The bar culture in Hong Kong’s Mong Kok area is different from other districts here, as most of them are located upstairs, something that adds a layer of mysterious and excitement to a night out. We highlight the best hidden places to drink here,
Located on the 13th floor of the biggest shopping mall in Mong Kok, The Sky Bar is a decent bistro that serves drinkers with a wide range of beverages and food. Their cocktails, mocktails, beer, and wine are all fabulous, while their food is even better; the fresh oysters are selected and imported from six counties, and the signature fries served with ketchup and mayonnaise are really crispy and appetizing. Sometimes you can enjoy lovely music while you’re drinking, with great live music performances.
Spark Bar & Restaurant is particularly suitable for those who want to have a relaxing after-work drink. It is a petite bistro full of contemporary decoration, artistic paintings and some comfy dark red sofas. Their alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are both fantastic, while the range of Western-style food is well executed. The peach punch complemented by the seafood platter is a winning combination.
Mini Club is a bar with cosy atmosphere, sophisticated interior, lovely music, and great drinks. The various colorful drinks are great, especially the Flaming Rose cocktail in which the bartender will burn the rose floating on the liquid. The Western-style bar snacks are tasty too.
