Tin Tin Bar

I didn't really intend to write a review on this place because it was rather boring. The cocktails were unexciting and the snacks being offered were rather ordinary (although there were some interesting Chinese style snacks on the menu). Then again, I asked myself how often would I experience an exciting meal? or an exciting day for that matter. Life is boring most of the time and it is the occasional excitement that gives us the much needed sparks. Like it or not, boredom of different scale is all around us, so go have some fun whenever possible!

Anyhow, the Tin Tin Bar (vs the Ching Ching Bar at the Hyatt Regency at K11)  is situated inside the Hyatt Regency Sha Tin. Why Sha Tin and in the middle of ... nowhere? ( Tai Wai / University Station to be more exact) I am still puzzled about the location which is right next to The Chinese University of Hong Kong, with one side facing the Tolo Harbour. Another interesting element of this new hotel is its height, the highest is 15th floor.

Although its cocktails and snacks were boring as mentioned, I quite enjoyed the setting and atmosphere. I know, it sounded kind of lame but that's the true. One of the key factors for my liking was the space ... high ceiling together with spacious private space between tables.

I would come back just because of the setting / lower customer traffic (due to its location I suppose). Oh yeah, it has a live band during the evening as well. 

  • Atmosphere 
  • Light Traffic + live bands
  • Location a bit far and in the middle of nowhere.  (perhaps that's why I would likely return)
Avg Spending: HKD 100 -200 per person

Its location is good for those of us who are stuck in the N.T. :) From what I heard way back when, its location allowed them to serves as a "training" hotel for those at the nearby university and also to offer a place of rest to those who need to travel frequently between HK & Shenzhen.

It's also not near Tai Wai but at University station on the MTR East rail.

@Cheeky Angel: Yeah! it is right across from the University Station! I heard the same about hotel as a training ground for students as a "token" to use the land which belongs to the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I also heard that there have been some arguments between the two parties in regards to that "training deal" now that the hotel is up and running ... let's wait and see :)
