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 superb bar in the lobby of the Mandarin Oriental, the service is quick and efficient, the drinks are excellent, and the evening music is relaxing.

“Old fashioned colonial haunt, beer in metal tankards. A respite from the hustle and bustle”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Liked the cold beer and relaxed environment with live low key singer. A bit old fashioned, but perhaps that's the aim.

“Good lively atmosphere”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Busy lively bar especially before eating in evening - hard to find space. Good service. Occasionally over boisterous ex pat clientele but adds to the atmosphere in a weird way. Drinks not too overpriced given the standard

Great buzzing bar with amazingly attentive serve despite the amount of people. Really enjoyable. The noise level is quite high, so for a confidential conversation may not be right or perhaps t is

“A Classic”
Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

Classic Cocktails, Red low-slung Leather, crisp linens, Cuban Rum.
Captains Formula is timeless and geared squarely towards Suited Gents cooking up Business Deals over Tiffins of Curry and Beer. I've definitely had more memorable Food but the decor and Patrons make this a good stop before or after a meal.
