Employees Only - Hong Kong cocktails with style

A visit to Hong Kong is not complete without a visit to tucked away cocktail bar. The cocktail bar is essential to understanding this vibrant cosmopolitan city, and yet, choosing one among the hundreds of choices can feel daunting and intimidating.

Employees Only Speak Easy

While the original Employees Only speak easy was an import from New York, the Hong Kong version retains its own flair and has a uniquely Asian and Hong Kong feel. Located in the trendy Lan Kwai Fong district, Employees Only serves up some of the most exquisite cocktails in the city.

The head bartender, Owen, is originally from Texas, but brings his southern charm and his gift for gab to this speak easy that is often crowded and never dull. On the weekends starting about 10pm, Owen will serve you delightful cocktails for around HK$30 from the side of the unassuming entrance to the bar.


Reservations for larger groups are encouraged and can be made on the establishment's website.

You can stop by and see Owen below.
