Gay Hong Kong’s nightlife is mainly located in Hong Kong Island in Soho (South of Hollywood Road, HK Island) and LKF (Lan Kwai Fong, HK Island). Soho and LKF are separate areas but are within easy walking distance from each other, just a 10-minute walk between them.

Expect weekend crowds to spill outside and on the pavement. This is the place to go on a Friday and Saturday night while weeknights are much quieter. This can be said for most of Hong Kong’s nightlife.
