Lockhart road is often associated as being the seedy red light district of Hong Kong and on most nights it does lives up to that expectation.
This isn't meant to be a deterrent though, especially if you want the 'anything can happen' kind of night out in Hong Kong.
If you unsure about the Lockhart road discretions, there are some rules of thumb you can apply.
Proceed with caution before closed doors and, in most cases on Lockhart road, establishments with drawn curtain entrances.
If you are still unsure, we've listed a few 'safe zones' for those that are looking for more appropriate tales to tell their friends afterwards.
Beyond the seediness, some bars do have live bands and don't be so surprised if they are actually good.
What to expect on Lockhart Road
- Men so intoxicated they are literally falling over and face planting.
- One of the best times to visit the area is during the Hong Kong Sevens where it takes on the street party atmosphere.
- Groups of exotic women.
If you can't figure why you are so popular that night, you probably shouldn't be there in the first place but in either case you can politely let them know you already have company... or not.
Pro-tip: Live music is a little known fact about the Lockhart road establishments.
