Neon Nights: Late Night Hong Kong

Hong Kong is notorious for its nightlife, and while it may not be overflowing with 24-hour haunts, after-hours there are aplenty. From all-night shopping to karaoke and authentic Hong Kong eats, there?s always something for the night crawler to get into.

Hong Kong is notorious for its nightlife, and while it may not be overflowing with 24-hour haunts, after-hours there are aplenty. From all-night shopping to karaoke and authentic Hong Kong eats, there?s always something for the night crawler to get into.

 

For the true shopaholic, Hong Kong has APM, a 24-hour, 7-story mall in Kwun Tong (the MTR stops running around 1 a.m., so getting there by mass transit any time after is a challenge). APM houses a variety of well-known local and international stores that sell clothing, beauty products, books and electronics. There are also supermarkets, restaurants and a cinema. The perfect place to go when there are simply not enough hours in the day.

 

The Lan Kwai Fong and Soho areas are perfect for hours upon hours of barhopping; if you?re game, try Dragon-I, Volar, Halo, Drop, Gecko and Yumla, to start. Hookah lounges have enjoyed a recent surge in popularity here; Kasbah, Marouche and Sahara are top choices that also happen to serve delicious Middle Eastern meals. For karaoke, CEO at Causeway Bay is the place to go, especially as they?ve expanding their collection of both old and contemporary US and UK hits. Get ready to get your Gaga on.

 

Of the handful of places in Hong Kong that do stay open 24 hours a day, The Flying Pan, Caf? O (on weekends only) and Tsui Wah are your best bets. The Flying Pan is a cozy diner with an extensive menu of big, hearty Western-style breakfasts. Be warned: its convenient location makes it a go-to place for those with the drunken munchies. Caf? O offers a quieter, more comfortable experience and healthier cuisine. However, for a true local experience, Tsui Wah in Central is a must for its huge selection of reasonably priced local delights: wonton noodles, peanut butter and condensed milk toast and curries. Partygoers descend on all 3 floors around 4 or 5 in the morning.  Dig in.
