Popular among both tourists and local people, Lan Kwai Fong is arguably Hong Kong’s premier nightlife destination. While there’s no shortage of bars on these well-trodden streets, a few pointers will help you scope out the very best drinks and ambience. Here’s a list of the best bars in Lan Kwai Fong, whether you are looking for tempting cocktails, city views or late nights on the dance floor.
Did you know – Culture Trip now does bookable, small-group trips? Pick from authentic, immersive Epic Trips, compact and action-packed Mini Trips and sparkling, expansive Sailing Trips.
Fang Fang’s signature cocktail list is inspired by the five elements of the Chinese zodiac and is as creative as it gets. You may be wary of some of the ingredients, like kimchi vodka or Sichuan pepper, but their talented mixologists will ensure each drink is just as delicious as it is unique. The modern and sophisticated space also incorporates one of the best restaurants in Lan Kwai Fong, serving mouth-watering contemporary Chinese cuisine and headed up by executive chef Kent Lee Chin Heng, formerly of Hakkasan Mumbai and Kai Mayfair, so be sure to stay for dinner after happy hour.
As its name implies, Insomnia is the bar that never sleeps. This casual but lively venue has been around for as long as most local partygoers can remember, serving strong drinks, live music and a no-fuss ambience. The main draw is that they are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week – so the party never has to end. Don’t expect trendy interiors or elaborate cocktails, but simply a place to let your hair down.
Quinary, Hong Kong Island
Featured on the list of the world’s 50 best bars, Quinary uses molecular mixology to pour some of the most creative cocktails on the island. For example, bartenders use a series of flasks, pipes and tubes to create their bloody mary, which mixes wasabi-infused vodka with a house-made bloody mary mix. This bar is no doubt one of the more unique experiences in Lan Kwai Fong.
