Our city is going through a great cocktail movement, our aim is to showcase an innovative approach to Cocktails. 

The Cantonese culture has influenced many aspects of the culinary world and we strive to integrate some of these fundamentals in our beverage program

Hope & Sesame, opened in March 2016, is the first “speakeasy” bar in Guangzhou. Tucked away behind a traditional Cantonese cafe in the quaint neighborhood of DongshanKou.

As the crowned bar of the year & recipient of the best cocktail program in China (DMBA 2018) and Asia 50 Best Bars 2019 #35, Hope & Sesame is a unique testing ground for cocktail innovation.

Behind a secret door within Hope & Sesame is “The Jazz Room”, a salon with passionate jazz players congregating nightly to perform lively tunes, it is a true sanctuary even for the most discerned jazz enthusiasts.
