The Wise King

The Wise King is now firmly established as a Hong Kong favourite with a difference. Its individuality lies in its heavy Iberian accent; the name pays tribute to Alfonso X of Castile, a 13th-century Spanish monarch who allegedly contributed to the creation of the country’s culinary tradition of tapas with a decree stating that no alcoholic beverage should be served without food. Try the signature cocktail named after Alfonso himself, El Sabio or The Wise, featuring spiced dried fruit and red wine reduction with Cava. Enjoy the creative concoctions from head bartender Sandeep Kumar with a side of patatas bravas in the intimate space with plush velvet seats and golden Damask-style wallpaper.
