There’s nothing like a nice, cold pint and a good old-fashioned pub quiz to break up the working week, and luckily for us, there’s one on almost every night of the week in our non-stop city. So why not gather together some of your friends and put your knowledge of trivia to the test at one of these popular watering holes?

Winstons Hong Kong Pub Quiz Sign


Hipster hangout Winston’s serves up a good cuppa joe... as well as a mean round of trivia! Hand in your phone to the quizmaster at either Winston’s location (Sai Ying Pun and Kennedy Town) every other Wednesday at 7.30pm. If you’re not a fan of coffee, try one of their signature espresso martinis to get your mind going.

Throwing joker cards into the mix at this waterfront spot, each team has the chance to double their points in one round—so choose wisely! The only downside is that with pints at $38 and house wines from $35 a glass, you might not be so sharp by the last round. The quiz kicks off at 8pm and wraps up in time for ‘townies’ to catch the last ferry back to Central.
