Located in the former police officers’ mess hall of Tai Kwun, classy watering hole The Dispensary sits between sister restaurants The Chinese Library and Statement – all owned by Aqua Restaurant Group. Here, the ornate, colonial-inspired décor gives off major throwback vibes. Try the Brave Burlingham, named after a policeman who’s said to have fought the tiger that had mauled his colleagues and villagers to death in the New Territories in 1915. The cocktail is made with Plantation 3 Stars White Rum infused with charcoal for a striking black hue.
