Sip, sip, hooray! A Causeway Bay happy hour is calling. From rooftop bars like Cadillac to more chilled vibes at Lounge Hakuba, here’s where to go for happy hour in Causeway Bay!
For most of us, when we think of happy hours our minds likely flutter to Central and the always happening SoHo sooner than the densely packed and brightly lit streets of Causeway Bay. There’s more to this buzzy neighbourhood than being a shopping paradise – yes, you can actually find quiet nooks for a tipple! If you’re looking to indulge in a post-work drink (or two) further east on the island, we’ve got you covered with some surprisingly delectable Causeway Bay happy hour deals.
