It's a miracle this Lan Kwai Fong nightlife establishment is still with us, seeing as how it's now older than many of its patrons. Opened in 1982 (its name is a cheeky reference to what back then seemed like a distant 1997 handover of sovereignty), this club offers a variety of weekly events that bring in a diverse crowd, including salsa on Wednesdays, Ladies' Night on Thursdays, Gay Happy Hour (6–10pm) on Friday, and Reggae Night on Sundays for those who want to chill out before the work week. There are daily happy hours that differ every day, but otherwise a cocktail here costs HK$75. It's a small, unpretentious place compared to newer clubs, with a central bar taking up much of the space and a dance floor at the far end. And even though it was the first club back in the day to restrict customers based on how they measured up, it's now egalitarian, giving it a much more welcoming vibe.
