The Drunken Pot

Restaurants Hot pot Tsim Sha Tsui

As far as group dining goes, it really doesn't get more local than hotpots. Sporting interiors that are rustic, artistic, reminiscent of a contemporary fish market and look, well, really hip, The Drunken Pot is the epitome of cool. One must-try is the signature The Ultimate Drunken Pot. Featuring five different soup bases in one copper pot, there's sake, seafood and all sorts of premium ingredients to dunk your food in. There are private rooms for group bookings too, so you can celebrate with your friends away from prying eyes.

Lee Lo Mei

Bars and pubs Cocktail bars Central

Inspired by the roaring 60s of Hong Kong, Lee Lo Mei's vibrant, retro interiors see classic turquoise frames, old-school booths and porch round bar tables under a soothing colour pallet of yellow, green and beige. Featuring an array of innovative Cantonese dishes combined with nostalgic flavours, the à la carte menu heavily reflects on Hong Kong’s playful nature. If you and your friends are down for a more casual affair, the ground-floor bar opening out to Lyndhurst Terrace is also ideal for a round or three of pre/post-dinner drinks.

The Leah

Restaurants British Causeway Bay

By day, this space caters to members of Maggie & Rose, the private family club from the UK that operates a couple of branches in Hong Kong. After 7pm each night, however, it transforms into The Leah, where 'British food done right' is the M.O. in the kitchen and a tucked-away outdoor bar offers sanctuary from the city's helter-skelter rhythm. Expect classics like beef Wellington and scotch eggs with soldiers, as well as clever riffs on the Pimm's Cup and several iterations of the Tom Collins.

Ho Lee Fook

Restaurants Soho

Offering contemporary and innovative interpretations of Chinese and Asian cuisine, Ho Lee Fook does daring fusion food that's unorthodox but intriguing. Boasting a cavernous space featuring an open kitchen on the ground level and a basement dining-cum-bar area, the eatery's moody lighting, slate grey walls, together with grungy touches such as calligraphy and illustrations, Ho Lee Fook can guarantee a good time for you and the gang any day of the week.

The Stadium Bar and Restaurant

Bars and pubs Sports bars Kwun Tong

This American-style sports bar has a good range of craft beers, cocktails, wines and spirits. Snacks on offer include buffalo wings and chilli cheese fries or you can opt for more substantial offerings such as pasta, sandwiches, steaks and seafood. With pool tables, darts machines, table football and sports on the TV, there's everything you and all your sports-loving friends could want, without the exercise! Spanning across a 7,000 sq ft space, there's plenty of room to let the good times roll.

Tung Po Kitchen

Restaurants North Point

Don’t come expecting first class service – the tables are crowded, the staff hurried and the music often booming – but the food keeps the crowds coming back time and time again. Tung Po is basically the rites of passage for anyone new to Hong Kong. Everyone raves about the wind sand chicken and fried durian – and they’re justified in doing so. And of course, the signature of Tung Po is their "fighter's bowl", which is essentially your everyday rice bowl, only it's meant for drinking beer out of. If you're looking for a booze-filled celebration, this is the place. Reservations highly recommended.
