Perhaps the best value happy hour in the city, Wan Chai’s Stone Nullah Tavern opens its doors to thirsty office workers with their “Beat The Clock” happy hour taking place from 5:00pm – 7:00pm daily. Standard drinks including wine, beer, and spirits are priced at an unbelievable HK$1 from 5pm, doubling each 20 minutes thereafter until 7:00pm. This may very well be the best happy hour deal in Hong Kong.

A bit further away from the crowds is where you’ll find SEPA’s delicious happy hour deal. From 3:00pm – 7:00pm daily, you can get a Rosemary Spritz and a select focaccia or Bomba for only HK$88. Choose from SEPA’s Summer Bomba (seriously so good!), Ham & Mushroom Focaccia, or Margherita Focaccia, and if a Rosemary Spritz isn’t your ideal after-work drink, you can switch to select beer or wine. If you’ve never tried SEPA’s bombas before, this is a perfect excuse to head on over.
