It’s the freakin’ weekend and you’re on a mission to let loose… but your bank balance is staring you down, a ‘gentle’ reminder that you should probably calm yourself if you’re hoping to avoid the dreaded 7/11 pot noodle dinners next week. But come on, let’s also be realistic, it’s Friday and we’re going ‘out out’, so why not make a bee line for these five awesome, after-work happy hour deals? They’re light on the wallet and guaranteed to gear you up for a good night in the big city…
Occasionally we find ourselves wandering the streets of Wan Chai come 2am on a school night… Oops. And let’s be honest, the night more than likely started with the innocent notion of having ‘just one drink’, somehow turning into a little game of ‘beat the clock’ at Stone Nullah Tavern. And with happy hour starting from 5pm at just $1 a drink and doubling up every 20 minutes, we’re right there with you girls, fists full of coins and the taste of morning regret (and quite possibly Mc Donalds).
When: Monday to Friday from 5 – 7pm
Where: Stone Nullah Tavern, G/F, 69 Stone Nullah Lane, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
How much: $1, doubling in price every 20 minutes
