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. Child policy: Children aged 6-17 years are only permitted in Captain's Bar for food and non-alcoholic drinks before 7pm. Dress code: Before 5pm, comfortable attire is welcomed. After 5pm, we request that guests refrain from wearing shorts (of any length), torn jeans, sportswear, singlets, collarless T-shirts, flip flops and gentlemen's sandals.

This is like any western bar you'd find in London, the US or Australia. Red leather sofas, nuts, beers on tap and lots of westerners in suits- its hard to imagine that outside you are smack bang in the middle of Hong Kong when you sitting there with a cool ale, smoking (ah the last bastion) and eating nuts. Very un-Chinese- except for the service which is fast and efficient. Good retreat from the real world with friends when you want a piece of the familiar if home is in the West.

There's not a huge amount to say about the Captain's Bar to be honest. It's a good style traditional hotel bar, no frills and British themed. The beers are great served out of the cold tankards and that's the main thing. Service is a touch fussy but certainly efficient.

Old school look and feel. Freezing cold beers, awesome martini's and free bar snacks. Fantastic for networking since it's filled with the older movers and shakers. Not for young guys slinging drinks.
