These hip new bars are shaking up the scene around Duxton and Club Street.

L’Aiglon
Inspired by owner Pierre-Emmanuel Plassart’s travels, this new upscale 76-seater exemplifies Parisian chic, with Asian accents such as Chinese lanterns. The menu features American-style dishes like the Pep’s chicken mini burger ($14) and fusion plates such as the obsiblue tartare with ginger flower and lime caviar ($16). Drinks-wise, expect premium tipples with hefty price tags. Rare Champagne offerings include Veuve Clicquot Brut Rosé Cuveé La Grande Dame ($5,000), while signature cocktails, by mixologist Louis Tan, include At World’s End ($20), comprising applejack, lemon juice, chai tea syrup, egg yolk and lime powder.

Mars Bar
This pop-up bar (here till the end of the year) by the folks behind event bartending company Mixes from Mars looks like a boutique hotel lobby, with large coffee tables, plush chairs, and art sculptures. What’s really special is the creative “mod Sin” cocktail menu. Offerings include the Chilli Crab Cocktail ($22)—kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass reduction, chilli crab paste, orgeat syrup, Malibu and Tanqueray gin, or for something a little safer, try the creamy Milo from Mars ($20), with vanilla ice cream, butterscotch Schnapps, Mozart chocolate bitters, applejack and good old Milo.

Scoop
This journalists’ bar, inspired by foreign correspondent clubs, is targeted at the media industry, though non-media types are also welcome. The interior features newsprint walls and photographs of media personalities, as well as two TVs broadcasting the latest scoop. There’s even a small lounge for conducting interviews. The American-style food menu includes mac and cheese ($12) and handmade pizzas ($20). Cocktails like the raspberry and passionfruit Pornstar Martini ($22) are to be had, alongside wine, beer and shooters (from $10). Media professionals get to enjoy 1-for-1 drinks every Wednesday.
