Lockdown: stirring magic from hospitality’s infamous eras
by Aude Camus
Have you spotted the quirky toilet window on Hollywood Road? Guess what, it's the gateway to something far more intriguing – Lockdown, the latest venture of hospitality pioneers Agung and Laura Prabowo (also behind The Old Man and Penicillin).
Now, you might be wondering: What's with the name? Well, picture this: a nod to Hong Kong's rollercoaster of lockdowns during the pandemic, intertwined with the rebellious spirit of the Prohibition era. Embracing the shitty times, quite literally, Lockdown draws inspiration from the highs and lows of history to create a unique and unforgettable experience.
But don't let the vintage vibe fool you – this place is all about modern magic. With a sleek rotating bar station (yes, you heard that right!) and cocktails crafted to perfection, Lockdown is redefining cocktail culture in Hong Kong.

Personal favourites? Let’s talk about the LEFT BANK – a tribute to Saint-Germain-des-Prés (known for its historical significance as a gathering place for artists and intellectuals of the 1920s and 30s), blending Absinthe and elderflower liqueur for a refreshing, herbaceous delight. There’s also the GRASSHOPPER for those of you who can’t resist something sweet before going to bed. This creamy concoction of mint, cocoa, pistachio cream, and rum we’ll satisfy your sweet tooth in style. Imagine digging into a litre of mint ice-cream with chocolate chips … this is as good as that.
Now you know what you have to do if you’re looking for a damn good drink, just push the bathroom door!

G/F, 27 Hollywood Road, Central
