“Past it's prime”
Reviewed 27 June 2013 via mobile

This used to be one of the most popular hangouts in Wanchai but has lost customers since Queen Victoria opened nearby. Mostly frequented by guys intent on getting very drunk, a good place to observe the comings and goings of Wanchai and as the evening goes on you'll meet some interesting people. Take it for what it is so if you want a drinking den surrounded by go-go bars with the attendant characters of such an environment you'll have a great time.

“Breakfast with Beer”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

A long-standing favourite haunt. Open 24 hours. A great place to get an English breakfast and a pint of Guiness at 8am (or any other time of day). Always guaranteed to find some friendly folk to chat with, or a quiet corner to nurse that hangover - the choice is yours. Love spending mornings there!

“Classic HK”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Very good value compared to the rest of HK. You can stand outside for a smoke and a beer which is cool. Food is the type that built The Empire, thus must be good. Surrounded by old style triad run girly bars, so there is always something to see of an evening, although it ends up like the Star Wars bar once you are into the late timezone. Staff are friendly and quite efficient. This is a place to drink, but as such the toilets can become somewhat suspect, but you get what you pay for. Well worth a visit.
