Inclusive, progressive, rock and roll dive bar is not the first combination of words one expects to see when reading about bars but that’s exactly what The Pontiac is. This Hong Kong stalwart has built a safe, non-judgemental space for all, with open arms from the all-female team led by bar manager Jen Queen and co-founder Beckaly Franks. Settle into said safe space for a night of excellent chaos, craft cocktails and a highly curated playlist which ends with The Pontiac’s legendary midnight special. From the bar’s beginnings as being likened to Coyote Ugly, The Pontiac goes beyond that to showcase real cocktail credentials and female talent in the industry. It’s the ideal home for a quick one, or a night of raucous dancing. Drinks here range from local ingredients to funky slushies and the bar’s infamous Hobnail with blended Scotch, ginger, Averna, bitters and orange oil.
