It’s an oenophile’s dream come true: an unpretentious wine bar with a 200 label-strong menu starring affordable vintages under HK$100 per glass. A pour of Soaring Kite Blanc de Blancs, for example, costs a mere HK$75 – and that’s outside the twice-a-day happy hours. Shady Acres’ inviting prices are matched by its cosy atmosphere, complete with wood furniture, quirky reading material and an eclectic selection of board games.
