A touch of Spain in Hong Kong Soho, Hong Kong

Check out the Wise King, a Hong Kong cocktail bar inspired by a Spanish fable. Legend has it that King Alfonso X, The Wise, was instructed to have small amounts of wine and snacks between meals to recover from an illness, prompting the birth of tapas. This is the theme behind the doors of this great bar.

It takes its design cues from the thirteenth century – think hues of gold, brown and red – including lush velvets and decorative brocade. The kitchen delivers a menu of bite-sized nibbles with Spanish, Moroccan and Italian influences, as well as modern takes on cocktails. Pair your patatas bravas with the bar’s take on a whisky sour, the Turron Sour.
