Knutsford Terrace - Where the Locals and Expats Mix:

If you're looking for something a little more local then you'll have to venture off Hong Kong Island and its well worth the visit. Knutsford Terrace in Tsim Sha Tsui is a strip of bars and restaurants which offer a more diverse mix of locals, expats and tourists, while still delivering plenty of choice on the bar front, meaning Knutsford has all the ingredients of a good night.

Most of the bars here are packed out a little earlier than Lan Kwai Fong and Wan Chai, from 8pm onwards; they also wind up a little earlier, around 12am. One of the added bonuses of Knutsford is that almost all the establishments have an al fresco option.

Undoubtedly, the most famous stop on the Knutsford Terrace trail is Bahama Mamas, where the beach-themed bar seems to keep the crowd firmly in party mode. Also worth a look, just round the corner is the Observatory Court area, which hosts an ever-increasing number of bars - keep an eye out for Eight Fine Irishmen. Also worth a mention is Aqua Spirit in Tsim Sha Tsui, which features some of the best views of Hong Kong imaginable, as well as staff who know their stuff when it comes to cocktails.
