And the meetings keep rolling in – and you’re out of ideas on where to go. Lugging your laptop around, trekking through the alleys of Hong Kong desperately trying to find a café doesn’t sound too appealing does it. What makes it worse – it’s not a morning meeting! You’re first meeting is scheduled in the late afternoon with a few more later on in the night.

If you find yourself with the flexibility of arranging the place for your rendezvous – go out and explore another district! Let’s kick off with a favorite: Western District

 

Tea break in Sheung Wan

aaaaaaaaa1

The calm before the storm…of brainstorming sessions & negotiations. Kick off with a quiet meeting at teakha and choose from their vibrant range of specialty teas (Indian, Chinese, Japanese, you name it)! To save yourself from the embarrassment of having a growling stomach, pair your tea with a delicious baked good so you don’t make a complete fool of yourself.

Caffeine boost in Sai Yin Pun

bbbb1

A personal favorite! Featuring a cinema-style façade, Winston’s Coffee is quite a gem. They make killer coffee so you can satisfy your need for caffeine (even though you’ve already had one) any time of the day. Pair it with a scrumptious hot-cross bun and your meeting will be over before you even know it!

Not 1, or 2, but 3 fluffy pancakes with copious amounts of butter, smothered in maple syrup from STACK.

Boozy session in Kennedy Town

Coffee isn’t doing it. You’re craving something a little stronger, an atmosphere a little more chill for your last meeting. You wouldn’t even call it a meeting – more like a gathering for a potential business talk. “Have a sick night b*tches at Missy Ho’s!
