Your insider’s guide to Hong Kong

Best bar none

The first overseas location of one of the world’s best cocktail bars, PDT, will open soon at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental

Please Don't Tell

The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is delighted to announce a unique new bar concept in collaboration with the iconic New York cocktail bar, PDT (Please Don’t Tell).

Regularly voted World’s Best Bar, PDT has long been a favourite of New Yorkers who enjoy the intimate privacy of its distinctive interiors alongside cocktails created by admired mixologists Jim Meehan and Jeff Bell. PDT HK will open in early 2018, the first permanent PDT cocktail bar outside of the United States.

Guests will enter the Hong Kong space through a hidden entrance disguised as a phone booth in the hotel’s MO Bar. The interiors are the vision of Hong Kong designer-of-the-moment, Nelson Chow, and will be a playful mix of vintage and modern classics, with a nod to its New York roots seen in the selection of eclectic taxidermy on the walls.

“The cocktail menu will change frequently throughout the year to take advantage of hyper-seasonal produce and limited-edition wines, beers and spirits. As many guests will be global travellers who may well have been to PDT in New York, we will feature a handful of our house cocktails, such as the Benton’s Old Fashioned, Shard and Mezcal Mule” said Jim Meehan, founder of PDT.

Devotees of PDT’s New York hot dog, by Crif Dogs hotdog stand, need not be concerned as PDT HK will introduce a creative culinary partnership with the city’s leading and most acclaimed chefs, which will be rotated each season. The inaugural free-range pork, chicken and beef hotdog has been created by the hotel’s renowned culinary director, Richard Ekkebus, and further food offerings will be Chef Ekkebus’ take on American comfort fare.
