The creation of this bar has been inspired by the famous novel by Richard Mason and the film ‘The World of Suzie Wong’ by Richard Mason, which starred William Holden and Nancy Kwan. The bittersweet love story took place in post-war Hong Kong in the late 1950s, between a beautiful girl known as Suzie Wong and an English painter who had just arrived in Hong Kong, Robert Lomax.
Forced into prostitution in order to support her child, Suzie Wong came to work at the Nam Kok Hotel (which was actually a reputable brothel) in Wanchai where Lomax rented a room to live in. This was Suzie Wong’s world, the world of the Hong Kong brothels, of kindness and friendships, of loyalty, of the unstinting helping hand, of desperate poverty. Robert was madly attracted at Suzie, however he stayed clear from her for a long time as he did not want to share her with other men, whereas Suzie could not stop working in order to support her dream for her child’s education.
