Something about Hong Kong has us indulging in free-flow brunches at every chance we get, but dinner options that include drink deals are often overlooked. We’re never ones to say “no” to a good offer, so we’ve done the legwork and have rounded up some of the best boozy bargains in the city. After all, we want to make sure you’re getting the best of the best! Whether you’re planning a special occasion dinner, or just looking for an excuse to treat yourself, we’ve lined up some of our favourite spots for free-flow dining deals.
If you’re looking to treat yourself with a top-notch steak, then Blue is always a great option. And with the restaurant’s secret off-menu free-flow drinks deal, we may just be making this place a regular spot. For guests dining in the downstairs seating area of Blue, all you need to do is order the 12oz Grass Fed Sirloin Tara Valley, Australian Black Angus ($280, including free-flow fries!), and for just an extra $90, you can also enjoy free-flow red or white wine to complete your meal!

Another “secret” free-flow deal can be found at The Flying Elk. If you’re after a taste of Nordic comfort food, be sure to head to the Wyndham Street restaurant, and order either the veal schnitzel “Björn Frantzén” ($280), or the Fish & chips “tfe” ($220). When enjoying either of these hearty dishes, diners need only pay an extra $90 to enjoy free-flow house wines.

This small, local, lovable spot epitomises “cheap and cheerful”. Though we’ve yet to check it out ourselves, its unlimited food and drinks for $80 deal (yes, that’s Hong Kong dollars!) has placed it at the top of our list. With local Chinese dishes, lots of vegetarian alternatives, and unlimited beer, it’s no surprise this place has won rave reviews. Low-key and overflowing with energy, we hear Mr Wong himself is friendly, welcoming and hilarious – with a goal to make sure everyone in his presence has enough to eat and drink. Oh, and it’s just a convenient three minute walk from Langham Place and Mong Kok MTR station exit C3.
