Drinking and nightlife in New Territories

  • Nightlife in Tsuen Wan

    Cheng's Store

    Tea connoisseurs may like this eccentric store that whips up lattes with Iron Buddha leaves and 'yin yeung' with Blue Mountain. The boss Mr Cheng charges hotel prices, but his concoctions are nuanced and unusual. He also makes an Instagram-worthy performance of his labour, talks about tannin and tea-making in the Song dynasty, and serves his drinks in bowls.

  • Nightlife in Yuen Long

    Accro Coffee

    Excellent coffee – single-origin and blends – crafted by a world siphonist champion some ways removed from downtown Yuen Long. These are some of the best cuppas in the New Territories, so the cosy cafe gets crowded on weekends. If you're hungry, there's decent cheesecake and waffles with Earl Grey cream.

  • Nightlife in Sai Kung Peninsula

    Classified

    Classy Classified is the place to go in Sai Kung for good wine and cheese. Wooden communal tables and open frontage make it ideal for people-watching too.

    Poets

    Though not exactly poetic, this pub is a down-to-earth spot for a pint of English ale and some typical pub grub, like steak and kidney pie. There are a few alfresco seats out front. Poets is a two-minute walk from the seafood restaurants on the Sai Kung waterfront. Happy hour noon to 9pm.

  • Nightlife in Tai Po

    Bobby London Inn

    Old-fashioned English-style pub that seems little changed since the days it kept the British engineers of Tai Po's infrastructural projects hydrated. Bobby looks cozily shabby and is ultra laid-back with lots of regulars ready to chat, sing and share stories.

    King's Belly

    Dimly lit English-style pub with friendly bartenders and live sports broadcast. The food is nothing to jump up about, so ditch the table seats and down your pint at the bar; or take it to the pavement out front and mingle with the regulars.

    Momentai

    Situated right next to the Sai Kung waterfront promenade, Momentai is convenient for a beer or a glass of wine when you hop off the boat from the beach islands nearby. The views are hard to beat, but you might want to eat somewhere else.
