Where to Go and What to Do at Night in Hong Kong

Hong Kong nightlife scene is fun, friendly and incredibly diverse. The city is at its most spectacular when the sun goes down, when skyscrapers begin to illuminate the harbour, while pubs and nightclubs draw in partygoers with lively music.

The vast majority of bars, clubs and restaurants are located around Central, but you should also make your way up to one of Kowloon’s swanky rooftop bars. This list of the best nightlife experiences in Hong Kong range from family-friendly after-dark activities to a full overview of the city’s best places to party.
