Iron Fairies has finally arrived Hong Kong. Soft launched last night with an intimate small group of investors of the dining concept and Ashley Sutton, the legendary night-life designer from Australia. Iron Fairies Hong Kong is going to be the third Iron Fairies, after the first one in Bangkok and the second one in Tokyo. Just like all the other bar, the cocktail menu of Iron Fairies is again designed and created by Joseph Boroski, the famous Yankee mixsultant (mixology + consultant) from New York. The two of them had a long working relationship started from the old days in Bangkok and now spreading their foot prints across in Hong Kong.
If you ask me to use 2 words to describe the Iron Fairies Bar in Hong Kong, I would totally use ‘mysterious dungeon’. As I stepped through the front door, I thought I was being teleported by a time machine to the medieval times. My eyes were overwhelmed by the amount of details Ashley had put in throughout the whole space. The ceiling is decorated with over 8500 preserved butterflies. The softness of the butterflies created a strong contrast with the rustic fixtures and decorations in the bar. There are 3 furnaces on each side of the wall. To be surprises, each furnace is a secret room filled with medieval couches, which makes them the perfect hide away places for romantic dates. The bar is decorated with thousands of bottle of fairy dusts hanging right above the the bar and the actual bar is filled with lavenders. The centre of the room is filled with rustic iron tables and wooden stalls. The tables are decorated with files of iron fairies – I can so see those piles shrink in a few months’ time. =) Overall, it feels like I walked into a huge dungeon and what awaits for me inside is a very rustic iron garden!
For those who tried to googled the address of Iron Fairies Hong Kong and couldn’t find the address last night – Here’s the address of the bar -> B/F, 1 Hollywood Road, Central. It is right next to the J Boroski Bar! Looks like the two brothers like to work closely together.
