    Bar closings

    When I was in HK in September, I was dismayed to find that two of my favorite watering holes had closed their doors:

    Mes Amis, Pottinger St, Central: I've been to the one on Ashley Rd. in TST, but the Pottinger location had a more laid-back atmosphere, and a great location.

    Kangaroo Pub, Haiphong Rd, TST: An outstanding location overlooking Kowloon Park, good atmosphere, and a diverse crowd.

    Anyone else mourn their passing, or have any additional info about them?

    I'll be back in HK next week, so any suggestions on suitable alternatives would be appreciated.

    Go to Apres at the Pottinger Street/Wyndham Street junction. Steven - the former manager of the Kangaroo Pub is now managing this place.

    the Kangaroo Pub reopens!

    The famous Kangaroo Pub once located on the Kowloon side is going to reopen!
    As Stephen puts it, the Kangaroo Pub shall open (again) 52 - 62 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai.

    Back in Toronto now - after 10 1/2 years in HK

    that's quite some leap, even for a 'roo! Question is, when?

    I am fans of kangaroo Pub in the previous years! It is a great news that it re-open! Would you be sure there is same manager or boss run this Pub?

    Yes it is - and you have responded to a post nearly 2 years old - The Kangaroo Bar in Wanchai has been open for a long time now and is doing very well.
