If you’re a fan of Hong Kong’s nightlife, want to experience it without hurting your wallet and meet people from all over the world while doing so, look no further.

Founded in 2010 by nightlife enthusiasts, Hong Kong Pub Crawl has been redefining nightlife ever since. Hong Kong Pub Crawl’s tours are famous for their excellent drink deals, off-the-beaten-track venues, and being the best way to meet like-minded travelers from Hong Kong, India, and all around the world. A-Desiflava Magazinesat down with Steph, one of the managers of Hong Kong Pub Crawl, to pick her brain about Hong Kong Pub Crawl and how it caters to South Asians.

Q: How was the idea of Hong Kong Pub Crawl conceived?

A: Hong Kong Pub Crawl was actually founded in 2010 by a group of local nightlife enthusiasts who noticed a lack of budget-friendly nightlife options in Hong Kong, especially for tourists. When one thinks of Hong Kong nightlife, one thinks champagne, fancy nightclubs, and flashy glamor, but not everyone can or want to spend exorbitant amounts of money for the “Crazy Rich Asians” lifestyle. With over 4.7 million incoming tourists per year, we wanted to offer an option for locals and tourists alike to party together and explore the best of Hong Kong bars without paying an arm and a leg for entry fee and drinks.

Q: How exactly does Hong Kong Pub Crawl work?

A: Our crawls are $100 each, which includes our exclusive drink deals and free entry to the Happy Valley Racecourse or final nightclub, depending if you go on the Wednesday or Thursday crawl. Our drink deals at all bars are $40-for-2-beers, $30 signature cocktail, and a free shot at each bar.

Q: Where do the crawls take you?

A: Hong Kong Pub Crawl’s signature Lan Kwai Fong (LKF) Crawl in Central is on 9pm every Thursday and we go through Hong Kong’s SOHO and LKF bar districts. The Horse Races Crawl runs every race night from 7pm on Wednesdays at the Happy Valley Racecourse in partnership with the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), touring through the iconic horse races in Happy Valley followed by a pub crawl in the Wan Chai bar district.

We also have special events at least once every month, so be sure to check our calendar for events at https://hongkongpubcrawl.com/pages/crawl-calendar.

Q: What kind of bars does Hong Kong Pub Crawl visit?

A: One of the favorite bars among our South Asians customers is Culture Club. Owned by Aruna Rana, Culture Club Gallery is situated in the heart of the SOHO district and is a family-owner operated business. The spacious indoor and outdoor seating area makes it an ideal stop for our crawl. Across the past three years, Hong Kong Pub Crawl participants have received special deals and enjoyed many nights in the vibrant and relaxed atmosphere. Their finger food menu caters to the Asian palate and includes a good selection of Indian food. Culture Club Gallery is so named, as one of their primary objectives is to provide a low cost venue for cultural events in the city centre. In addition to the Hong Kong Pub Crawl, examples of events hosted include art exhibitions, Indian group meet-ups, Argentinean tango classes, vinyl sales, newly published authors reviews, literary and writers groups.

Q: How many South Asians frequent Hong Kong Pub Crawl?

A: Our customers are generally mostly tourists from all walks of life, and people from India is our fourth largest customer demographic, with over 800 visitors from India on our website in just the last 3 months. While it’s hard to give an exact number of customers from India, our crawls are very popular with Indian tourists and locals alike – just check our reviews! At Hong Kong Pub Crawl, we believe in the more the merrier, so join us for a night (or nights!) to remember.

Q: What’s your favorite or most memorable Hong Kong Pub Crawl event?

A: As we’re a weekly event, it’s hard to say which one’s my favorite! We do special events frequently and all of them are quite memorable. Every Halloween, for example, we try to out-do ourselves with crazy costume ideas, including one where we had everyone dress up in togas. Most recently, we launched HK’s first ever inter-hostel beer pong competition where we plotted four (very) competitive hostels against each for a table service giveaway prize at one of our nightclub-partner venues. If I had to single one event out, it would’ve been the Santa Crawl we organized in 2016 for Operation Santa Claus, a charitable initiative run jointly by the SCMP and RTHK.  That night, under the theme “Drink for A Cause”, we attracted large crowds wearing Santa Hats and pub crawl t-shirts, and donated all proceeds from that crawl to charity.  We were also able to get corporate sponsorship from Klook.com and the LKF Group, two large corporates in Hong Kong.  Nothing warms my heart more than being able to do our bit for charity whilst doing what we do best – pub crawling!
