    The best bars in Hong Kong’s Lan Kwai Fong district are some of the best in Asia. Night owls will find a plethora of locations that cater to all, from down and dirty pubs to clubs with headline DJs from around the world. This is Hong Kong's party central. 

    The five bars we have profiled are down-to-earth locations; none of the below require a dress code and can be considered pubs rather than bars. Nevertheless, during Lan Kwai Fong’s peak weekend periods you can expect them to packed.

    You can enjoy these five as a pub crawl, in the order they are listed if you so wish, as all are less than one minute from each other. To make things even easier, from each bars exit you will be able to see the next pub. Enjoy Lan Kwai Fong's best bars.

    Stormies

    Best For – Enjoying Lan Kwai Fong Street Party

    Stormies provides the anchor of Lan Kwai Fong. Straddling the corner of the area's main streets, it’s from here that  revelers spill out of the streets and at weekends you can expect to see them dancing away on the tarmac while hits from the 80’s and 90’s are pumped out of the sound system. The inside is a mish-mash of nautical themes, although it’s so busy at weekends you will likely never see the decor. Upstairs, Stormies offers a surprisingly good restaurant serving up freshly caught creatures from the deep. Head here during a typhoon warning for drink deals. 

    Address: G/F & 1/F, 46-50 D'Aguilar Street,

    The Keg

    Best For – Laid-back Atmosphere

    A tiny bar that spills out onto the street, the Keg is the least pretentious of all Lan Kwai Fongs bars. Styled like a half barrel, the keg has a good selection of beers and friendly locals. The bar is owned by a Canadian consortioum and is the best place in town to watch NHL games, with playoff time turning into mayhem. They also offer something called pressure hour, where you can keep drinking for half price as long as you stay out of the restroom. Try it at your peril

    Hong Kong Brewhouse

    Best For – Selection of beer

    The Hong Kong Brewhouse is home to Hong Kong’s best selection of beers, including the whole arsenal from their own microbrewery. A simple interior and peanut shells on the floor make it the ideal place to relax and try some fantastic ales. They also have a patio outside to take advantage of the warm weather and serve American food.

    Address:
    LG/F, Lan Kwai Fong Tower
    33 Wyndham Street
    Central, Hong Kong

    Dublin Jacks

    Best For – Friendly Atmosphere

    Sleek Irish Bar, thankfully bereft of shamrocks and dancing leprechauns, but blessed with a wonderfully friendly atmosphere and a landlord who knows his clients by name. An extra attraction is ‘The Deck’ area, a spacey chill-out area at the back of the pub that overlooks Lan Kwai Fong below. Dublin Jacks also serves Irish pub style food and uniquely screens all major sporting events all seated, meaning your view of the big game won’t be obstructed.

    Address:
    1/F, 17 Lan Kwai Fong
    Central, Hong Kong

    Bulldogs Bar and Grill

    Best For – Drunken Antics

    A traditional British/Australian pub, Bulldogs could have been lifted straight from London or Sydney, and as such attracts hordes of men looking for a slice of home and beer by the bucketful. A cavernous interior holds crowds looking for a one-way ticket to drunkenness. Bulldogs boast a wide selection of European and Australian lagers and also screen major sporting events, including Aussie sports. Their selection of British and Australian pub food is some of the best in the city and well-worth trying.

    Address:
    G/F., 17 Lan Kwai Fong
    Central, Hong Kong
