If you ever visit Hong Kong and are looking for a nice place to relax, wind down with drinks and a few friends, then make sure you request an invitation to visit Joseph Boroski's latest cocktail lounge! Why you ask? Firstly, it is designed by Australian designer - Ashley Sutton and secondly J. Boroski, who calls himself a "Mixsultant" makes the best drinks for his guests! Follow me through my unforgettable cocktail experience...
I was delighted to receive my invitation and couldn't wait to visit this place already! A few friends and I got to this secret location at a good time, as we were welcomed inside the interior with plenty of seats to choose from. (Note: only 2 people are allowed for a bar seat, more than that you will be seated on comfy, leather chairs and a candle lit table.)
I wasn't sure what I was expecting before coming in here but we were warmly welcomed by the hosts and I was at ease. In fact, the longer I was in there, the more comfortable I felt. The lighting was the perfect amount, not so dark and not so bright. I liked how the walls and floors were curved together to create a tunnel-like interior. There are also VIP areas created with fine, black string curtains which gives off a mysterious ambience. The rustic decor and colours made the atmosphere quite ancient-like but with a hint of elegance.
The drinks - We were asked what our preferences were, fruity or sweet, alcoholic or non or bartender surprise, you get the gist. When our drinks came, I secretly felt special because I was given a drink that was made specifically for me, a unique flavour that no-one will get to taste - just me. And boy it definitely impressed! I loved it, and so did my friends. We ordered another round of drinks and chatted with the bartenders - everyone was so cool, full of character, it was as if we've known each other for awhile.
My overall experience was one-of-a-kind. We were well looked after, the place wasn't loud. We got to meet J. Boroski himself, and we were told that he's only in here once or twice every 2-3 months! I felt like a VIP throughout the night and by the end of it, we left the place getting told that we are now a member of the J. Boroski Cocktail lounge! (How cool does that sound!?)
