Home to some of the world's tastiest wines alongside terrific cocktails and live sports, Staunton's Wine Bar is a Hong Kong nightlife institution.

One of the most popular places to see-and-be-seen sipping wine
and cocktails in Hong Kong, Staunton’s Wine Bar has achieved near-institution
status in this electric city.

A ground-breaker in many ways, Staunton’s Wine Bar was one of
the first bars in the city to label itself as a wine bar, and one of the first
establishments opened alongside the famous Central-Mid Levels Escalator and
Walkway System – the longest covered escalator system in the world. Not only do
the escalators provide Hong Kong residents with a reprieve from the steep
streets of the city, they provide easy access to the bar and an endless stream
of people-watching opportunities once there, which has no doubt helped the
bar’s popularity. Nowadays, the areas surrounding the Central-Mid Levels are
home to many bars, but there is still only one Staunton’s.

As you enter Staunton’s, your eyes will be drawn to one massive
back-lit wall that is covered entirely with stylish shelves, all filled to the
edge with wine bottles. This is your first tip off that Staunton’s is home to a
vast array of wines from all over the New and Old Worlds. In addition, they
pour a full range of expertly crafted cocktails and beers from all over the
globe. Staunton’s also serves up tasty food with a side of international
sporting events, broadcast on flat screens around the venue, and most nights
you will find an overflow crowd spilling out on to the sidewalk taking it all
in.
