Hidden up an alleyway amidst Hong Kong’s sloppiest bar district, this Mexican restaurant has managed to remain a guaranteed good-time spot. The cramped space looks like a run-of-the-mill hipster joint with graffiti’ed walls, hip hop and a rotating roster of specialty tacos. But the bar adds a level of sophistication with its modern cocktails built on Central American flavors like chile, cilantro and tropical fruits. The drinks are spicy and bracingly potent, and the friendly bartenders routinely throw in a few tequila shots on the house.

ProTip
Brickhouse is hard to find; look for the outdoor purse vendor and turn left, or—better yet—ask around. And be sure to ask if Lok is working behind the bar—he’s a local legend.
