There’s no shortage of amazing night clubs in Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong’s party central, that offer a big, grandiose experience with all the bells and whistles. But sometimes you want a club that’s a bit more on the fringes, offering a more underground and down-to-earth party experience. If that’s what you’re after, here’s our take on the coolest clubs in Hong Kong.
A super-cool underground venue that’s interested in one thing: music that’s going to have you dancing all night long. Like every other venue on this list, there’s no pretension here, just people who love great music and having a party. Don’t expect any mainstream tunes, the DJs attake their music very seriously, so you’ll be getting the very best in techno, house and electronic.
Elaborate is an understatement when it comes to describing the ambience at Ophelia. Every single decoration revolves around the theme of peacocks. That, plus the atmospheric lighting, the beaded curtains and waitstaff adorned in traditional cheongsams, lends the place the atmosphere of a high-end opium den. It’s tremendously exotic, and it works. The music runs the gamut from funk to disco to house. And while the clientele is arguably better-heeled than at many clubs — this isn’t a club to roll up in your flip-flops — there’s still a welcoming atmosphere.
With residents that include primo local DJs like Ocean Lam and Basil Tam and the fact that it also plays host to awesome monthly club night Hypnotic,is one of the best spots in Hong Kong for late-night partying. Keep an eye on their Facebook page to learn about their next big event.
