King Kong / REVIEW PREVIEW

Kong, Calle 69, No. 5-36, Zona G
A large silver tree marks the entrance to Bogota‘s Kong, whose interior wavers between a club and a highly surreal restaurant. The downstairs bar area is dark, with plush velvet chairs, neon bar lights and circular silk wall decorations that look like jellyfish heads. It’s over-the-top and glamorous, sure, but also undeniably stylish and quite unlike usual grandiose flourishes. Upstairs, the imaginative eye for detail continues with a hundred birdcages crowding the ceiling and bird outlines flying along the wall (apparently, a sign of Hong Kong’s independent freedom). But Kong is not all style and no substance; Su Chef Wu Hua only speaks Mandarin and can be seen in the open kitchen cooking everything from traditional fried rice to the more adventurous duck with oyster sauce. Add one of Kong’s speciality cocktails, and you can see why this restaurant is the venue of choice for those who want to impress.
