I only had drinks in the Pawn Botanicals Bar. The drink list is very extensive - so many great drinks/cocktails to choose from. I had a Garden Foraged Negroni which was delicious... and I only had one because prices are so expensive.

They ridiculously overcharged and thus be very careful when you check your bill! The bartender and waiter will put in extra drinks that you didn't order. Very unethical

Nice European Bar with good drinks and wine list. Did not try the food but was a nice atmosphere, if a little sweaty this month.

Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of
Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and
restaurants, both areas are bustling with people –
tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the
highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more
polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart.
Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye –

We did not use a lift. There was a long narrow staircase from the street level to the second floor. I must confess it was not well marked. The staircase faced Johnston Rd.
