Crushed Wine Bar now offers not only bottles but also a curated space for enthusiasts to savor fine wines alongside delectable small and shareable dishes, adding to Hong Kong's wine culture with a sophisticated venue in Sai Ying Pun.
Situated on Second Street, just a hop from its previous location and opposite Brut!, Crushed Wine Bar offers an authentic wine bar vibe. Headed by Leigh-Ann Luckett, a self-professed "cork dork" and South African wine enthusiast, the establishment features a dynamic wine list. So whether you're into classic Chenin Blanc or a chilled Carignan, the selection spans various tastes and budgets.
Luckett's by-the-glass pours ensure a delightful journey, featuring one sparkling, five whites, five reds and three skin contact options. Options start from under HK$200 for retail purchases and HK$260 for dine-in per bottle, making it affordable for both the new wine tasters and sommeliers.
Crushed Wine Bar also invites guests to explore two distinct atmospheres. Downstairs, people can enjoy light bites alongside their favorite wines or opt for Three or Five-glass Wine Flights (HK$180/280). The menu boasts enticing options like Braised Leeks with Almond and Garlic Puree (HK$88) paired with Luddite Saboteur White (HK$120 per glass) and Aubergine, Whipped Roast Chili & Chocolate with Chili Crisp (HK$98) alongside Le Fraghe Bardolino (HK$80 per glass).
Upstairs, a nuanced and creative menu by veteran restaurateur Camille Glass awaits, offering a fusion of broadly French-American comfort food. Group diners can relish large format sharing-style plates, including Crushed's iconic Roquefort Mac and Cheese (HK$148) and Scallop Risotto with Sumac Beurre Blanc (HK$298).
