Description: Keeping Hong Kong entertained for over 50 years, Captain’s Bar is a city institution. Popular with both guests and locals alike, it has been Hong Kong’s favourite after-work watering hole for decades. Enjoying a relaxed, cosy decor with red, wood and brass furnishings, Captain’s Bar exudes comfortable, classic style. Famous for nightly jazz performances and for serving draught beer in silver tankards—regulars receive their own engraved with their name—it’s the kind of place you stop by for a drink and stay all night. Guests in comfortable attire are welcomed throughout the day. After 5pm, ladies are kindly asked to wear elegant attire and proper footwear. Gentlemen are kindly asked to wear closed shoes at all times with smart shirt and long trousers after 5pm.

“A definite stop while in Hong Kong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

It's an institution that has not lost its edge. Still great service, amazing ambience, but it's the red leather chairs that keep us coming back. Great cocktail selection with enjoyable live music.

“An institution”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

An old favourite, which is still going strong. Can be packed at times so be prepared to lurk whilst waiting for a table.

“Step Back In Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Great vibe, loved the singer and musicians, all very old fashioned and thank goodness for that!
Getting a seat is the only problem you'll encounter!

“Good Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Enjoyed the Captains Bar. Very old colonial in its feel and service. Draught beer is served in silver tankards and the cocktails of course are excellent. Just remember if it's after 5pm men are not allowed to wear shorts.
