Cassio
Cassio

Cassio starts off its evenings as your standard Spanish restaurant, the kind you’d find anywhere in the world. But once the late hours creep in and the DJ hits the decks, it’s transformed into that rare type of club, the kind that scratches a necessary retro-pop tunes itch. Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, Prince, Michael Jackson – they’re all given their due, and with its outdoor terrace-turned-dancefloor, it’s a club where you can truly let you hair down while soaking in the city.

FLM
FLM

Spread out over two floors and packed most nights of the week, FLM is one of Hong Kong’s biggest gay clubs, a place where the LGBT community comes to unwind and dance the night away. Downstairs, the epic dancefloor sees the crowds going till all hours. Upstairs, it’s a little more relaxed, the kind of place where you can stop in for a drink and a bit of a chat. Either way, you’re right in the middle of the mix.

Forever Lounge
Forever Lounge

Among the ever-changing tastes and popular sports bars of Tin Hau, this Chinese pub has been keeping it local for as long as we can remember. You can tell from hundreds of yards away, its blindingly bright ‘80s neon sign and jukebox blaring hair-metal makes it a far cry from others in the area. There’s no better place to get a true Hong Kong experience, the ‘lounge’ serving up ice-cold beer buckets, alongside its darts boards and dice games.

Ned Kelly’s Last Stand
Ned Kelly’s Last Stand

By NewBase Content

It’s debatable whether Ned Kelly’s is really ‘Hong Kong’s oldest bar’, but there’s no doubting the long-standing Australian pub has been around for a good long while, first opening its doors in the early ‘70s and seeing a steady stream of regular clientele ever since. Forever packed, its vintage aesthetic hosts a raucous live jazz band seven nights a week, alongside ice-cold beers served tableside at a price cheaper than most.

Neway Karaoke
Neway Karaoke

By NewBase Content

Throw a rock in Causeway Bay, Mong Kok or any populated area of the city, and you’re bound to hit a karaoke bar. It’s a Hong Kong pastime and a late-night weekend favourite, where large groups blare out tunes while downing whisky and green tea. If you’re up for the singing challenge, Neway is one of the city’s most famous chains, with private VIP rooms, food and drinks packages, and plenty of international songs to choose from.

Ruby
Ruby

By NewBase Content

A cavernous spot in Central, Ruby cleverly finds a workaround for Hong Kong’s sky-high rents, by squeezing an underground club into a regular bar space. Featuring top local DJs, it’s a prime choice for those seeking the city’s electronic music scene, with a rotating alternative selection of everything from deep house to disco. Decked out in dark red colours and vintage film posters, it’s an in-the-know club that’s not made for the masses.

Volar
Volar

Smack dab in the middle of Lan Kwai Fong, Volar is one of Hong Kong’s most popular clubs, a cavernous place where the bouncers are firm and the crowd is consistently beautiful. Get past the doormen, and you’re treated to a place where dark aesthetics contrast against the many blue lights. Expect more mainstream tunes compared to other clubs in the city, including a heavy emphasis on house and techno, with the occasional hip-hop night.
