Why The Canny Man is special ?

The Canny Man is the latest brainchild of Devil’s Advocate owner-operator Kevin McBarron. With the largest selection of whisky in Hong Kong - 120 malts and blends - it appeals to businessmen, sports fans and pool players.

And on weekends, the amazing Scottish All Day Breakfast with 12 different items, including haggis, may even lure in families. But back to the bar: a curving 12-seater with polished oak counters, high-backed booths and a fireplace area with overstuffed chairs, comfortable leather chesterfields and low tables. It’s cozy and clubby, with an unobtrusive background soundtrack of jazz and contemporary hits.

The drinks menu is grouped by price per glass, with whiskies ranging from $55 all the way up to $1,000 for the Macallan Select Reserve 1946. And there is a wide range of beers from Scotland, England and Belgium. McBarron is establishing The Canny Man’s Malt Whisky Club for serious aficionados that will include tastings and special discounts. Overall, it’s a classy new addition to the Wan Chai scene.

Must try dishes:

Haggis, Neeps & Tatties,

Steak & Ale Pie,

Mince & Tatties,

Lamb Stovies,

Traditional Scotch Pie.

First rate whiskey and rugby bar in the middle of Wan Chai. Downstairs so away from the hassle. Good meal deals and some great Scottish comfort food.

A great "oasis" from the melee of Wanchai, Canny Man has top service in a cosy environment. Whether out partying during the 7s or just hanging out on a Monday night, Canny Man has a great atmosphere and good coverage of the rugby and seasonal sports. A "must visit" if in that part of town.

I usually stay at The Wharney and I often pop into this place as it is my local. The decor is that of a Scottish hunting lodge. The menu is extensive and you can even get haggis. A plus is that hotel guests get a 10% discount. The place also has its share of local regulars.
