Ready for Take Off: Tipping the hat to a 1950s vintage plane, Runway in Central makes a roaring debut on Wyndham Street.
Look & Feel: Runway comes with steel walls and aviation-inspired motifs like turbines, LED-lit maps and compasses throughout the space. At less than a 1000-square-feet, it can get a little too cozy at times, but the superb deejay and beat boxer definitely make up for it.
On the Menu: The signature “Pearl Harbor” blends a local favorite, a mango pomelo sago dessert, with Nusa Cana Island rum and a raw cocoa rim; while the “Singapore; One Mile at a Time” reinterprets the classic Singapore Sling with pandan leaves, Beefeater Gin, pineapple and lime juice, and kaya jam. For something with more color, opt for the “Butterfly Pea Flower” concocted by Gin Jubilee 2016 Hong Kong Champion Tomi Ho.
Jeng: Aside from alcoholic guilty pleasures, Runway’s food menu also cruises gastronomic altitudes, featuring dishes from eight different countries. Choose from Turkish pide (flat bread), Vietnamese chicken bahn mi, Hong Kong’s own crispy white fish fillet, and more.
Great For: Small group gatherings, weekend nights out.
