Beautiful,, old style bar with a great atmosphere. Eating at the bar is great if alone or one other. The most informal, formal bar in the world at the hotel with fantastic service.

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.

Guests in comfortable attire are welcomed throughout the day. After 5pm, ladies are kindly asked to wear elegant attire and proper footwear. Gentlemen are kindly asked to wear closed shoes at all times with smart shirt and long trousers after 5pm.
