When it’s that time of night for contemplative conversations and high-brow debates, you could do worse than to have them over one of 28 HongKong Street’s world-class concoctions. 28 HongKong St., 6533-2001
And after staying sophisticated for as long as you can, it’s time for shots. If you’re up for a challenge, you can attempt to write your name in Mogambo history by completing their infamous 15-shot challenge. 3 Canton St., 6438-9808
