Club 979 Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong Phone: +852 2816 1897
AboutOpened more than 25 years and still one of Lan Kwai Fong's most revered nightlife establishments, this club underwent a transformation some years back that changed it from a disco to a sophisticated lounge, in recognition that its customers had grown up and were more prone to predinner cocktails or late-night drinks rather than dancing. The small dance floor is still there, but gone is the foreboding entrance that once turned away any but the in crowd, and in its place is an open-fronted facade that welcomes a mixed clientele of gays and straights. Weekly events to watch out for are Salsa Wednesdays, Thursday Ladies' Night with drink specials, the Friday gay happy hour (6-10pm) complete with drag shows, and Sunday reggae night, which draws a huge crowd wishing to chill out before the workweek begins. In any event, this happening place is a must for any decent pub crawl through Lan Kwai Fong. It's open Monday through Thursday from 6pm to 2am (happy hour 6-9pm), Friday 6pm to 4am (happy hour 6-10pm), Saturday 8pm to 4am (happy hour 8-9pm), and Sunday 8pm to 3am (happy hour 8-9pm).
