Causeway Bay nightlife is mostly about finding a calm and relaxing place to enjoy a night out with friends. This usually means heading up to one of the many rooftop bars in the area, of which there are several. It certainly doesn’t have any of the late night clubs found in nearby Central, but along with Causeway Bay’s propensity for charming vantage points, there are some friendly local bars where you can integrate yourself into some lively bar-room conversation.

Mamoz is an elegant cocktail bar and lounge with stunning views and some of the best bartenders in the area. The signature tipple is their Tear Rock, which the bar famously claims are only available to 20 guests on weekends, but there are several pages of classics to enjoy for the traditionalists. The bar is decked out in marble and leather, with tall stools along the bar and small tables for groups. Don’t miss the glass floor section of the bar which has some hair-raising views directly down 28 floors. The second floor of Mamoz is a breezy outdoor terrace with the most panoramic view of the city on offer in Causeway Bay. Happy hour runs from 17:00 to 21:00 daily.
- Opening Hours: 17:00–01:00

One of the latest ventures from serial restauranteurs, JC Group, Hooray Bar is a spacious and chilled venue offering views over the Harbour. It is definitely our pick for a sundowner cocktail in Causeway Bay. Of course, you are free to sample the mainly Italian/French menu, but we usually prefer to enjoy a cocktail and enjoy the view, which is not panoramic due to surrounding buildings, but is still impressive. The signature cocktails were sweet and pretty, while the classics seem to be on point.
- Opening Hours: 12:00 – 14:30 pm and 18:00 – 22:30
- Location: P502, World Trade Centre, 280 Gloucester Road, Causeway Bay

Dickens Bar is a slice of colonial England, right in the centre of Causeway Bay. This gastro pub in The Excelsior Hong Kong Hotel (a Mandarin Oriental property) is a great place to unwind with a pint of your favourite beer from around the world (there are close to 100 varieties) watch a game of football or rugby and sample a few of the British pub dishes that have made Dickens Bar so famous, especially the British-style Indian curry. Happy hour from 16:00 to 20:00 with a cut-price selection of draft beers, wines and spirits. Read More...

Club @28 at Crowne Plaza
This swanky cocktail bar on the top floor of the Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay sits 28 floors above the city, making it one of the highest vantage points possible in Causeway Bay. Club @28 has great views across Hong Kong, while the sparse use of purple neon and spotlighting makes it a demure place for a tête-à-tête. Being a hotel bar, drinks are a little more expensive than elsewhere and there is a minimum spend for seats out on the terrace (not applicable for hotel guests).
Inn Side Out
This outdoor plaza is a very popular spot in Causeway Bay, with places to sit and chat outside on the incredibly large (for Hong Kong, at least) terrace, and a more rowdy inside section popular for catching sports games on the many big screen TVs. The second-floor bar looks out over the South China Athletics Association (SCAA) and a driving range which adds a unique spectacle to a drink here. The menu is a good old slice of Americana with Buffalo wings, burgers, BBQ ribs and is very reasonably priced. One important note is that Inn Side Out is a Member’s Only Bar so you will have to sign up (HK$120 for the year) if you want to get in on the action.
- Opening Hours: 11:00-01:00
- Location: 2/F, SCAA, 88 Caroline Hill Road, Causeway Bay

Rugby fans in Hong Kong have a place to call home in Ruggers, located just around the corner from Times Square Hong Kong shopping mall. It is a tight and cosy bar, and very popular for expats in the area so expect a lively and fun night out at Ruggers, particularly during the big rugby matches shown on TV. On quieter nights, the bar staff are happy to engage in conversation. With a wide selection of beers on tap, it’s also a great place for fans of harder to find beers and ciders. Beers start from HK$50 but quickly escalate for craft beers.
- Opening Hours: 12:00 – 01:00

If you fancy a few drinks without dressing up for a night on the town, head down to Brecht’s Circle on Leighton Road. This cramped local bar is bizarre and welcoming in equal measure. With a green tint from the strip lighting, paintings of disfigured war criminals and strange silhouettes plastered on the walls, Brecht’s bar gets our vote as the most unusual place to drink in Causeway Bay, which often divides opinions. It is, however, the friendliest spot in town, especially on weekends. Interesting beers on tap include Kronenbourg, Stella and Hoegaarden, with beers starting from HK$55 (even less during Happy Hour), and there is a kitchen serving a range of bar snacks. Happy hour is from 16:00 to 02:00.
- Opening Hours: 16:00 – 02:00
- Location: 123 Leighton Rd., Causeway Bay
Appealing specifically to the gay and LGBT community, Adonis Bar opened in 2015 on Jaffe Road in the centre of Causeway Bay. This friendly bar has a karaoke machine for everyone to get up and strut their stuff, with darts and dice games also popular. Drinks are cheap (starting from HK$30), and foreigners are more than welcome to join in the fun. Adonis Bar is located on the 12th floor of the Allways Centre.
- Opening Hours: 19:00-03:00
- Location: 12/F Allways Centre, 468 Jaffe Road, Causeway Bay
Banker Bar and Lounge
With a crystal chandelier, gold bar, and casino themed seating, this exclusive bar was refurbished in 2015 and is fresher than ever. The live music at Banker is excellent, certainly the best bar in Causeway Bay for some pop and jazz standards, with a few Cantonese classics thrown in for good measure (depending on the clientele on the night). Surprisingly, drinks are very reasonable with cocktails starting from under HK$100, although to book the VIP table requires a HK$4,000 minimum spend. Located next to the MTR on Hennessy Road, this is a popular spot for an after work tipple, helped in no doubt by the 50 single malt whiskies on offer.
- Opening Hours: 13:00 – 23:00 (opens at 16:30 on Sunday and Monday)
- Location: Banker Bar and Lounge, 27/F, Continental Diamond Plaza, 523-527 Hennessy Rd., Causeway Bay
Two Seventy Degrees Rooftop Bar
This stunning rooftop has a sweeping view of the harbour and plenty of sofas to laze back on while enjoying one of limited but well mixed cocktails. Two Seventy Degrees Rooftop Bar has regular parties on weekends when the whole floor is taken over by revellers so look out for announcements on Facebook. Drinks are well-priced here, especially during happy hour which sees all standard drinks on offer for HK$68, along with some bar snacks such as pizzas and cold cut platters. The music here is more on the house side of things so it generally attracts a young crowd.
