One of the highlights of my recent Hong Kong trip was the Saturday night clubbing at Lan Kwai Fong. Though it has been a couple of weeks already, I admit that I totally enjoyed that night in that part of Hong Kong in which it would be a sin not to write about it.
Lan Kwai Fong is Hong Kong’s most popular nightlife entertainment district. People from all walks of life enjoy a drink with friends and even strangers both local and foreign. It’s one cool jam-packed party place!
You can never get hungry in this dynamic district. The diversity of cuisines has equated into dozens of food establishments in the area from make shift food stalls to sophisticated dining joints. We actually just had hotdog sandwich right on the street for dinner. Thanks to the heavy pouring of rain that we need to get cover because we accidentally intrude an overcrowded bar called Insomnia where a live high-spirited Filipino band plays. Inside Insomnia we did nothing but have fun!
We couldn’t get over Lan Kwai Fong we actually came back the following day and broke-in at Balalaika. With the huge bust of Lenin at the entrance door, this Russian bar is still closed when we invaded. Thanks to the nonchalant and friendly bartender who is still doing a pre-operating stuff inside the establishment for he let us in and even allowed us to wear fake fur coats and enter the coldest place in Hong Kong, the negative 20 degrees Siberian Vodka Room. It’s so bitterly cold I thought my fingers have fallen off.
Lan Kwai Fong’s buzz is so contagious that is why when I will get the chance to visit Hong Kong again, clubbing at Lan Kwai Fong will definitely be part of it!
Nag-endyoy talaga ako dun! Ang tsalap tsalap…
