Not exactly new (it opened in May 2023) but certainly noteworthy - Bar Leone is still going strong and remains a permanent fixture on the Hong Kong hotspot list. The brainchild of the charismatic Lorenzo Antinori, previously at the helm of Argo (Four Seasons Hong Kong) and The American Bar at The Savoy, Bar Leone is reminiscent of traditional Roman bars. Expect a boisterous atmosphere (and to wait at least 1.5 hours for a table at peak hours on a weekend, they take no reservations), amazing and classic cocktails with a twist (strongly recommend the yuzu Negroni) and hearty bar food like the delectable Roman stuffed pizza with mortadella and ricotta.
Opening hours: Tuesday - Sunday, 5pm till late
Bar Leone, G/F, 11-15 Bridges Street, Central, https://www.instagram.com/barleonehk/
