Stockton

Tender Addict (HKD140)

One of the two cocktails I remember for the night. Coffee based Tender Addict.

Big Dick (HKD130)

....And the most interesting name for a cocktail that night.

My trip to Stockton was not memorable, perhaps it was because we went in a group. The cocktail experience is somewhat different if you're not at the bar... I was sober but, just did not make the extra effort to remember the rest of the drinks.

We visited only because it's in Asia's 50 Best. I only had one and did not order a second due to a few reasons. Firstly, the drink was not great and it was impossible to convey this to the bartender as it was just too busy. They have too many tables and clearly could not handle the crowd. One drink took 45 minutes, inclusive of ordering time which took almost 15 minutes for someone to come to us. With that kind of speed, I wouldn't order a second glass.

However, the concept is very interesting. The entrance is through a dark alley like somebody's house. Then you'll be presented with a rather interesting storybook which is the menu.


Likes: Interesting concept, the menu is fun
Dislikes: More like a club than a speakeasy bar. It's not a classy bar but a rather noisy one, and they cannot cater to the number of tables that they have inside this little space. Perhaps I would visit early evening when the crowd hasn't pour in yet. Also, it's rather impossible to get a table on a Saturday unless you've reserved a table.
