Friday Head down to California Vintage (77 Wyndham St. Central, 2525-9808) after work for some Californian fine wine and light dishes to get you into the weekend mood. Then move on to fancy mixers at Entourage (1-5 Lower Elgin St., Central, 2559-8281) and order something off their signature cocktail menu of various longs, mojitos, martinis and rocks. Tipsy enough to unleash your inner rock star? Great! Because it’s time for Sense 99 (2-3/F, 99 Wellington St., Central), where artsy hipsters jam and chat over beers. The grungy little place, located upstairs in a random tong lau, is fully equipped with instruments. Now treat your newly made friends to the next round of drinks at good ol’ Solas (The Centrium, 60 Wyndham St., Central, 3162-3710), and stand on the sidewalk on Wyndham outside its door with hundreds of others till the night drifts into oblivion. Saturday First things first: get over your hangover from last night by having a Bloody Mary at The Globe (Garley Building, 45-53 Graham St., Central, 2543-1941). While at this beloved gastro pub, don’t forget to treat yourself to their big-portion brunch and a couple pints of beers to kick off your Saturday drinking escapade. On a clear day, crossing Victoria Harbour for a mid-afternoon tipple is totally worth it—because on the Ritz’s top floor sits the highest bar in Hong Kong, Ozone (118/F, The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, International Commerce Centre, 1 Austin Rd. West, West Kowloon, 2263-2270). Step out onto the amazing terrace and enjoy a spectacular harbor view and breezy fresh air. If you’re serious about partying tonight, grab a cab to down-and-dirty Wan Chai and check out a brand-new, 35,000-square-foot massive entertainment complex, The Tonno (5 Tonnochy Rd., Wan Chai, 3125-3888), where you can indulge in a drinking marathon coupled with dance floors, karaoke rooms, dart games and late-night Shanghainese buns. The venue doesn’t close till 3am, and what happens to you next is not our responsibility. Sunday You should keep your Sunday slow and laid-back, since you do have to return to work the next day. But that doesn’t mean it has to be dry. Chill out in style at the Captain’s Bar (Mandarin Oriental, 5 Connaught Rd., Central, 2522-0111) and have an Old Fashioned or draught beer (famously served in silver tankards). Before heading home and giving your liver a much-needed break, let the final libation of your legendary boozy weekend be a glass of fine malt at The Blck Brd (6/F, 8 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, 2545-8555).
