The Fox umbrella store provides an extremely unassuming front for the 'Foxglove,' a contemporary speakeasy hidden within the walls of the store. The unique establishment is located on High Ice Street in Hong Kong's Central District and is accessed through a secret sliding door.

Once inside, not only do patrons feel as though they have been transported back in time, the interior evokes the feeling of traditional English whiskey bars of years past. The upscale bar offers rare whiskeys and cognacs that have been aged for half a century, as well as traditional cocktails. To add to this restaurant's charm, a selection of French cuisine is also offered to match each drink's flavor profiles. To finish, Foxglove holds an 80-seat capacity that surrounds a small stage, with a resident jazz band -- a subtle and tasteful nod to the past.
