Optimistic hour at the Optimist is from 3pm to 7:30pm, 7 days a weeks and start off with drinks and nibbles at under HKD 50.
On the ground floor of the building on Hennessy Road, the Optimist is easily missed if you do not pay attention to the side shops. As you walk into the space you feel like you are in a different area. The decor is unique and makes you feel very welcome.
The ground floor is a chic Spanish bar with delicious tapas, and the first floor, which I have yet to try is an elegant Italian restaurant.
My favorite optimistic cocktail is the Frangi Pani with cimarron blanco tequila, peach liquor, orange and cranberry juice.
As for their tapas Boquerones en vinagre yum! (anchovies in vinegar)
PS. service charge is not included so it’s up to you to tip as you feel the service was.
