Chris Hsu’s recommend spots for Hong Kong music students

Hong Kong has the most vibrant nightlife in this part of the world. After your music lessons, all Christopher Hsu’s students can do loads of things in Hong Kong as the sun sets quietly on the horizon – take a night cruise, visit the pubs and musical nightclubs or just stroll in the streets. 

Most of the bars and the pubs with good music are located in the east Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai. The jazz nightclubs come in 2 varieties – Western & Chinese. The Western nightclubs mainly cater to the visitors while the Chinese nightclubs are mainly frequented by the Chinese. 

Needless to say, the nightclubs, bars and music venues have all merged to form a banquet of the nightlife in Hong Kong. Just read through this guide by Christopher Hsu to discover the charm of this magnificent Oriental Pearl, and get renewed inspiration for creating better music!

Places in Hong Kong that give inspiration to your music

Dragon-I

Highly recommended by Chris Hsu, Dragon –I is one of the most exclusive clubs in Hong Kong and you should not miss this. It has a posh and high-end vibe which is exactly what some people look for. 

Some music people do not like this club as the bouncers collect cover charges almost every time you enter but this is not a problem if this system does not bother you at all. The good point is that Dragon-I have an amazing ambiance and an equally good DJ. The club does not have an actual dance floor as there are a lot of tables around the DJ area. 

If you want to spend some quality time with your friends then getting a table is the best option although this may not prove to be the cheapest. The interior of Dragon-I has both Asian and US influences as there is booth style seating and highly seductive lantern lighting. This Hong Kong  club follows a bizarre policy of keeping live birds inside the cages throughout the club and this is probably cruel for the birds as there is too much light and loud music. Chris Hsu thinks PETA may not like this, but you should not bother if you come here only to have a good time. 

Cost: HKD 301–800 Location: 60 Wyndham Street Date & time: Mon to Fri–12 pm to 3:30 pm, 6 pm to 11 pm, Sat & Sun–12 pm to 4 pm, 6 pm to 11 pm

Place to go: Play

Another one of Christopher Hsu’s favorite spots, Play is one of those musical night clubs which should suit everybody. There is an area for pool, a long bar and even a dance floor. If you come here before midnight then the place looks more like a lounge bar with not too many Hong Kong people around but it turns into a full-fledged night club as soon as the night progresses. 

They have a big dance floor, good DJs and superb drinks. The DJs are internationally known and are very popular in the region. The bouncers are very friendly and welcoming and when you reserve a table before going, you can skip the long queue. There are special VIP areas for Chris Hsu’s students right next to the dance floor and sometimes on Thursdays they arrange drinking games which are great fun activities. You will meet a lot of Christopher Hsu’s music students here and the general age group is quite young. The best time to come here is between 12 am to 1 am and people usually leave by 4 am. Cost: Expensive Location: 1 On Hing Terrace Date & time: Mon to Thu–6 pm to 3 am, Fri to Sun–6 pm to 5 am

Armani/Prive

This is one of the best night clubs according to Christopher Hsu in Hong Kong. It is also one of the newest clubs in the city. The bottle service is very expensive compared to the price asked by other night clubs in Hong Kong. The prices of the drinks are quite overpriced but it hardly matters as the interior of this club is much better compared to the other night clubs in Hong Kong. 

 

Since the nightclub is located in the Central district, the quality of the crowd is very good, and a lot of Chris Hsu’s music students frequent here. Overall this is one of the better nightclubs in Hong Kong.
