Lan Kwai Fong Halloween Street Party

Halloween may not be part of the Chinese culture, but on October 31st you can bet that there’s one place that’s having the biggest, wildest costume parties this side of the globe—Lan Kwai Fong.

Central’s notorious bar district, Lan Kwai Fong, is known for its over-the-top, outlandish, and often ridiculous parties, and Halloween night is no exception.

You can expect lots of traffic—both on the roads and the sidewalks—as people in crazy costumes try their best to filter into Lan Kwai Fong’s narrow winding alleys.

The bars and restaurants that line the street will go all out with spooky theme parties, and offer drink and food specials to lure people in. The bigger nightclubs, such as Volar, Dragon-i, and Rula Bula will have huge all-night events—tickets or entrance fee required—typically with famous DJs, open bar, and prizes for best costume, of course.

But if you’re on a tight budget, you can do like a true cheapo and buy drinks from the 7-11 in Lan Kwai Fong, hang out in the street, and enjoy the crazy vibe. Either way, whether inside the big clubs with the beautiful people or outside on the sidewalks with a can in hand, you’ll always have fun in Lan Kwai Fong.

Need a costume for the big night? You’re in luck, because there’s a tiny street in Central positively overflowing with nothing but costume shops. Pottinger Street has everything you need for costume parties, whether it’s Halloween or the Rugby Sevens (they do like a good party in Hong Kong, after all). Just off of Queen’s Road Central, this picturesque and historical street still has old stone slab steps, so take a stroll up the steep street and enjoy a unique shopping experience.

In 2019 Halloween falls on a Thursday, and while there will be parties on the night of the 31st, there will also be many events the weekend before, likely starting on Friday 25th. Check out the official Lan Kwai Fong website website to find out what’s happening closer for Halloween.
