Underground Bar: Shek Tong Tsui just got cooler with Casa, a neighborhood bar that offers snacks and craft beers from noon to midnight daily.

Look & Feel: You wouldn’t be able to guess how spacious this underground pub really is, judging from its humble ground floor entrance. But walk down a flight of stairs and suddenly you’re looking at rows and rows of communal tables, a bar that never ends, and a corner for lounging and darts. Gray walls and high ceilings are two distinct features.

On the Menu: Fancified bar snacks that thankfully don’t cost a fortune are served on slate slabs — they’re a bonus to the core menu of endless booze. Craft beers from the likes of local brewery Gweilo are available, as well as basic cocktails, wines, and spirits.

Service: The staff are quick to help and if you’re having trouble whittling down your choices, don’t be afraid to ask.

Jeng: The large and inviting space is a breath of fresh air, rid of the pretension that similarly sized venues in Central and more established districts might display. The large selection of alcohol on offer is equally impressive. If you come at the right times, you might be able to catch a live music performance.

Not So Jeng: Sounds get trapped in this basement joint, so if you’re looking for a quiet night out and there’s a live band playing, you can pretty much throw those plans out the window.

Great For: A relaxing weekend hangout.

FYI: There’s a sister Casa in Sai Kung!
