When one thinks of watering holes in Hong Kong, Lan Kwai Fong and Soho will naturally come to mind. Lan Kwai Fong is the world-renowned party district in Hong Kong whereas Soho is lined with high-end restaurants offering global cuisine to suit every taste bud.
Lan Kwai Fong and Soho is packed with stylish locals and discerning tourists looking for a place to kick back with a few drinks or munch on some pub grub, or dance the night away to the pulsating beats at the clubs. Lan Kwai Fong and Soho are basically the hip areas to see and to be seen.
LAN KWAI FONG
Lan Kwai Fong consists of a few streets in the Central area. This area boasts some 80 bars, restaurants and nightclubs. You will be spoilt for choice. One of our favourite choices for cocktails and Asian bites has to be Ce La Vi which is in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong at the top of California Tower. With established presence also in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, Ce La Vi is no stranger to the party scene. The view from 25 floors above ground is nothing short of spectacular.

Taking the Mid-levels escalator beyond IFC and you will be passing through Soho which is a more relaxed place to chill. If Chinese food is right up your alley you have to check out Ho Lee Fook which is a modern Chinese fine dining restaurant. Their must-have dishes are the roast wagyu short rib and roast goose. The tender meat will have you wanting for more. You have to try it to believe it.
