Staunton's Wine Bar + Cafe, est. 1997


Opened in March 1997, months before the 'handover', Staunton's was rapidly voted 'the best people watching bar in HK' a title it still lives up to today.

It is situated next to the mid-levels escalator which 50'000 people a day, use. its outdoor steps prove especially popular at the weekend, for the visiting neighborhood and friends (and pets) to catch up on the week's tales.

One of the first three bars to open in HK's own SoHo, she has stood the test of time. At her 20th anniversary party in 2017, many original customers shared stories of meetings, engagements, marriage, work, sport etc., over the years.

It doesn't stop there. Upstairs is SoHo' largest dining / lounge area - the Balcony. Great for having tea, sunset drinks, brunch or dinner. Whether it is a tapas style bite with your drinks, or something more indulgent or healthy, the balcony is a great focal point for local and visiting customers.

Below, in the ever-popular bar area, at any time of day, Staunton's remains one of CBD's most popular meetings places. With a recently added high stage area, 'see or be seen' with a glass of 'sub equator' wine, many beers on tap, or your favorite Martini.

Why not consider holding a function on the balcony, which always proves a very popular option in HK. Whether cocktail style or seated. A birthday, friends gathering, office celebration or even a wedding reception, each one is personally tailored by one of our 'ambassadors'. Do pop in for a viewing, a chat and a glass of bubbly.

Our staff, many whom have grown up with Staunton’s will try and remember your name, whenever you were last visiting. Open every day of the YEAR from early till late, a greeting will always be waiting. So do come and bring your friends. We always look forward to welcoming you (back).
