Like gin joint Origin and the well-regarded Quinary, Angel's Share, which opened in 2011, is part of Tastings Group. A lift whizzes you up from the mayhem of Hollywood Road straight into a moody, sleek and dimly lit den with an island bar lined with an impressive range of whiskeys - around 150 from Scotland alone, plus more from the US, Japan, Canada, Ireland, and even England and France.
There's a well-selected range of whiskey flights, while the creative range of whiskey cocktails includes a super-inventive Old-Fashioned selection. Steered away from the Salty Plum Old-Fashioned - a drink more tailored to the Chinese palate, apparently - an Iron Buddha Old-Fashioned was an eye-opener: tea-infused rye garnished with a slice of sweet black tea paper.
Averse to whiskey (or Hong Kong's whiskey prices)? There's a curated range of crowd-pleasing classics and some decent wines, several by the glass.
