The best pub quizzes in Hong Kong
1. The Aftermath
A strong supporter of the local music scene, The Aftermath regularly hosts live music, private parties, and you guessed it, trivia nights! We’re all guilty-not-guilty of rewatching our favourite 90s TV shows and hitting replay on 2000s music. The Aftermath’s quizzes rotate around different topics, but sometimes it’s more broad and general. There are a total of three prizes you can win so gather your pals and may the best team name win!
