A hidden sake bar in Wan Chai
For a no-fuss sake drinking experience, make your way to Wan Chai and knock on the new hidden bar Heya. Heya, which means room in Japanese, is a cosy little nook tucked on the fourth floor of Winner Commercial Building on Lockhart Road. This 18-seater drinking den serves over 30 labels of sake – which you can order per glass ($50 to $100 per glass; $250/flight of three) or bottle, for dine-in or takeaway – sourced from lesser-known breweries in Japan, along with shochu, whisky, fruit liquor, and Suntory beers on draft ($48/glass). Light bites are available on the menu and it includes a homemade Cantonese soup to warm the stomach. But what's great about the space is you can bring your own food (no extra fee), and co-owner Sean Li will gladly help you pair your food with the right bottle of sake. On our last visit, we enjoyed a box of pizza paired with a 2017 Kakeya Junmai Muroka Nama Genshu ($70/glass; $380 bottle) – an umami sake with subtle notes of ripe apples and spices. You can also order bottles sold at an affordable retail price, and the bar will deliver them to you for free even on single purchases to Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and New Territories.
To reserve a seat or order a bottle of sake, call 3188 9201. Follow them on Heya Hongkong on Instagram for updates.
