With the year coming to an end, slowing down the work, and the increasingly cold weather- it’s perfect climate to savor the warmth of Whiskey! Other spirits have become very popular in the last few years – especially Gin. However, I see myself always coming back to this classic spirit enjoyed by all – The Whiskey! If you feel the same, you will enjoy a tipple at these top listed whiskey bars in Hong Kong.
This is one of the cozy little whiskey bars in Hong Kong, stocking whiskeys from all over the world. And, behind the bar, you will find Tony – the whiskey magician (yeah, that is what my friends and I call him). Here you won’t need to worry about your friends who are non-whiskey fans as Ginger’s elaborate menu has room for craft beers and spirits like gin, tequila, etcetera.

Upon Wyndham Street, we have Stockton that depicts the 1890s London whiskey den. The plush leather couches and a secret cigar room makes it a nice place to hang with friends. The lip-smacking bar bites, “Minds Undone” cocktail series inspired by great writers like Ernest Hemingway, Dorothy Parker, etcetera and the sticky toffee pudding will have you come back.

Foxglove symbolizes the adventures of an ancient globe trotter Frank Minza from the 50s. Hidden behind the face of an umbrella shop named FoxShop, this bar’s ambiance will remind you of your adventure thrills! Like me, you might too find the whiskey cocktails a bit pricey but, honestly, they are worth every penny. And the live Jazz performances is the cherry on the cake. Dear, a date night at this luxurious speakeasy will up your game to a whole new level.
Bonus – ask for Frank’s Library (that’s all I am gonna tell you).
