What better way to say arrivederci to June than with Negroni Week? The international charity event, organised annually by Imbibe and Campari, returns to Hong Kong next week — just in time for the 100th anniversary of its hallowed Florentine namesake. From 24-30 June, bars and restaurants throughout Hong Kong will be showcasing inventive (often limited-time) takes on the negroni, donating a portion of all sales to their charity of choice. Negroni Week 2019 follows a bumper year: last June, over 10,000 venues worked collectively to raise around US$2 million for various charitable causes.
From the “Holy Trinity” (i.e. gin, vermouth, and Campari) to recipes loaded with more than half a dozen esoteric ingredients, here are the best bars in Hong Kong if you’re thinking of indulging in a bit of alcoholic activism for Negroni Week 2019.
