Ping Pong 129 Gintonería

Ping Pong 129 Gintoneria put Sai Ying Pun on the map with its industrial-chic interiors and goblet-sized gin cocktails. Located in a former ping pong hall on Second Street, behind an unmarked red door, this speakeasy takes its cues from Spain, serving up tapas — tortillas, croquettes and salted padron peppers — alongside an extensive selection of gins, tonics and garnishes. The mid-century modern furniture, brushed concrete floors and now-iconic neon sign add flair to an otherwise cavernous space, while stripped-back walls are adorned with art by local creatives.

La Rambla By Catalunya’s Gin Cart

With one of the best outdoor terraces in Central, La Rambla By Catalunya delivers stellar sundowners with authentic Spanish food. Bringing Catalonian drinks culture to a 5,000 square foot dining space in the ifc, La Rambla is named after the famous tree-lined Barcelona boulevard. Its gin trolley holds more than 30 varieties of artisanal gins and 10 types of tonics, stirred up by a dedicated mixologist at the guests’ tables.

The New Punjab Club’s Gin Trolley

Michelin-starred tandoor grill house The New Punjab Club is influenced by the liberated era of post-colonial Pakistan and India, but their old-school gin trolley harkens back to earlier times. Manned by a dedicated bartender, its selection of smart gins and garnishes that include dried orange and lavender, are served up in a space that’s all embossed walls, leather banquettes and modern South Asian art. As this is a restaurant, the gin cocktails are best enjoyed with a tasty and tender kebab from the grill.

Artesian at The Langham 

The Langham’s Artesian has a collection of more than 43 different kinds of gins, that are available upon request — simply ask the bartender on duty for the gin menu. The space mirrors its London counterpart with 1920s glamour and traditional cocktails. With live music in the evenings, this is a worthy date-night destination in Tsim Sha Tsui.
