Sense 99 was my first introduction to Hong Kong nightlife and even on first impressions I loved it.
2/F-3/F 99F Wellington Street
scending up a steep flight of stairs you will find Sense 99. A two level private bar, live music venue, exhibition space and chill-out lounge, open only on weekends or for special occasions. Sense 99 is set in a old prewar building with high ceilings, original tiled floors and small outdoor terraces overlooking the street; this combined with the mismatched vintage leather chairs and revolving artwork sets the scene for a no fuss or frills lounge bar. The first floor is the bar and the second floor is where you’ll find the microphone, piano, drum kit & guitars waiting for whomever wants to give it a go. There is also a great mix of chilled out characters here and it’s always a good place to post up for a few beers, a laugh and some general chit chat.
