Travelers to Hong Kong may find it surprising that gay bars and nightclubs aren’t quite as popular as one would think, and the scene here is somewhat nascent in comparison to rival cities such as London and New York. But as the Hong Kong scene has grown, so has the number of gay bars and nightclubs.  See our picks of the best clubs below.

If you'll be traveling to other parts of Asia, Travel Gay Asia has many resources for gay travelers.

New Wally Matt Lounge

Address
152 Austin Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

The New Wally Matt Lounge gay bar in Hong Kong is like the "Cheers" crowd gone queer. Popular with a slightly older and slightly more sedate crowd, the Wally Matt is geared toward those who prefer a friendly pub to a jostling dance floor. This lounge is the legacy of Waltzing Matilda, one of the city’s oldest gay bars dating from the 1950s. 

Hours: Monday–Friday noon to 3 a.m. Saturday and Sunday 5 p.m.–3 a.m.
