Bar Leone

One of Hong Kong's most popular figures in hospitality, Lorenzo Antinori is channelling his signature brand of charm and irreverent humour into Bar Leone, a new neighbourhood spot for classic and modern classic cocktails and his first independent venture, located on Bridges Street, in Soho, Hong Kong.  

Bar Leone is heavily influenced by Rome, Italy’s capital, and in particular Trastevere, one of its most historic neighbourhoods, where Lorenzo was raised. The character of Bar Leone is inspired by the spirit of the local, traditional Roman bars that form the cornerstone of the city’s 21 neighbourhoods. Leone - the strong, sovereign lion - was Rome's symbol until the Renaissance, and is still the symbol of Trastevere today.


"I really enjoyed working with Companion for the opening of Bar Leone. The project was a very important one to me, and I felt that the team understood my needs and were able to help create the content, strategy and events tailored specifically to my vision. The bar industry in Asia is so very vibrant and it is difficult to cut through all the noise. With Companion onboard to look after the details, I was able to focus on the bigger picture, knowing I was in safe hands."
