With the third wave of Covid-19, bars are closed and your flat is suddenly the hottest spot in town (again). Thankfully, many Hong Kong bars are now able to provide takeaway and delivery cocktails. So, make the most of your social isolation with a tipple or two from your favourite bars.
Grab a bottled cocktail from COA, and enjoy one of Asia’s 50 Best bars from the comfort of your own flat. They have several to choose from, though we recommend the Agave Old Fashioned or the Mezcal Negroni. They’re even offering free delivery on orders over HK$700.
Fans of this intimate spot – named The Best Bar in Asia last year – can take advantage of their new delivery menu. They’re offering six of their most popular pours, including The Sun Also Rises #1926, Garden of Eden #1985 and Old Fashioned – Clear. Each cocktail is available in individual or batch pours, which can contain up to 20 servings. Order at least one day in advance.

Though it has temporarily assumed a new identity as “The Diplomat Café” during social distancing, the institution formerly known as ‘The Diplomat’ is still serving up some of the best cocktails in town. To-go, of course. Stop by to pick up one of their wax-sealed creations. They have everything from classic cocktails, to inventive punches, and even Champagne. Their Instagram highlights have a full list.
Want to host your own homebar? Fret not, resident gin parlour Ori-Gin is back again with their online shop to deliver right to your door.

Let’s make #bringzumahome a trend: the Japanese izakaya in Landmark Central is bringing their cocktails and wines to you at the comfort of your home. Cocktails like the Endu margarita and Honda negroni are priced at HK$80 and the minimum order for takeaway is HK$500, but we’re sure that won’t be an issue!
