The Coolest Nightclubs in Hong Kong

The coolest nightclubs in Hong Kong

By Time Out Hong Kong

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.


One of the best – and newest – clubs you’ll find around Lan Kwai Fong, AfterDarkAndBeyond embraces every aspect of underground club culture with booze-heavy cocktails, a mix of esoteric and crowd-pleasing DJs and tunes, and a delightfully loose party atmosphere. All of which makes it one of the coolest additions to Central in a long time.

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 pretention here, just people who love great music and having a party. Don’t expect any mainstream tunes, the DJs at Oma take 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 at in your flip-flops – there’s still a welcoming atmosphere.
