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 the best pub quiz nights in Hong Kong?

The Aftermath

Tucked away at the bottom of a neon-lit staircase on Wyndham Street is a hip hole-in-the-wall bar called The Aftermath. Not only are they supporters of local live music and arts, but they also lend their venue to the popular Millennial Quiz Night for two Mondays of the month, hosted by quizmaster Bailey Atkinson. Previous themes include Marvel, 1990s cartoons, and Harry Potter. Prizes for the winning team range from disposable cameras and champagne to sponsored goodies like craft gin, but all quizzers can expect to get a participation ribbon (because there’s nothing more millennial than that). Check Millennial Quiz Night’s Facebook page or Instagram for tickets and more details.

When: Twice a month on Mondays

Where: The Aftermath, L/G, 57–59 Wyndham Street, Central
