Stopped by Captain's Bar at MO for a round of drinks in the early afternoon recently and had a predictably good time. Servers and staff remain seasoned and conduct themselves in a natural way, bartenders continue to mix old-fashioned just right. Environs are superb if...you appreciate, old colonial decor and ambiance. With an air of nostalgia from bygone decades, one can pull up a seat in one of the red leather sofas at MO and just merge into the past at Captain's Bar. Enjoy a round or two before moving on to dinner or whatever next rests in the cards. This is an institutional venue in Central, beloved by many near and far. Well worth a visit if staying at MO or in search for some of HK's longest standing bars and restaurants.More

The first time came to Captain’s bar. My colleagues and I were having a great time here last Thursday. The food and the service are outstanding. Owen asked about our preferences and suggested a few drinks for us. We were pleased with those cocktails he...made. All of the staff here are very nice and polite. We feel very warm.More

…as it’s obviously very fancy and you will receive flawless customer service. I mainly came here (before 5pm so that I could still wear shorts) to try their exclusive Young Master beer and I am glad I did because it was fantastic…as well as being...served in a silver tankard! Design errs towards plush but that’s to be expected and the prices, whilst high even for HK, aren’t TOO bad considering how much you would be paying for similar drinks at far less comfortable settings nearby.More

One of my all time favourite bars in HK and have been here a few times before. Had come with my office colleague a couple of days back. The decor and ambience is what i love most about the Captains bar. A typical english pub...kind of a set-up. Very comfortable sofas and chairs. A nice quite kind of atmosphere. Not too loud. Extremely classy. Great collection of draught beers - Captains Bar beer, Asahi, Brooklyn and Carlsberg. They serve the beers in this lovely silver chalice. Nice and chilled. That silver chalice is something i havent seen in any other bar in HK. Absolutely lovely! They have these Indian appetisers - Lamb samosas, Cheese Pakora, Fish Pakora, Chicken wings. Those are fantastic. Go really well with the alcohol. They have a brilliant chef who is able to dish out these delicious Indian appetisers. They have a great collection of sauces as well which they serve with these dishes. Service is great as well. Very polite and nice staff that they have there. Overall one of the classiest bars in HK. Perfect for all occasions - be it an after-work drink with colleagues or a nice quite drink with your partner. A definite recommendation and I wish the bar stays absolutely the same and nothing chnages... because it is perfect!!More

My favourite time to be here is around 3:30pm. It is very quiet and the service is basically 1 to 1. A great place to drink before going upstairs for dinner and to evade the crowds. All the booths has comfortable seating. This is old...school Hong Kong hospitality. The bartenders have very little attrition so you get to develop relationships which adds to the experience. 4 martinis later, it is time for dinner.More

I've probably been visiting this bar for twenty years plus. It never changes. Quiet during the afternoon. Super busy in the early evening and then mellow in to the later hours. Service and drinks range is great. It's not cheap but you will relax there....Staff will try to remember you if you go more than 2 or 3 times which makes a difference in Hong Kong. Comfortable seating. And the bonus is you get to watch and listen as numerous business types carry on apparently earnest conversations throughout the day. If they have a live band on later in the evening they are generally very good.More

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
