Wolf Market is an homage to the stock exchange, in which prices of alcohol fluctuate based on ‘market demand’ and is projected onto the ceiling and walls like stock indexes. While this may not be the place for people working in finance (because it might feel like they never left work, unless that is the point), it is an energetic scene for the rest of us. Happy hour in this bar in Central, Hong Kong runs from 3-9pm, with house spirits and beer priced at just $50. A friendly note though – their signature drinks and the mouthwatering Jack Daniel’s Fried Chicken remain fixed in price, as they know they’ve got us hooked!
UG-1/F, The Plaza, 21 D'Aguilar Street, Central
Stand outside Foxglove, and you could be forgiven for thinking that you’re on the set of Kingsman. Indeed, Foxglove is inspired by the vision of the world travels of a British gentlemen and his lover’s favorite flower (the Foxglove). Decorated with checkered tiles and golden display cabinets showing off antique canes - the bar itself is surprisingly intimate, with seats clustered close together under dim lighting. In the middle of the room stands a small stage, and it is certainly worth getting a seat with a good view of the stage. At around 9 or so, some of Hong Kong’s best jazz bands begin to play, so get there early! Our favorite drink is the Mizuwari – a whisky with plum wine and chocolate bitters.
6 Duddell Street, Central
12,000 Francs prides itself on its quality of wine. They work directly with boutique importers across the world, allowing them access to wines that other Hong Kong restaurants may not be able to. Their superb happy hour runs from 3-7pm from Tuesdays to Sundays, in which a glass of their recommended wine is a bargain at $50. The happy hour menu also features beers and snacks prepared by the house chef. Dishes not to miss include the battered tempura squid and mushroom, and 63-degree egg served with sourdough toast.
43 Elgin Street, Central
LILYA Moroccan Lounge and Bar
Looking for a taste of Marrakesh in Central, Hong Kong? LILYA Moroccan Lounge and Bar is best known for its authentic Moroccan cuisine along with its colorful interior design evoking the feel of a traditional bazaar. Known for their Happy Moroccan Hours on Sundays to Wednesdays from 6pm to 8pm, the happy hour menu offers buy one get one free drinks. Our favourite is Medina – a rum and almond milk concoction with pineapple infusions. Don’t miss their great snacks - scrumptious starters including their chicken, almond, and honey pastries as well as cheese and olives. And if the mood strikes, the place transitions great into a nice dinner venue.
