What's Happening On Instagram?Is this the world’s coolest bar? 🍸🍹🚔🏢👮🏻♂️ I love the way heritage buildings have been repurposed into cultural and creative hubs in Hong Kong. The recently revitalised Tai Kwun incorporating the Old Victoria Prison, Central Magistracy and Police Station is a case in point. Stroll through the parade ground, up the Laundry Steps into the Prison Exercise Yard to discover “Behind Bars” where you can enjoy your cocktails in a refurbished prison cell. And that is just one very small part of the Tai Kwun story. I could spend days here. #thepaddingtonfoodie #visithongkong #taikwun #coolestbar #jailhouserockGood Morning ☀️All my favourites on a plate. Gravlax, ricotta and fennel.
