night a very of the moment 'Gatsby-esque' flair. The presentation of the cocktails and snacks are excellent, and the staff were attentive and lovely.

The food platter is an extra $40 (about £3.40) and includes a selection of seven different snacks. My favourite presentation-wise had to be the malt meringue rocks which came with a syringe filled with 80% Stroh rum, the theme is prohibition after all!

My favourite cocktail was the Moscow Mule, made with belvedere vodka, in-house made ginger beer and a squeeze of lime. Although I sampled some of the other cocktails on the menu (I also highly recommend the Clover Club), at the end of the night I came back to this classic. Refreshing and simple, the Moscow Mule is undoubtedly one of my all time favourite cocktails so I was delighted to see it on this open bar menu. Woobar do a fabulous take on it for their vintage night, served in a silver W mug.

As well as coming back for another cocktail night, I am also eager to try out Woobar's unlimited wine and cheese night held on Wednesday's and their 'femme fatal' themed night held every Tuesday - free-flow Chandon Brut N.V for the ladies!

Offers on wine, cheese, champagne and vintage cocktails. They certainly have good taste at W!
