The area
Neighbourhood: Central
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 quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
How to get there
  • Central • 6 min walk

The cocktails were incredibly underwhelming, and not mixed properly. However, the free snacks were a welcome surprise and staff were friendly enough. The real reason you come here is for the decor, and it does not disappoint. I'd highly recommend visiting for some photos.

Drinks were good and ambience is really nice. The bar is a bit difficult to find which resulted in my friends and I being a bit late. The male middle eastern-looking manager was so rude to us which ruined the whole experience because of us being a bit late. He got confused with the reservation with one of the other tables and even said "YOU LIED TO MY FACE, GET OUT".

I hope higher management sees this. This is very unprofessional and rude. You don't treat guests, especially OVERSEAS GUESTS this way. I hope this gets noticed.

The Dragonfly Bar is located within the Tai Kwun grounds in Central. Opening hours are 5pm until late each night. This is a bar with a late 19th century art nouveau decor, making much use of Tiffany style lamps and featuring a rather impressive dragonfly sculpture behind the bar counter. They have a delightful indoor area as well as outside seating where a band sets up to play music on weekends as well.

We had a round a drinks here recently. The service was awkward being very rushed in taking drink orders and even attempting to remove cocktails well before we were finished. Signature cocktails tried tasted decent, not up there with our very best cocktail bars but not bad either. Fries snack order was fine. Environs were very unique and worth paying visit to see. We really liked the numerous hanging lamps and bar sculpture, might even return to experience the Dragonfly bar for that reason alone.

Pretty bar, but consistently violates HK's noise laws. Absolutely the worst possible neighbor to have.
