This was a bit of a bonus as the main draw here was the nearby former Asia TV studios (sadly a fail - more on that in future reports).

No history on this place. There are many HK equivalents of our UK derps. Sometimes parents pass away and their kids don't want to live out in 'the sticks' as the Sai Kung region of Hong Kong is seen as by many. Sometimes parents die and have no children/close relatives to leave property to.

Second guessing here but I think the demise of this bar could have been linked to the closure of the ATV studios and a subsequent drop in its clientele.

Anyhow - nothing too dramatic but got enough pictures to merit a report.

Loyally waiting for the master that never returns:

You should have told me you were this way, I've got loads of things on the go at the moment!

Was ATV the studios that closed recently? Or is it the old Shaw Bros one?

I should have done if I'd thought about it. Will give you a shout next time mate.
