    Awesome atmosphere and great service at 001 - non intrusive service with friendly staff and the best grilled cheese I've ever tasted, comes with tomato soup! Great jazz music for a chilled night!

    Great hidden gem for drinks! Extremely difficult to find at night when all the business are close. They have just a doorbell and the walls are painted black/grey - too dark to tell.

    Excellent speakeasy-style bar with a great atmosphere. The Earl Grey Martini lives up to the hype, but other originals like the Laphroaig Project are excellent too.

    The most expensive bar I went to in Hong Kong, but I loved the relaxed environment. If you have a larger group or want privacy😉, it's worth it to spring for a private booth ($1000 HKD minimum spend).

    Whiskey bar that presses a grilled cheese so delicious it invariably prompted a midnight trek spanning the entire stretch of Hollywood Road in 4" heels just for one ooey-gooey bite. Totally worth it.

    True, Early Grey Martini is impressive! Nice jazz music, great atmosphere. Must try (if you manage to find it and to get in).

    Besides overpriced fancy cocktails they have a great bar food menu. Lobster roll and grilled cheese with tomato soup and stuff like that.

    Amazing bar which is located in hidden place with NY atmosphere inside and nice jazz music which reminds of Great Gatsby epoch. Unfortunately Leo hasn't appeared))

    The cocktails are well worth the search; try the Blood & Sand, with scotch, orange juice, cherry herring, sweet vermouth and garnished with brandied cherries, or the Midnight Manhattan with home-made Read more

    The speakeasy of all speakeasies in HongKong. Great drinks (Old Fashioned!), amazing food, and gone are the days when the service was awful. A firm fave.

    Come with a group and get a booth for a minimum $1,000 spend. Include some cheese sandwiches!

    Sit at the bar, to get close to the action, have a chat with the friendly bartender for in depth understanding of the drinks.

    The 001 team take great pride in their cocktails, and it shows. Awesome atmosphere, reserve a table, and make sure you can navigate the wet market!

    "A notoriously hard-to-find speakeasy, situated behind an unmarked black door between Graham Street and Queen's Road Central."

    An absolute treasure hunt. Beautiful drinks, ambience and interiors. Cocktails are $140+ but so worth it !

    No sign, just a doorbell. Walls painted black, low brass-colored ceiling, just the right amount of dark, swank and jazz.

    Never had a good experience here. Expensive but not reflected in product. Service is appalling. Saw friends, went to say hi. Was told i had to leave or back to my table coz i wasn't allowed to stand.

    The service has declined here significantly. Cocktails taste a little watery now just through lack of ice. The food service is slow and they have run out of simple dishes twice in a row now.
