One of my favorite speakeasies in Hong Kong! Love the hidden door - finding the bar always feels like I'm embarking on some kind of adventure. (Also helps that friends are always impressed with this place)

Hong Kong has a number of speakeasies, and Mrs Pound is one of my favorites! It looks like a locksmith shop on the outside... the fun lies in figuring out how to get in! The vibe inside Mrs Pound is relaxing, with some throwback vibes. Very long and diverse drinks menu, and the drinks themselves are beautifully presented. Would not recommend as a first stop for a first date, especially if neither of you have met before... but it’s a cool place to bring friends!

TLDR; Speakeasy, somewhere off Hollywood Road. No menu - drinks are fully customized to your preferences and the bartender's skills. "Invite only". Exclusive, private, intimate. "Mysteriously located somewhere off Hollywood Road and down a hidden alley, this sign-less bar is the baby of famed bartender Joseph Boroski and guarantees only the best when it comes to cocktails. The bar itself is sleek and sophisticated with customised ‘spotlights’ directed at points above it to show off the cocktails. The interior is designed by Ashley Sutton (of Opheila and Iron Fairies) and his renowned extravagant decor is toned down here to focus on the drinks… well, apart from the curved ceiling that’s adorned in hundreds of real, shiny beetles! When it comes to the cocktails, the concept is all about customisation. There is no menu, it’s all about what you want as a customer and the skill and creativity of the bartenders. Tell them your favourite spirit or your favourite ingredients, and they’ll whip up something unique to suit your preferences. With a carefully curated selection of alcohol behind the bar, you’ll find only the highest quality spirits and a range of interesting, unique and boutique brands. Don’t expect your standard spirit brands that you’ll find in 711! Exclusive and intimate vibe, great if you’re looking for a more private spot to impress." - Sassy HK

Might not be the "best" place in this list, but for what Hanjan lacks, it makes up for in charisma. It's actually a Korean/Western restaurant. But when everyone is back in town, my friends and I come here for their Happy Hour drinks. It's a great place to kick the night off since it's a close walk to LKF/other bars. Just be warned - the music can get super loud...

My favorite drink here is the Jap Jap - sake, green tea, lychee. Smooth, light and refreshing. Love coming here with friends for their cool retro old-school HK vibe. Makes you feel like you're in a Wong Kar Wai movie ☁️ It says "members only" at the door but it's pretty easy - you can get your phone number and name registered for free to become a member! Also, bring a scarf because this place can get chilly. Especially if you're having their iced shisha (pretty cool - hah get it)
