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

Description
Keeping Hong Kong entertained for over 50 years, Captain’s Bar is a city institution. Popular with both guests and locals alike, it has been Hong Kong’s favourite after-work watering hole for decades. Enjoying a relaxed, cosy decor with red, wood and brass furnishings, Captain’s Bar exudes comfortable, classic style. Famous for nightly jazz performances and for serving draught beer in silver tankards—regulars receive their own engraved with their name—it’s the kind of place you stop by for a drink and stay all night. Child policy: Children aged 6-17 years are only permitted in Captain's Bar for food and non-alcoholic drinks before 7pm. Dress code: Before 5pm, comfortable attire is welcomed. After 5pm, we request that guests refrain from wearing shorts (of any length), torn jeans, sportswear, singlets, collarless T-shirts, flip flops and gentlemen's sandals.
