If you think Hong Kong bars are too stuffy or plain, Causeway Bay’s latest opening might be just what you’re after.
Shaking things up in Fashion Walk, The Artist House is a new bar and coffeeshop by craft beer company The Artist. The location touts a number of fancy features including an infusion-based microbrewery that supposedly lets drinkers customise their beer, a fragrance lab where you can tweak your beer’s aroma, a hydroponic aqua-farm and much more. If it’s too early for a beer, the coffee is equally fancy with farm-to-cup beans and a cold brewing systems all in place. And if you’re peckish, there are intriguing-sounding pastries ‘based on craft beer ingredients’. Did we mention there are bean bags too? Very Google-esque – now that’s high tech.
If you’re curious to check the place out in person, just beware: The Artist House currently closes at 6pm and isn’t open on weekends. Be sure to plan accordingly.
