To 5 quirky weekend drinks picks

The Madhouse

16 Yim Po Fong Street, Mong Kok
If its name and Mong Kok location aren’t enough to validate this spot’s “quirky” street cred for you and your pals’ weekend drinks, maybe its 20 draught taps and a specialised bottle selection from around the world will. Their craft beer and ciders are handpicked with the aim of making beer accessible to everyone – from first-time drinkers to discerning craft beer lovers. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Engage them in conversation; they’re versed in all things beer, including styles, history, breweries and brewing.

Gulu Gulu

4th Level, Knutsford, 10 Knutsford Terrace, Tsim Sha Tsui
Say ‘Hello!’ to a playful recreation spot in charming Knutsford Terrace. In case you were wondering, the “gulu gulu” name imitates the sound of drinking – geddit? The interiors are funky, featuring pool and beer pong tables that encourage guests to mingle, socialise have fun.


G/F, 26 Yiu Wa Street, Causeway Bay
The idea behind MY.DEA is to mine Hong Kong pop aesthetic and promote local culture. This is evident in the interiors, which feature calligraphy-as-graffiti, neon signs, tiles, and other familiar flourishes. Local craft beers are the specialty here, so do indulge and envelop your weekend drinks with that unique – and ever-so-slightly-crazy! – HK vibe.

Check-in Taipei

Ground Level, 27 Hollywood Road, Central
This little gem in Central specialises in shaking up awe-inspiring cocktail creations that uniquely represent Taiwanese culture. Check-In Taipei wants to create an atmosphere where the customer feels like they have made a weekend escape trip to Taipei. I mean, just look at that towering Taipei 101-inspired cocktail masterpiece below!


Shop A, G/F, On Hing Building, 1 On Hing Terrace, Central
Inspired by the crazy nightlife and ferocious drinking culture of Japan, AMAZAKE is an izakaya and Japanese specialty bar. No doubt you’ll be amused by the wall art featuring fat sumo men looking on with glazed eyes at merrymakers. This place is a hospitable haven for restless souls who want an unforgettable night out filled with delicious food, fabulous drinks and some of HK’s most popular drinking games!
