Kyle & Bain

In the late 1800’s colonial Hong Kong, ice was once a luxury. In order to escape the humid embrace of the South Asian climate, giant ice blocks were shipped at vast expense from the frozen ponds of New England, passing the Cape of Good Hope, and finally reaching its destination at the Fragrant Harbour. It was not until two entrepreneurs and inventors, William Kyle and John Bain patented the first ice machine, thus making ice an affordable commodity in Hong Kong.

Paying homage to ice machine inventors William Kyle & John Bain, John Nugent — Beverage Director of Leading Nations and Head Mixologist, adorns the Ice House concept bar with colonial-inspired creations, offering a neighbourhood gastropub for Martini lovers to call Kyle & Bain their second home.
