An Exclusive Experience At Dragonfly With The Designer Ashley Sutton


August 31, 2018 | BY Hong Kong Tatler

For one night only, meet the visionary behind Tai Kwun’s fabulous new cocktail hotspot

Having successfully opened Ophelia, J.Boroski, Iron Fairies, Yojimbo, and Dear Lilly, cocktail lounge maverick Ashley Sutton presents Dragonfly, his sixth act with Dining Concepts located in historical heritage complex Tai Kwun, the new Bohemian-style cocktail lounge is inspired by the Art Nouveau era, when decadence and stylish artistry are celebrated.

Under a ceiling filled with turquoise glass lamps inspired by American artist Louis Tiffany, celebrated for his stained-glass window creations, the patterned mosaic designs on the flooring matches with the interior. Sutton’s creative vision also brought over 500 cast iron dragonflies adorning the bar area and the walls within the premise. 

The new cocktail bar features creations that pay homage to his global travels, from bubble tea-inspired Dragon’s Pearls (jasmine milk tea mixed with mandarin, gin and cognac), to the tropical Golden Serpent, where coconut-infused Jamaican rum mixes with lemongrass palm sugar and pineapple juice. The cocktail bar also presents small plates for sharing, notably including short ribs bun, beef sliders, and black truffle polenta bites with parmesan cheese.

On September 11, 40 guests will have the opportunity to meet Sutton for a one-night-only event at Dragonfly, where they will enjoy one signature cocktail as well as with free-flow wines and canapes. This exclusive Dragonfly experience with Sutton is a fabulous opportunity to meet him in person and understand more about his artistic creations and the stories behind them. The event runs from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm and is exclusive for Asia Miles members only and each guest can bring one more guest for the event, which is priced at HK$480 + 10% per person. Guests can sign up by email here.
