The best bars in Causeway Bay
1. Alto Bar & Grill
If you want a hearty meal and a great view with your drinks, Alto Bar & Grill is the place to be! With a wide range of international wines and cocktails, any palate can be suited at this picturesque steakhouse.

With over 23 taps of beer from Young Master brewery served at style-specific temperatures, you can come by for dinner, or just a pint after work. Not a big fan of beer? Second Draft still has you covered with a wide selection of cocktails and natural wines.

3. Club @28, Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay
Located adjacent to Crown Plaza’s swimming pool, Club @28 is absolutely stunning at night when the city lights reflect on the pool. Happy hour at Club @28 runs everyday from 5pm to 8pm where you can enjoy buy-one-get-one-free on designated drinks. The afternoon tea here needs some mentioning too, it’s such a great deal for two.

Lounging on a rooftop with killer views of Kowloon? Who can turn that down?! Plus, when the whole bar reflects its bluish tint at night, it does feel like you’ve got your head in the sky(e)! The extensive drinks list consists of everything in the books (and more!), but going for a house cocktail is always a lil adventurous (expect the unexpected). For non-alcoholic options, there are alcohol-free wines, coffee, tea, and mocktails.

5. Inn Side Out
You don’t know Causeway Bay Inn-side out (sorry not sorry) until you’ve been to this sports bar that’s been running for over 15 years now! And you can’t watch your favourite matches empty-handed so have your pick amongst the 90 commercial and premium brands on tap. Don’t forget the endless supply of free peanuts! Plus, it’s right next to the golf course in South China Athletic Association so the grassy fields make a great spot for catching some games.

6. Cadillac Bar & Grill
Everyone knows Cadillac for their CRAZY happy hour deals, we’re talking about $18 for a drink here! The rates go up every hour but even then, a drink (beers, wines, spirits, and margaritas) will just cost you $48 as long as you’re there before 7.30pm. You can pair your drink(s) with some reasonably priced hookah that comes in six different flavours. Don’t worry about finding seats, the bar sits on a massive outdoor terrace, and it makes you feel right in the middle of the concrete jungle!

Tuck into some class without breaking your bank.

Beer pong is obviously the ultimate bar game, and PONG revs it up with neon lights, touch-screen controls, and a balcony to grab drinks with a view. The drinks list – oh boy is this gonna take a while to decide – everything from fine wines, continental whiskey, and draught beers, it’s a biggie!

9. b.a.r. Executive Bar
For starters, they have over 300 different types of whiskey! b.a.r Executive is owned by Japanese bartenders and much of their alcohol is imported from Japan. And you don’t walk into a Japanese bar and not try their sake, that’s almost a crime! The bar is also well-known for shaking up cocktails with seasonal Japanese fruits. Will you go for the che guava, mango daiquiri, or peach martini? Don’t forget to try their homemade whiskey chocolate!

10. Champagne Bar at Mira Moon
No, you don’t have to dive straight into drinks when you walk into a bar (though that’s totally fine too) but Champagne Bar’s dinner menu is worth splurging on too. The menu features about 30 dishes including patrons favourites, the Spanish crystal bread and the gigantic grilled U.S. prime tomahawk. Note that most of the champagne at this bar can only be ordered in bottles.

WTF Bar (permanently closed)
No, the acronyms don’t stand for a cuss word, instead it’s a fuss word! Worth The Fuss (WTF) is a casual bar with tiki-themed drinks. It boasts a carefully-curated menu of 75 whiskies and wines. They have a total of 21 signature tipples including the Catch Me If You Can #2, a fruity cocktail made with pineapple rum, juice, and wasabi for an edgy kick, and the WTF Rusty Nail with Drambuie, Mancino vermouth bianco, and smoky whisky. They also sell bottled cocktails for takeaway. So yes, this bar is defo worth the fuss!
