Some say that the recipe for the finest night in town is good jazz, good company, and a good drink or two. Couple that up with the fact that you’re miles away from home in an amazing city like Hong Kong, and you’ve just thrown a sprinkle of wanderlust into that beautiful jazzy cocktail. Luckily for jazz fans, there is no shortage of great live jazz music in the city.  Bookmark these places and you’re good to go.

Blue Bar

Blue Bar is located in the Four Seasons Hotel, and it’s certainly upscale. If you’re on a jazz date night, you won’t be disappointed with the bar’s classic and seasonal cocktails, as well as the beautiful interior of dark wood floors and calm, mysterious blue lighting. The Blue Bar happens to be one of Hong Kong’s best spots for good martini. As for the music?  Blue Bar serves up smooth jazz on Friday and Saturday evenings. Another plus would be the view of Victoria Harbour, which one can never tire of.

Address:  The Four Seasons Hotel, 8 Finance St, Central, Hong Kong

Peel Fresco

This SoHo Live Jazz venue has been a favorite since 2007 and features local as well as international jazz musicians. Catch local jazz drummer Nate Wong and his crew The Wong Way Down every Sunday night. Another local talent to watch is Eugene Pao, one of Hong Kong’s best jazz guitarists. Peel Fresco is open seven days a week, and the vibe is cozy and unpretentious. Space is really tight, so get there early if you can.

Studio Club

Studio Club is close to Lan Kwai Fong, so if you’re in need of more than just drinks and crowds, then this is the sophisticated antidote for you.  This relatively new club had just opened its doors in 2016 and is already quickly gaining a following amongst those who like their jazz clubs to be on the high-end side with champagne and great cocktails to sip on.  Studio Club’s live acts range from smooth and acid jazz to Latin and R&B and Soul.  Stay tuned to their Facebook page for upcoming live acts.

Bert’s is situated in the Foreign Correspondents’ Club, which may perhaps evoke memories of colonialism. The famous press club has been home to Western journalists reporting stories about Asia, including the Vietnam War and the more recent pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong in 2014. Bert’s, in the basement, features live jazz several nights a week and dubs itself as the true live jazz venue in Hong Kong. One of the steller draws of Bert’s is Allen Youngblood, the music director and one of the city’s best jazz talents who plays the piano and composes.

Love it or hate it, you have to admit that there’s a thrill in visiting a speakeasy bar hidden behind a shop front.' Behind the bespoke umbrella, the disguise is Foxglove, one of the city’s chic-est jazz lounges.  There’s live music every night from Tuesday and Saturday, with acts ranging from jazz to soul, Latin, and blues. The interior is quirky and cinematic, and the menu features French bistro food with innovative cocktails. Foxglove is definitely a good choice for a date, or simply a step back in a more whimsical time.

Visage One

Some people are just good at combining their passions ad making it work. Benky Chan is one of them, and Visage One is a hair salon by day and an intimate jazz club by night. Because, why not? There’s something magical about being in a tiny space where the boundaries between performer and audience are so blurred. It feels like some friends have rocked up to a house party to play spontaneously. Saturday night is when the magic happens, and you can expect a great vibe and a crowd of music lovers with pretense out the front door.

Address: 93 Hollywood Rd, Central, Hong Kong

Ned Kelly’s Last Stand

This is one of the oldest bars in Hong Kong and a long-time favorite for jazz lovers. The crowd is mainly made up of expatriates and some locals drawn to the laid-back Australian-pub vibe with hearty food and beer. It’s been around since the 1970s, which says something about its appeal in fiercely competitive Hong Kong.

Address: 11A Ashley Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
