What you'll do

CURRENTLY RATED THE #1 AIRBNB BAR EXPERIENCES IN HONG KONG.

Hong Kong seems to hold a competition for the most relaxed bar in Asia. First criteria: Be challenging to find.

Forget all the popular touristy pub crawl sites. In these experiences, you'll discover the best-hidden laneway bars the city has to offer, As we'll be sneaking upstairs and downstairs into unmarked doors through alleyways and above establishments.

THINGS TO KNOW
- This isn't a budget "pub crawl" - you can drink a lot or a little, you choose.
- Drinks aren't included in the experiences - but happy to give recommendations.
- If booking for more than six people, we recommend doing this experience as a private group, available for HKD 100 more per person.

Since we operate at 5 pm, the bar staff is a little less busy than usual, and that means you'll get a chance to interact with local mixologist, ask for custom orders, and get time to plan the rest of your night as you explore the '50s of great bars this city has to offer.

All food and drink are at your own expense. Please advise me of any food allergies so I can accommodate you.

I'm Hayley, born and raised in Hong Kong. I'm a retired fashion designer & lifestyle blogger (hayleylyla.com), travel influencer (@hayleylyla) and social media consultant.

Having led hong kong lifestyle experiences for over 1.5 years. I find nothing more exciting than hosting great events where people learn something new. When I'm not Instagramming, I love getting lost in the streets of the Eternal City, that's how I discovered hidden gems and unusual locations that I can't wait to show you.

Where you'll be

During this experience, you will get to uncover selected bars or lounges that usually take months for others to discover. Usually, we can walk everything but the tour can be customised (by request)

At the end of the night, if you want to stay out, I'll also point u to places you might want to visit afterwards! I'll share with you my creative guide map upon booking.

This experience is for those of you that want an unforgettable experience, with a super cool host and unique venues. This is not for bargain hunters for this experience is all about high end, hand crafted cocktails in unique locations, which doesn't come cheep. This is for those of you who want to experience a special evening, in Hong Kong's best vibe neighborhood of SOHO, in places you are unlikely to find on your own. Thanks Hayley for making this experience so personal interesting and friendly. You all can read about our night in my next novel, Omar T in Hong Kong, for I'm certain he will describe our night in detail :)

A must do experience. Hayley was an amazing host. She made me feel very relaxed and she was very friendly. We talked about our experiences and about Hong Kong. It felt like I was hanging out with a friend. She took me in 3 different bars, all with their own unique styles and own menus. This experience it’s not only about having a few cocktails, it’s about meeting locals and seeing the city from a different point of view. Trust me, it’s worth every penny! Book now!

I absolutely loved the experience. The bars Hayley brought us to were very classy. I got to try a lot of unique cocktails I’d never tried before. And no kidding that I wouldn’t never found these places by myself! You’ll enjoy this experience best if you go in with an open, present mind. While the drinks were excellent, the real value comes from the good time and the conversations you have with the host or other guests. Just like going to normal bars! It’s never just about the alcohol — but what you might get from talking to someone new.

Hayley is very good at choosing bars. These aren’t tourist filled bars, they’re very classy and chill, and fantastic for a relaxing evening. Not to mention the drinks are all unique. Money well spent.

This is an awesome experience if you love creative cocktails and exploring hidden gems of cities! At first (before my experience) I was wondering if it would be worth it and if I could’ve found these bars on my own, but upon entry of the first bar I immediately knew I was going to have the best night that I couldn’t have had on my own. Hayley is very knowledgeable about the places she takes you and knows most of the owners which gives you an even more personalized experience! She shares her passions about the place and her favorite cocktails to have at each place, with the reason behind it. The cool thing was that my husband and I immediately felt like her friends visiting from out of town. She’s warm and friendly and very easy to talk to. This was a one of a kind, unforgettable experience! Hayley goes above and beyond. Highly recommended.

I totally recommend this experience. I was a bit skeptical/shy since it's one of my first AirBnb hangout experience but it was so great. I would have not been able to do this by myself or through any kind of online guide, Hayley is very charismatic and she has a great knowledge of her city but also about many other topics related to this experience : cocktail mixing, hong kong life, chinese culture in general and worldwide culture shocks, I have spent an amazing time in amazing bars that I wouldn't have find by myself. I loved this experience and I enjoyed spending time with Hayley, a must do in Hong Kong for sure! Especially at the beginning of your trip!
