Hong Kong's The Diplomat & Matt Abergel Wants You to 'Eat Your Heart Out'

For Halloween, Hong Kong’s highly touted The Diplomat is welcoming back Matt Abergel from Michelin starred Yardbird for Eat Your Heart Out. For one-day-only, Matt will be in The Diplomat’s kitchen, creating a foods and drinks extravaganza with all-you-can-eat snacks, alongside free-flowing Sunday’s Whisky and Fernet Hunter highballs.

For most people with kids, Halloween is something to look forward to; For the majority of others that don’t live with kids, it’s a night to be out! The thought of children banging on your door decked out with badly painted faces, and shoddy costumes, demanding goodies and threatening a penalty if you don’t comply is a tradition that will cause millions to shudder and look for places to be elsewhere.

The Diplomat is the brainchild of the award-winning mixologist John Nugent (above). It offers a beverage menu containing an excellent choice of reimagined classic cocktails, vintage liquors and small batched produced wines. The Diplomat’s interior is somewhat similar to a cosy gastropub and features some fantastic contemporary artwork that accentuates the defined interior spaces. The Diplomat is known for its expertly crafted cocktails, and these combined with its open-armed hospitality make it an ideal place for weary travellers.
