On Asia’s 50 Best Bars list since the inception of the awards, The Pontiac is known for its well-curated cocktail list featuring only nine signature drinks. Now for two nights only (August 2 and 3), you can try six of these at Olive Bar & Kitchen, Bandra.

Raise your glasses to The Pontiac’s Tink Aira Chan and Arlene Wong who will start by making you The Pontiac’s most popular cocktail to date - Hobnail, rye whiskey, house-made ginger syrup, lemon juice, Averna and Angora bitters. There’s a reason that Chan is known as The Slayer in drinking circles. 

Also on the list: a tropical Dope Slap mixed with Pisco, Giffard banana liqueur, lemon juice, Laphroaig, sugar syrup and orange bitters; My Name is Nobody (MNIM), a chili-hot take on the classic Negroni, made with Chili-infused Bacardi carta blanca rum, Vermouth Rosso, Aperol and Fernet branca; the sweet-tart Snake Sour, featuring Plantation dark rum, Amaretto, house-made, spiced rhubarb bitters, lemon juice, sugar syrup and egg white; Heisenberg, a potion of gin, vermouth bianco, blue curacao, lemon, simple syrup, and absinth; and finally, the bright Rainbow Maker, a shot of Jameson and Budweiser, infused overnight with pickle. 

During this Hong Kong take over, the entire look and feel of the bar at Olive will be transformed. Think neon lights, feather boas, disco ball, Pride flags. Our hearts flutter for this, but Olive, you had us at Dope Slap. 

Getting there: Olive Bar & Kitchen, 14 Union Park, Bandra (W), call 43408229 for reservations.
