The second outlet in town opened by Taiwanese craft brewery Zhang Men offers an impressive selection of beers on tap — the darker offerings, including the black IPA and Russian imperial stout (Professor X), are excellent. Drop by before 7pm to enjoy fantastic happy hour deals, with beers as much as 50 percent off. If you’re early or lucky enough, you might also score a seat at the porch, which has the best people-watching views.
It may be a whole lot quieter than its neighbours to the east, but Sai Ying Pun still has plenty of places where you can get a good drink. Indeed, Hong Kong's residential oasis even has a couple of top cocktail spots, including one of the best gin joints on the island in Ping Pong 129 and an outpost of Bali's coolest beach club, Potato Head. Who would've thunk it? Actually, if you've spent any amount of time in Sai Ying Pun at all, the answer to that (rhetorical) question would be you. From colourful street art to high-quality coffee to a measure of authenticity in the form of bustling wet markets and dried seafood shops, this neighbourhood has it all. If you're looking for an alternative to the nightlife in Central and Sheung Wan, head out to Sai Ying Pun and see what this district has to offer.
