Hong Kong's Best Live Music Venues

The raucous bars and clubs of Lan Kwai Fong often dominate any discussion of things to do come nightfall in Hong Kong, but there’s much more to the city’s nightlife scene than that. If you want to sip a drink and tap your feet to the rhythm of some live music, you’re in the right place. There’s a truly excellent selection of venues with regular live music nights that cater to all tastes. Here are our favourites.

Fringe Club

Fringe Club

This iconic building — a Victorian-era monument — houses one of the most dynamic performance venues in the city, taking in countless live music performances. Expect everything from jazz, rock, blues and a whole lot more at the Fringe Club Get me there {{title}} {{taRatingReviewTotal}} {{taRatingReviewText}} Address {{address}} Website {{website}} More info .

Dusk Till Dawn

Dusk Till Dawn

The least 'classy' venue on this list, if it’s a more gritty experience you seek, Dusk Till Dawn is for you. The excellent live cover band provides a down and dirty, party-fuelled music bonanza that’s great if you’re looking to cut loose and dance the night away without a care in the world.

The Wanch

The Wanch

Offering live music all week long with zero cover charge, The Wanch Get me there {{title}} {{taRatingReviewTotal}} {{taRatingReviewText}} Address {{address}} Website {{website}} More info has been delighting music fans in Hong Kong for more than 30 years. Any night is worthwhile here but we suggest catching the acoustic happy hour which typically runs Monday to Friday from 6–8pm.

Ned Kelly’s Last Stand

A masterclass in old-school showmanship,  Ned Kelly’s Last Stand is a Tsim Sha Tsui mainstay with a house band that plays live every night. Expect loads of jazz and blues classics peppered with some hilariously entertaining skits (you haven’t lived until you’ve seen a grown man use a teapot as an authentic musical instrument).
