Owner/Manager The Pontiac Hong Kong
Hong Kong is by far the most collaborative and supportive hospitality industry I have ever been a part of. It may come as a surprise to those that are not familiar with Asia and or more specifically HK. Being said, the scene here is abundant and progressive and we are all in this greater journey together.
I usually order the classics. One of the best classics for me is the Martinez. I take my Martinez with Stranger & Son's Gin for I love the way the vanilla and bark in the sweet
vermouth nestles with the citrus notes in the gin. A perfect botanical balance.
All the time!!! It is part of what we do at The Pontiac. Our anthem is “Killing in the Name” by Rage Against The Machine. “Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me,” is the main chorus of this song and we scream it from the bar top with our entire crowd nightly. It’s as rock n’ roll as it gets.
I really enjoy live music, so if there is a good show or art exhibition I will be there. Other than that, I like to keep it mellow and go to the movies or fabulous dinner with friends.
For me tending bar and cocktail curation is a medium of art. If I wasn’t in this field I would be in another field of art expression most likely involving music and fashion.

Sex or any other exercise. To get over the hang you have to get oxygen in your lungs and blood flowing.
I would create the leather studded jacket of cocktails for BarChick! Something sexy, delicious and very rock n’ roll. Why don’t you tell me what want your base spirit to be and give me a song to use as inspiration and I’ll make you magic.
