Fang Fang

Try Fang Fang’s signature cocktail, the ‘Fangroni’

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.

Tazmania Ballroom

One of the city’s favourite spots for a party, this pool hall, lounge bar and nightclub has it all. Tazmania Ballroom’s space is vast by Hong Kong standards and boasts interactive pool tables, banquettes ready for table service, and a large terrace overlooking Lan Kwai Fong’s busy streets. Doors open at 5pm for great happy hour deals, while live DJs and potent drinks will keep you happy all night long.


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.
