With its display cabinets of silver-handled umbrellas, The Fox Shop looks like an umbrella boutique. But press down on the right umbrella handle, then you will unveil a secret doorway into the Foxglove, a travel-inspired bar and one of the best jazz clubs in Hong Kong that also serves decent Cantonese banquet-style cuisine. So-called because it was inspired by the adventures of a fictitious English gentleman called Mr. Minza, who named the bar after his beloved’s favorite flower in a bid to win her over.
Opened by the same owners and designers behind Mrs. Pound, this bar is decked out like a first-class luxury liner from the 1950s, and their VIP booth is designed to look like a first-class train carriage. Spacious, plush upholstery and with regular jazz nights every week, it makes for a nice chance to play Mad Men’s Don Draper (or Joan Holloway) sipping at classic cocktails while watching a live band perform. Great for a date night with live music, and for slightly bigger groups.
