The area
Neighborhood: Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
How to get there
  • Central • 5 min walk
  • Hong Kong • 7 min walk

The whole area has been priced out of average person's reach. Eateries, bars, everything charges exorbitant prices. New areas around Kowloon (Jordan Ferry) much nicer and budgeted for ordinary people like us.

What a train wreck LKF has become. The Saturday we visited it was reasonably busy. A young to underage young crowd, which is OK. The thing that annoys me most about this bar area is the bars are all dirty, the drink way overpriced and the scene decidedly grubby. There’s much better ways to do social drinking areas than this cess pit style. The smaller street approaches in Soho and SYP are good examples.

LKF bars. You need to do a radical rethink of what will keep people coming back and healthy and safe. With good value and fun times. At the moment, it’s awful.

Like 10 bars one infront of the other one, sometimes you can listen the music from both, but the place is so much fun, a lot of people, mostly tourists and a lot of places to chose

LKF or lan kwai fong is a tourists' delight when it comes to night clubs and pubbing and especially if you love Live music... in LKF there is no dearth of places with live music - the choices are endless!! so i headed out to insomnia. brilliant service. local bands belting out hit after hit, and a tad expensive, but great smoky ambience. was there for almost 6 hours and then tottered out after consumption of some serious amounts of liqour. the crowd was a mix of local chinese youngsters and a lot of expats. great place to walk into on your trip to LKF. the place opens at 6pm. but the action starts only at around 8pm or later. the nite i was there there was no space to move!!! always a good sign...
the other place which is a cracker of a joint is Dusk till dawn!!! Expect the place to be packed like a can of sardines... once you are in - you can't get out kind of place... nor would you want to leave... because you will be surrounded by all happy people!!

Took 6 overseas guests there midweek after dinner to enjoy a drink and a chat. On entering the main street we were hounded by hustlers surrounding us, and trying to get us into their bar. Every bar was the same. All now have aggressive doormen (obviously on commission) to try to get you inside. We had planned to spend an hour or two, and perhaps a couple of thousand dollars. No wonder every bar was empty! We left. And went up to Wyndham Street, and had a great night. Very disappointing unless perhaps you are 18 and want street beers from 7-11.

I was very surprised at the nightlife I witnessed while vacationing in September/October 2004. I was clearly looking to mingle with locals at these bars/pubs and I guess I was introduced to the "dark side" of some of Lan Kwai Fong's bar's.

Some not all of the bar's(female) patrons are involved in the sex trade. Young and old men alike will soon find that some(female)patrons in these bars are soliciting for sex. My personal experience included being solicited for sex and being offered to spend the night with these woman for compensation. My completely candid observation is that this occurs much more than it does not occur. I'm quite sure these bars and pubs who I do not want to mention by name will hopefully not allow these woman into their clubs in the future.

I strongly feel these clubs/bars do not promote the activity nevertheless, it occurs much more frequently and on a regular basis than they would want to admit.

If you like 2 star food at 5 star prices, LKF is your place. It's a tourist trap. Owners pay very little attention to the culinary experience as the cash cow is the alcohol business.

The crowd has turned into a popular drug and prostitution gathering where the tourists are at risk. The downfall of LKF is the selling of alcohol at 7-11. In the past the the prices of LKF, kept out the vagrants but now, anyone can say they were at LKF.

We went to Lan Kwai Fong for some drinks and were surprised there were so many pubs and shops around the place. The place is filled with a lot of westerners. Its like the east meet west.

My wife and I had both day time and night time experiences in LKF and SoHo. Both districts were our retreat when we were feeling a wee bit overwhelmed by culture shock. It was nice to go to LKF for familiar food and drink to close the day after experiencing more Chinese/local culture during the day.

Day time - we stopped for lunch one day. Both of us had salads. Great salads (very good to eat greens !! after local HK food which is generally very starch based) but overpriced by US standards.

Night time -
Dinner - Cafe Siam at Lyndhurst terrace is a MUST VISIT. We ate there two nights in a row. Fresh fresh food (Thai/Chinese mix) and healthy (greens, fish, chicken...). Great prices, very home cooked taste, great mix of Chinese and non Chinese patrons, excellent service.
Cosa Nostra - on Cain Road. Cosy little Italian trattoria. Downhome, home cooked Italian meals. Good portion sized, authentic atmosphere.

Bars
Fong's : indifferent to rude service. OK food and drinks (comparable to an American mall bar/restaurant). More locals than at the other bars. Lost : gangster rap (cool place ! our favourite. A little weird to see prim and proper Chinese people listening to ) LUX : lots of suits (very strong vodka drinks..lotsa lotsa alcohol !!!)

Great Happy Hour prices at all places.

California Fitness
Cool workout place (interesting to see local Chinese work out.)

Despite above - LFK and SOHO are definitely expat territory. Even among the suits seen at the bars I did not see many local Chinese business people (did see mainland Chinese businessman mingling with non Chinese expats).
