Next idea for a bar crawl? We hit all the bars with numbers in their names and here's what we thought.65 Peel
Back to SoHo for our next pick, and even though it’s been open barely over a year, this is already a well-loved staple. A must for beer-lovers, 65 Peel scores top marks for its retro Hong Kong decor. More importantly, this bar boasts a seriously good drinks selection and some of the city’s best fried chicken. 65 Peel St, SoHo, 2342 2224; facebook.com/65peelClub @28
Moving up through the numbers we reach Club @28, which is up on Crowne Plaza’s 28th floor terrace. Overlooking the swimming pool with a vertiginous view over Causeway Bay, Club @28 is a chic, but chill spot for an after-work cocktail or a quiet beer on the weekend. 28/F, Crowne Plaza, 8 Leighton Road, Causeway Bay, 3980 3300; cphongkong.com/eng/club@2899 Bottles

If sitting outside on the steps drinking “Hong Kong’s most affordable craft beer” is more your scene, look no further than 99 Bottles. This tiny bar has a beer list to rival any other in town and is the most casual drinking experience this side of 7/11, the perfect place to make new friends and to try new beers.

Bar Q88
Looking for somewhere a little more high-end? The penultimate stop on our numerically-themed bar crawl, Bar Q88, is all about fine whisky, perfectly served cocktails and quality Champagne. Throw in a little live music and some comfy seats, and you’re ready to lounge. Lobby Level, JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, 2810 8366; pacificplace.com.hk/en/dine/Q88-Wine-Bar
