Following an extensive two-month renovation, The Pawn has reopened under the culinary direction of Michelin-starred British chef Tom Aikens. Wan Chai’s landmark dining institution closed late July and now welcome guests with a refreshed menu, design and direction.
On the first floor, guests are greeted by a leafy oasis in the ‘Botanicals’ bar and adjoining balcony area where they can enjoy a selection of inspired cocktails. A separate section of the ‘Botanicals’ bar opens daily from 6pm for after-work drinks, and resembles a chic private club with leather couches and dark wood panels, adding an old-world charm. An intoxicating choice of cocktails will stir the imagination of casual drinkers and shake cocktail connoisseurs out of their complacency. Complementing the cocktails, an enticing menu of bar snacks includes spiced pork ribs with paprika yoghurt and barbecue sauce and beef tartare with juniper, coriander mayonnaise and pickled shiitake.
