Hong Kong Nightlife

Lan Kwai Fong, Soho and Wanchai with their ever so vibrant nightlife vibes are not anything like the Suzy Wong scenes you remember, Hong Kong local expert picks out the top bars and clubs in Hong Kong that are the best places to enjoy the night with friends or family. Insomnia is a bar that blasts 90's rock music in one of the best locations in Lan Kwai Fong and in turn attracts a crowd who is sick and tired of pretentiousness of other places. Its also one the best local expert picks for having one of the best live music bands that play every night.

Volar is one cool and trendy Hong Kong club where you have to know somebody to get in, its on the local's pick because once you get in it would feel weird not to speak English, even though you remind yourself that you are in Hong Kong. Models and expats are the frequent crowd at Volar and the cocktails are a culinary masterpiece. Drop is equally difficult to get in on a busy night but it houses some of the best DJs in Hong Kong, the members only policy applies during busy nights but you can easy get in during quieter weekdays.

Gecko is a really small bar tucked away that it would never be seen as some place classy but its the best Wednesday live jazz bar in Hong Kong that gets so crowded with locals that really know how to enjoy the live music scene. The same 80% of people come to Gecko purely for the sake of good live jazz so if you are looking for a pick up then go elsewhere.

Hong Kong nightlife can be mellow and the bars like ToTT's, Cafe Deco Bar and Grill as well as Pacific Coffee at the Peak have balconies perched high up in the sky for you to take in the marvelous breathtaking Hong Kong skyline and be chill and relaxed at the same time. On the note of chilled and comfortable, you'll love Tivo for its relatively quiet atmosphere, live music and extreme comfortable lighting and decoration which creates the perfect balance between wine and chat. Locals come back because the service is amazingly attentive for a busy bar in Soho. The wine list at Tivo is good value but not extensive so that's why Staunton's bar and cafe makes the list as a local's top picks of Hong Kong bars and clubs. Staunton's is not just for the extensive wine list but also Hong Kong prime nightlife people watching spot.
