Tai-Pan Hideout: On the ground floor of modern Chinese concept Tycoon Tann restaurant sits Mod Bar, offering Chinese-inspired cocktails and bar bites with a creative twist.

Mod Bar - Yum Cha
A new kind of Yum Cha at Mod Bar

Look & Feel: Mod Bar takes a classic approach in its decor, featuring a wall of dark wood cabinets inspired by a Traditional Chinese Medicine shop and low-hanging ceiling lights to give the space warmth.

On the Menu: Look for more than 10 signature cocktails, all unique concoctions that you won’t find elsewhere.We love how the bartenders incorporate old-school Chinese ingredients in the drinks.

Service: The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, always ready to make recommendations.

Jeng: We like the Yum Cha (HK$110), made with homemade cinnamon gin, elderflower-flavored liqueur St. Germain, lemongrass and fruit tea. The bar bites, which also put a spin on traditional Chinese dishes, are moreish. We like the jelly fish tossed with spring onion and sesame oil (HK$120), as well as the fried tofu (HK$68).

Not So Jeng: Space is tight, so you could be sitting shoulder to shoulder.

Great For: Dropping by for a quick drink before dinner/heading home/turning up.

FYI: Tycoon Tann is opened by the team that brought us Wellington Street mainstay Loyal Dining.
