Lan Kwai Fong
|Lan Kwai Fong Pictures|
Lan Kwai Fong is dominated by white collar workers and foreigners. The best time to view its energy is on Friday and Saturday nights, when it is most crowded with people looking for entertainment. Generally speaking, an evening here is divided into two parts: Happy Hour and Spree Hour. Happy Hour is for white collars from 17:00 to 21:00. To lure them, most bars offer promotions, such as buy one and get one free for drinks and half price for food. Spree Hour starts at 22:00 when many university students and foreigners join the group. Although it is a place mostly for white collars, it is not an expensive place to hang out. A glass of beer costs about HK$40 to HK$50, which is half price during Happy Hour. Fees are paid for the service, however, in most cases paid with service charges and tips.

When New Year's Eve, Christmas and other grand occasions come, there will be activities held along the streets, such as game stalls, competitions, and entertainment performances. People also flock to this street to count down to a special moment. During All Saints' Day, people in disguise themselves as ghosts, horses, angels, devils and mummies. Visitors should not miss it if they come during the festival.

La Doice Vita 97: The most popular bar. Offering Italian gourmet food during the day, it is a music bar at night with live shows each Thursday and Saturday.
The Whiskey Priest: An Ireland theme bar. It is a good place for live ball game broadcasts, serving authentic Irish dishes and black beer.
Each bottle of the beer cost HK$40 to HK$50 generally, but the cocktails favored by many women may range from HK$70 to HK$150. Some bars may charge an admission fee, changeable with the time period and ranging from HK$150 to HK$400, so ask about the charges before going into any one of the bars. Some bars also have Ladies' Night, when ladies get free admission or a free drink.

By MTR: Exit from D1 of Central, turn right to Pedder Street and walk until you reach Queen's Road Central, turn left when you get to D'Aguilar Street, walk straight along D'Aguilar Street and you will reach there. It takes 10 minutes or so to walk. (Note that the MTR generally runs to half past 12 at night and starts at half past 5 in the morning, so visitors have to take a taxi if they stay too late.)
