34 Best Bars in Central, Hong Kong

The Keg


As the name implies, beer and more beer is the beverage of choice at this small pub. It's designed to resemble the inside of a keg, with interiors finished in wood, copper, and polished steel. Large wooden barrels serve as tables, and the floors are covered with discarded peanut shells. Sports coverage rules the TV screens.

Tsui Wah


While locals head to the three-story Tsui Wah at any time of the day, the late-night crowds are the happiest. Service is quick and there's a huge menu of typical Chinese fare such as fried rice and noodles as well as western dishes such as steak and pasta. It's noisy and bright, but the crowds just keep on coming. You may even find the odd celebrity chowing down on beef brisket noodles at 2 am.

Varga Lounge


Named after the Peruvian painter of pinup girls, this is a colorful, eclectic little spot for a cocktail. Large groups can take over the upstairs lounge, with its bright walls and 1950s'-inspired art. Downstairs, the popular bar opens onto the street.

By midnight the line outside this club is more like a scrimmage. The maze of low-ceilinged basement rooms hosts a young, hip crowd and a genuinely eclectic mix of music ranging from electro-house to hip-hop to rock-and-roll mash-ups. Volar boasts one of Hong Kong's best sound systems and the clout to draw some of the best DJs from overseas.
