Hong Kong has some really cool bars. They probably shouldn't be called bars but cocktail lounges. Hong Kong has its share of smoky dives where you can get a cheap beer, but I am talking here about sophisticated places with famous decorators and expensive and extensive cocktail menus. Last week, my colleague and I went to one of the newest ones located on top of a building right in Central. It is smack in the middle of all the corporate offices and has a good view. You can look into the neighboring office buildings and feel sorry for those unlucky ones still slaving at their desks. This place also has a restaurant, but the reviews have been lousy. Everyone seems to go just to hang out on the roof deck for some drinks. We both ordered a pint of beer. Our two beers plus service charge came to HK$198 which is over US$25. Well, I guess this level of sophistication comes at a price. Not everything is cheap in China.
