Like any big city, Hong Kong's hippest club is constantly changing. But here are some perrenial favorites:
Hottest crowd, Boujis: There's a definite emphasis on exclusivity at this outpost of London's celebrity den, but once inside, the crowd, the vibe, and the musica are all quite fun.
Hottest music, Volar: Technically a members-only club, Volar has a tough door. Inside, there's usually a top international DJ, and recently, the newly-renovated club hosted hip-hop icons Dr Dre and Kendrick Lamar. People flock to Volar not to see and be seen, but to dance.
Coolest vibe, Insenses: Ask a Hong Kong DJ what their favorite club is, and they'll likely name Insenses. This insider favorite distinguishes itself with wildly enthusiastc DJs and patrons alike, both there to get down. It's a place to come and feel like a local. The space is miniscule, but if you get too hot, there's a sizeable outdoor terrace where you can enjoy a cool drink.
Most clubs in Hong Kong are in Lan Kwai Fong, a thriving nightlife area in Central. If you’re all dressed up, you definitely have someplace to go.
Dragon I Since 2001, Dragon I has been the unofficial headquarters of Hong Kong’s beautiful people and a favorite with visiting celebs. The crowd is fine feathered, and so is the decor: Caged white birds are a design element here (in spite of Peta’s best efforts).
Bougis This recently opened outpost of the London original is members only, so you either need to join or know someone who knows someone who can put you on the list. It’s not huge, but that’s part of the draw, as is the serious music lineup.
Volar It’s all about the music at Volar, where partiers pack the dance floor to move to beats by internationally known DJs, and drink in a lounge decorated with carousel horses.
