22 SHIPS, a tapas bar by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton is named after its address on the quaint Ship Street in Wan Chai. With a buzzy ambience and neighbourhood attitude, the tapas bar brings a unique flavour and vibe to complement Ship Street’s casual
and easy-going nature. The buzz focuses on Atherton’s creative tapas menu which represents the modern face of dining — outstanding food that is reasonably priced.
Blending into the neighbourhood with a balance of vintage touches and modern charm, the intimate venue designed by Neri & Hu Design Research Office (NHDRO), offers inside table and communal bar seating, as well as relaxed al fresco dining and drinking.
22 Ships is also the creation of entrepreneur Yenn Wong, founder of JIA Boutique Hotels group and Sheung Wan’s buzzy restaurant and bar 208 Duecento Otto, and Michelin-starred Chef Jason Atherton of London’s Pollen Street Social fame. The JIA Group currently consists of a collection of award-wining hotels and restaurants in Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai.
A creative menu, exceptional service and detailed planning are key to any successful event.
Introducing 22 Ships catering service, our crew of professionals will ensure that your events are memorable and stress-free, whether for a large corporate function or an intimate dinner in the privacy of your home.
Jason Atherton started out working alongside great chefs including Pierre Koffmann, Marco Pierre White, Nico Ladenis and Ferran Adria at el Bulli, before joining the Gordon Ramsay Group in 2001. After launching 'Maze' in London
and overseeing the opening of five more 'Maze' restaurants globally, Jason left Gordon Ramsay Holdings to launch his own restaurant group, The Social Company.
His flagship restaurant 'Pollen Street Social' opened in April 2011 in Mayfair and was awarded a coveted Michelin star within just six months of opening. It was awarded 4 AA Rosettes by the AA Guide, named The Good Food Guide's 'Best New Restaurant' and hailed the third best restaurant in the UK. Jason was awarded 'Chef Of The Year' by 'Caterer and Hotelkeeper', which for a chef, Jason has likened to winning an Oscar.
Four years on, Jason and The Social Company now have multiple restaurants worldwide, including the Michelin-starred Social Eating House, Little Social opposite Pollen Street Social, the acclaimed Berners Tavern - named 'the defining restaurant of the decade' - and City Social, which earned a Michelin star within six months of opening. His latest London opening was Social Wine & Tapas, a wine shop and tapas bar in Marylebone, which the Evening Standard called "Jason Atherton's best yet".
Alongside his London restaurants, Jason has taken the Asian dining scene by storm, opening 22 Ships, Ham & Sherry and Aberdeen Street Social in Hong Kong and The Commune Social and Table No.1 in Shanghai. In 2015, he launched his first stateside restaurant The Clocktower, an all-day dining space set within the New York EDITION Hotel; and Marina Social, a stunning waterside restaurant in Dubai.
Upcoming projects include Kensington Street Social within The Old Clare Hotel in Sydney; and Sosharu, a Japanese restaurant in Clerkenwell.
Jason is married to Irha Atherton who works alongside him as co-director at The Social Company. Irha also runs the head office in Soho, London. Jason and Irha have two daughters and the family live in South West London.
With passion, dedication and a strong Michelin background, Nathan Green joined 22 Ships as Executive Chef in March 2014. A seasoned British chef, Nate came to Hong Kong from his position as Head Chef at Tom Sellers’ Restaurant Story, London, which was awarded a Michelin Star in just 3 months of opening, the fastest in the history of the guide, and Three AA Rosettes for 2014. Nate has worked with renowned establishments, such as Tom Aikens, Arbutus and The Square and was hand-picked by Jason Atherton for the role at 22 Ships and to represent him in his Hong Kong eatery.
