Four Seasons Hong Kong presents a slew of new openings, renovations and updates, with the launch of Argo being one of Hong Kong’s most highly anticipated bar openings of the year. Replacing the beloved Blue Bar, Argo joins the hotel’s line-up of Michelin-starred establishments with a vibrant and welcoming space designed by AB Concept. Based on a conservatory, sleek curvature is accented with small terrariums, lightbulbs and mirrors, merging an earthy, natural landscape with innovative, future-forward twists. This sentiment is also reflected across the thoughtful and innovative cocktail menu, directed by the Four Seasons beverage manager Lorenzo Antinori and supported by head bartender Yvonne Chan.
Argo is a space driven by curiosity...We hope to trigger curiosity, excitement and open a new window on how spirits have been seen traditionally.

Taking guests on an invigorating journey of discovery and innovation, the debut menu titled “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow” spotlights six key ingredients that may become endangered in the future, including cacao, honey, vanilla, apple, coffee and rice. With sustainability ingrained across the menu concept, Argo partnered with local bee farm HK Raw Honey and cacao farm Chocolate Concierge in Malaysia for ethical and sustainable ingredients to create their innovative drinks, while also sourcing honey from their very own bee farm in Hong Kong, which produces mono-floral lychee and longan honey.
The expansive cocktail selection will also feature a rotating component, “Canvas”, highlighting seasonal creations and innovative collaborations, while the “Field Guide to the World’s Innovative Spirits”, offers a vast library of unique and groundbreaking spirits, including Argo’s very own gin, crafted with award-winning Australian distillery Never Never Distilling Co.
The launch of Argo also coincides with a thrilling revamp of Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, where guest rooms and suites have been completely redesigned for a new air of heightened luxury. The rooms reflect Hong Kong as a city, with a layered living experience where tradition meets modernity, designed by Remedios Studio. Adorned with traditional Chinese landscape paintings, the spaces are modernised with the latest technology, while Chinese design elements also work to capture the rich culture and heritage of Hong Kong.
Those wishing to experience the revamped rooms and Hong Kong’s hottest new bar concept can explore the Summer at Four Seasons staycation, a delightful and holistic summer package offering a tranquil escape from the city. Guests can destress by the infinity pool with scenic views of Victoria Harbour, or restore their body and mind at the spa with an inclusive 2 hour and 30 minute treatment including Tone and Detox and Craniosacral therapy. After relaxing and unwinding, chow down on an afternoon tea set in collaboration with luxury skincare brand Chantecaille or spend your HK$800 inclusive dining credit at The Lounge, or 3 Michelin-starred Lung King Heen.
