Chiem is behind Australia’s Bulletin Place, recently voted ‘Cocktail Bar of The Year’ and also ranked among the Worlds 50 Best Bars.
Chiem’s cocktail menu is a stellar concoction of dazzling specialties from his celebrated Bulletin Bar – ranging from the best-loved drink ‘What’s the Fizz?’ with Aperol, passion fruit, lime and beer to ‘Wake Up Jeff!’ which mixes bourbon, blackberry, mint powder, lemon and pastis. The cocktail surprises also extend to ‘St Charles Punch’ with Calvados and ‘Suntory Says’, matching Japanese Whisky with absinthe. Non-alcoholic ‘mocktails’ include ‘Apple & Ginger Sour’; ‘Hibiscus’ tea with peach bitters, lime and apple; and ‘Cabrito Cooler’ with Reposado Tequila, cucumber, mint, lime and agave.
In addition, for the month of May SEVVA will play host to two floral works of art in honour of the welcoming of Spring. In place on the outdoor terrace from May 7th, the two large bespoke floral art sculptures took one month to complete by a dedicated number of designers which incorporate over 100,000 fresh flowers. The sculptures will take the form of a brightly coloured life-size Harley Davidson and life-size Mini Cooper made from Chinese box branchlet, Consolida Ajacis and Hydrangea flowers from around the globe – especially sent to Hong Kong for this exhibit. Ms Bonnae Gokson comments ‘I love the idea of juxtaposing soft floral texture alongside the strong classic framework of these two iconic designs”.
Inside, the Lounge Area has received a brightly coloured redecoration for Spring. The new-look lounge features tailor made cushions and chairs made with vivid and unique materials chosen and styled by Ms. Gokson.
*Menu prices are subject to 10% service charge.
With stunning 360 degree views over Hong Kong’s breath-taking skyline and the prime heart of the city, SEVVA delivers a unique and quintessentially Hong Kong dining experience inspired by what Ms. BonnaeGokson describes as ‘the DNA’ of Hong Kong – traditional regional Asian cuisines intermixed with Western fine dining, coupled with her own travels and experiences. She says: “This is my contribution and passion to the city that I love.”
