The bar/health club/snack shop at 22 Robinson Road, Mid-Levels, offers a fully-equipped gym with two certified personal trainers plus a rooftop swimming pool. Cool off downstairs at the piano bar with televised sporting events and a variety of nibbles - from fresh fruit, juice and muffins before work to snacks, sandwiches and pizza afterwards. Health club fees range from $100 to $2,800. No membership is required for diners. For more information phone 525-3977.
