Victoria Chow may not look like your typical cocktail connoisseur—but she’s the brains behind The Woods, a bar slash lounge on Hollywood Road that just celebrated its third anniversary. She also opened KWOON by The Woods nearby on Bridges Street, a dedicated outpost for The Woods’ artisanal canned cocktails, which have proven to be a hit.

The 28-year-old Generation T lister is a game-changer in Hong Kong’s male-dominated bar scene, and she’s continued to up the ante year after year with a range of conceptual cocktails that keep people coming back for more.

Taking the wheel of a Mercedes-AMG C 43, Chow takes us for a drive around Hong Kong to show us her favourite spots for sourcing fresh ingredients, specifically in and around Graham Street market, before she returns to The Woods to prepare her concoctions from scratch.
