The Pontiac, a Hong Kong bar known for its rock 'n' roll approach to craft cocktails, is taking over downtown San Antonio’s Jet-Setter bar for one night: Friday, January 17.

The Jack Daniels-powered pop-up will be led by Pontiac co-owner and “Queen of the Bar” Beckaly Franks and her assistant Arlene Wong, as they create a selection of boozy, flavorful cocktails based around the iconic bourbon.

Attendees can expect to find Asian-inspired bites provided by Sichuan House, while D.J. Jarvis plays music throughout the night.

“We cannot wait to give San Antonio a taste of Hong Kong’s vibrant and exciting nightlife scene,” said Benjamin Krick, who launched Jet-Setter with co-owner Lucas Bradbury in 2019. “It is going to be a rowdy, fantastic night that you won’t want to miss.”

The event is free, but guests must RSVP to attend.

The Pontiac has been recognized as the best late-night spot in central Hong Kong by Conde Nast. The bar, which is celebrated for international flavors and an inclusive staff, has also been named among Asia's 50 Best Bars for four years running.
