Ned Kelly was an Australian outlaw (folk hero to some) who was hanged in 1880 when he was 25 years old, making this Aussie saloon famous since 1972 for Dixieland jazz much older than its namesake. Its house band, playing nightly from 9:30pm, brings in an appreciative mostly middle-aged international crowd. Because it also serves Australian bar food, from cottage pie (minced beef, onions, vegetables, and mashed potatoes) to fish and chips, you can also stop by for a meal. It's a rumble-tumble kind of place, not unlike what you'd find in the Outback, and with the band on a raised stage, the audience has a good view no matter which wooden table they've staked out. Happy hour is daily until 9pm for beer and certain drinks, but if you order something as high class as a cocktail you'll pay the full HK$75 price.
