“Top sports bar in Wanchai”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Simply a great bar , good beers and a great selection of whisky's , they also have a good menu with some great bar snacks and food .... the staff are super friendly as well , for an Englishman to be welcomed in to a bar owned by a " sweaty " and made to feel welcome is always great ... The TVs were showing the latest premier league rugby games which was also a bonus , I had a feeling that it may be a sporting bar as I walked down the stairs to see pictures of the victorious Lions 2013 team enjoying a beer in the Canny Man .. well deserved after beating the Aussies ...The Canny may , Top bar , Top staff , Top food ..

“Great bar”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Having stumbled upon The Canny Man Whisky Bar underneath a tower block we decided that we had to give it a try. I don’t even like whisky but the draw of a Scottish bar was to strong so we descended into The Canny Man bar to see what was what.


To our relief this wasn’t a tacky take on a Scottish Bar but was instead a classy take on what a Scottish lodge might be like complete with wooden everything, a large fire place and a massive selection of very fine and very expensive Scottish Whisky’s.

I had to laugh when a group of locals asked for the cocktail list only to be told that they dont serve cocktails in The Canny Man.

“Get a decent Pub ini Wanchai”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Are you looking for a good scotch whisky? Maybe a special one? You most probably find it here in the Basement of the Wharney Hotel, in the only Scottish Pub of Hong Kong Island.
Some good beer and authentic food (do you like Haeggis?), and it is more quiet than most noisy, busy and with half drunken people flooded pubs in Wanchai.
It is more an insider tip for getting a good drink - and don't drink until you see two Galloway Heads!

“Decent (authentic) Scottish bar in Wan Chai”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

This Scottish Bar located in the basement of the Wharney Guang Dong hotel is a good Scottish bar. Happy Hour for a few hours up to 9 pm so you pay about $40 HK for a house wine / pint.

This place caught our eye coming from Edinburgh where we also have a (legendary) Canny Man bar!

“The Highland Fling in Hong Kong.”
Reviewed 9 March 2013 via mobile

I usually stay at The Wharney and I often pop into this place as it is my local. The decor is that of a Scottish hunting lodge. The menu is extensive and you can even get haggis. A plus is that hotel guests get a 10% discount. The place also has its share of local regulars.
