30-32 D’Aguilar St., G/F California Tower, Hong Kong, , China

Set right in the heart of the legendary Lan Kwai Fong nightlife zone, this restaurant/bar/club clears its tables after dinner so people can shake a leg. It was one of the first nightspots to open in this area back in the late 1980’s—and though it has a new retro-chic décor (lots of brushed steel, mirrored glass, and angular banquettes), it has stuck with the same tried-and-true formula that’s kept it popular for so long: a mix of live bands and DJ-spun music; a wide selection of beer, wine, and shooters; and terrific hamburgers and fries.

 

Insider’s Tip: The area around California is club-hopping central; three other hot spots, Club 97, Lux, and La Dolce Vita, are practically next door.
