Hong Kong, China
A candle-lit homage to mezcal and tequila
Jay Kahn named his Hong Kong bar after the machete-like tool used for harvesting agave – the plant from which both mezcal and tequila are distilled. Coa pays homage to both spirits, offering the city’s largest agave collection, clocking in at around 200 bottles. Within the candle-lit, industrial-designed space, spirit enthusiasts pop in for rare mezcal varietals plus other unsung agave-based liquors, plus signature cocktails like the grapefruit-spiked mezcal and tequila blend, La Paloma de Oaxaca. Debuting at No.12, Coa is also the Highest New Entry 2019.
