Tours and Tickets

The area
Neighbourhood: Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.

Great atmosphere and cocktails - what else could you want?
Jan 2015 • Couples
Great little spot a few stories up from the street action, with plenty of couches to relax inside and a few larger communal tables on the patio. Friendly service, great drinks - would definitely recommend if you're looking for a place to enjoy a good cocktail. Note that it is on the 6th floor of a multi-use building - head into the main entrance at 8 Lyndhurst Terrace, take the elevator to 6, and you'll see it in front of you when you get off.

Avoid the Overcharge
May 2014 • Business
I really liked this place, and would like to give this place a good review. The drinks are good, the setting is chill with a nice outdoor patio for the mild winter, spring nights in Hong Kong. However, the downside is that if you are using a foreign credit card at this joint, they will ALWAYS charge you a dynamic currency conversion charge regardless as to what you tell them.

For those that are not familiar with dynamic currency conversion charge, it shows up on your credit card for you to pick whether to be charged in your home currency (US$ in my case) or local currency (HK$). If you choose US$, there is a surcharge of 4.4%, as compared to using HK$. This means that you are always paying 4.4% more than your bill. Furthermore, the extra amount does not got to the credit card company, but goes to the merchant providing this service, which is The Blck Brd. Many shady merchants use this tactics as a way to offset the charge that credit card company charges them. I could not believe a place like this would engage in such practices. I visited this bar more than 10 times, and each time, they did this, and I did not catch on until when I started to compare all the credit card recipes from this place. This is even after repeatedly telling the wait staff that it must be charged as local currency, HK$.

This is a place to avoid - despite the good drinks. Never visiting the bar again - why give business to unethical merchants.

Nice hangout
Nothing poncy, just a good hangout, with a nice rooftop bar. At the time I was there, we had cocktails, got to talk to random people, just an easy vibe I guess! Enjoyed it very much!

Small but stylish lounge
Mar 2013 • Business
Came here for pre-dinner drinks with work colleagues. Its got the dark broody lounge down well. Couches are super comfy, drinks are pretty exotic and they have a large range of whiskeys but prices are pretty steep. The food is just nibbles (basically upgraded bar snacks).

The big sell is the roof terrace which gets pretty packed out. I feel this place is best earlier in the evening before things get too busy.

Nice place
Aug 2012 • Couples
I must admit the website is impressive and it tempted me to visit this place despite the limited amount of reviews on the site. The drinks were not too bad and they have a good list of cocktails. I came in the mid afternoon so it was rather quiet. Probably better to come here later in the day. The bar may be a hit or miss for some people.

make the effort to become a regular
Oct 2011
Had been a few times late summer and I admit that the staff were very stand-offish. It's a popular place, I like the drinks & the outdoor balcony so shrugged off iffy service and kept going back.

Around the 4th or 5th visit, the staff started to recognize me. Remembered my drinks (straight Basil Hayden) and even started recommending new ones (sazerac!). The change in attitude from the staff once they know you is like NIGHT & DAY.

Three hours later we could barely walk out of there having paid for less than half what we drank. It's a great bar with really great focus on top quality alcohol and really simple food. Despite there being over like two hundred bars in Central, The Blck Brd is always busy --- they are not hurting for business so just don't expect first class service until you've been a few times and said 'hi'.

Tip: Make the effort to become a regular & you will never leave The Blck Brd sober.

Poor Service and Foresight is not the way to run a business
Having spent a pretty nice evening there one Friday night for after hour drinks with a few people, I went back the next night with 7 people. 4 people in our group ordered drinks while the other 3 did not because we had been drinking all day and they were on pause. At some point, the waitstaff told the individuals who had not ordered that they had to each order a drink. It was their policy that each person had to order something. They left because it was quite frankly very rude and when I spoke with the manager, her reasons for requiring every person to order something was 1. They did not charge cover so everyone should buy a drink (I told her that most bars in HK don't charge cover) 2. They run a business. I pointed out that a few of the girls were on their second round of drinks - and it was offensive to push people who wanted to hang out with their friends to drink, and the reply was, we run a business. Go on running your business - you lost ours and the 6 friends who were going to join us until this incident.

An excellent addition to the HK scene
Feb 2011
A great new venue - combines the best elements of a relaxed, chilled out drinking space with the quality of an exclusive members club. Including an extensive drinks list (particularly whiskies). A must to visit!

Nothing else quite like it in Hong Kong
Jan 2011
A really good new bar, with a surperb whisky collection, great tap selection and more besides. Impressive balcony space, which must be unique for it's location. The bar is a great mix of design styles and a great night out. Recommend a visit should you be staying or just passing through HK.
