We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to great cocktails in Hong Kong, but all of those after-hours libations can take a toll on your wallet. If you’re looking for great drinks at affordable prices, head over to Sai Ying Pun and check out some of these amazing happy hours.
Whether it’s cocktails, wine or beer you’re after – Potato Head has something for you at their Sun Down Hour. Head to the Eksotika Bar for HK$60 island-inspired cocktails (try the PTT Mai Tai – a dangerously easy to drink blend of spiced rum, fresh pineapple, almond and lime), HK$50 glasses of wine and HK$55 local Gweilo beers. It’s on every Tuesday – Friday from 5-8pm.

We’ve always loved the Spanish way of life: some chic espadrilles to complete an outfit, afternoon siestas to beat the heat, and of course, a few glasses of sangria to end the day. If this sounds like your best life, head to La Paloma every Thursday – Sunday between 6-8pm for HK$45 glasses of wine or sangria.

Flying Pig Bistro
How do you feel about knocking back a HK$38 glass of prosecco, any day of the week? Because that dream can become a reality at the Flying Pig Bistro.

What’s better than coffee? Cocktails. What’s better than cocktails? Free cocktails. Winstons might just offer up the best ‘deal’ in town: a free round! But you have to play for it. After you order, go head-to-head against the bartender on a coin toss. If you guess correctly, that whole round is on the house. They do ‘Toss the Boss’ every Thursday from 5-10pm, and there are a few rules: only one coin toss per round, and it only applies to alcoholic drinks. May fortune be ever in your favour!

Oh, we could tell stories about these happy hours, but for the sake of friendships, we won’t. Wednesdays from 6-8pm they offer free flow wine and cheese for HK$238 per person, or come back on Friday to ‘cheers’ in the weekend. From 5-8pm you can get free flow Peroni, house wine, house spirits, prosecco and snacks for just HK$200 per person. And if you survive that, you can come back on Sunday for Sunday Sessions – a HK$200 afternoon of free-flow of sangria, Pimm’s and Spritz from 4-7pm. Monday can wait…
