The Best Places to Dance Your Heart Out in Hong Kong

 2017-05-17    Tilda    Entertainment    Hong Kong    1734  

Pack your dancing shoes with you when you visit Hong Kong. In between the endless rounds of Dim Sum, sightseeing, and market trawling, you will find yourself drawn to the beats of the city, and there is no better way to express that than to dance your heart out. Whatever your style is, you will find a place where you can groove to the beat of your heart.


This is your place to get your dance shoes on in Lan Kwai Fong. With two rooms that play a mix of hip-hop, R&B, dubstep, electronic, and everything in between, Volar has been drawing the crowds, and international DJs have been swinging through its doors over the past decade. For good music,  great acoustics, sleek design and a crowd with even sleeker style, you won’t go wrong with one of the city’s favorite clubs. Plus, the fact that it’s in Lan Kwai Fong means stumbling home will be easy.

Address: Basement, 38-44 D'Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong

Hong Kong is one of those cities that just makes you want to get out there and be your most glamorous self and party till you drop. Play is the club where you can do just that.  With over 6,000 square feet of party space, Play features a Dom Perignon Champagne bar because nothing says a glamorous more than some bubbly on the dance floor. Be sure to come in your best party gear because the club is known for its uber stylish clientele that includes the occasional celebrity.

So you can’t be bothered with high-priced cocktails, overly fashionable people, and just don’t want to prep and marinade yourself before you have a great night out? XXXGallery will dispense your medicine for the night with great music and without the so-cool-it-hurts décor. Just to make a point that your flashy credit card won’t bring you much glory, it’s Bring Your Own Booze at XXXGallery so hit the supermarket before you hit the club. Also, check out the space for film screenings and art exhibitions.

Address: 89-91 Larch St, Tai Kok Tsui

Premium Sofa Club

Another BYOB to add to your list is the Premium Sofa Club. Think college students, the office crowd, and basically just about anyone who wants a good time with diverse music that ranges from underground house to disco and funk. The décor great and obviously has lots of sofas for when the music gets too much (really?) Situated in Sheng Wan, the quirky club is your answer to a great night out without the pretentiousness.

Address: 128 Bonham Strand, Sheung Wan


If what sways your hips are the tunes of Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, and Latin beats, Picada is the place you want to keep your eyes on as a different dance goes on each night. It’s definitely not just dance at Picada, as the restaurant and bar whips up Latin fusion food that takes you on a journey through Latin America. Good food, drinks, and dancing make for the perfect combination to let your hair loose.

Address: 2/F, LKF29, 29 Wyndham Street

Corazon Tango

Tangueros and Tangeuras out there, Corazon Tango is your Saturday night milonga to bookmark and dance till you’re past your bedtime. The Tango scene in Hong Kong is one of the best in Asia, so don’t miss your chance to work through as many cabaceos as you like.


Swing Dancing

Bring your snazziest jazziest outfit to Hong Kong, just in case you want to check out the Swing Dance scene here. Swing socials are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday by Hong Kong Swings, and there are also special events and workshops in addition to regular classes.


Moving Steps (5 Rhythms)

You don’t need alcohol to liberate yourself on the dance floor. Whether you’re a regular at Conscious Dance classes or have never even heard of it, take the plunge into Moving Steps and move without the need to impress with the latest dance moves. 5 Rhythms is a Conscious Dance practice that can be found in most major cities, and Hong Kong is no exception.


No Lights No Lycra Hong Kong

No teachers, no lights, no dance steps, and God forbid, no lycra!  Dancing in the dark with no flashing lights and no alcohol can be a highly liberating experience. This is where you can simply shake it out, do a 10-minute interpretive dance, pop, and lock, or whatever moves your body and your spirit. Take yourself to Sai Ying Pun Community Complex and leave your self-consciousness at home!
