Porterhouse by Laris provides a much needed quiet escape from the bustling (and often chaotic) streets of party central, Lan Kwai Fong. Whether you choose to take a seat at the bar itself, on a table should you be dining, or perch on a stool on the cosy balcony, the relaxed atmosphere will help you de-stress right away. Though the views from the outdoor terrace may not be the best in Hong Kong, it certainly doesn’t detract from feeling the overwhelming density the city is renowned for.
You can enjoy the innovative martini menu at Porterhouse by Laris with the help of their definitive hour, allowing patrons to enjoy an exclusive 2 for 1 offer on drinks from the martini menu, Heineken beer, house red and white wines.
There are a number of fine martinis to choose, from the traditional to the unusual, with which you can choose to opt for either Bombay Sapphire Gin or Smirnoff Red Vodka – or, if you wish to try something different, you can upgrade your martini with a top shelf spirit for an extra $60.
For those who love their martini extra dirty, the Definitive Dirty Martini is a must-try. Made with Bombay Sapphire Gin, Noilly Prat Vermouth, Olive Brine and combined with scrumptious Blue Cheese Olives, this martini is crisp, full-bodied and utterly refreshing.
You can also choose from a Classic Martini, extra dry with Noilly Prat Vermouth and an olive or lemon twist; an Appletini, comprised of Zubrowka Vodka, Apfel Specht, green apple juice and lime, or even a Tomatini made with Crop Organic Tomato Vodka, Tomato water, Balsamic, fresh lemon and basil.
Enjoying a wonderful 2 for 1 offer on drinks from the martini menu is not the only perk worth visiting for; several complimentary platters of gourmet snacks are also on offer at this time and systematically served to curb any hunger pangs.
For a neat, full-bodied martini that packs a punch then Porterhouse by Laris is a bar to add to your list of refined experiences.
