Most of the fun pubs in HK are cenred around a fairly short lane called Lankwai Fong - nearest MTR stop is Central, exit near Landmark/Pedder St, cross the road to D'Aguilar St and walk upwards - a little bit up the road is Lankwai Fong with a sleection of pubs and generally quite a bit of activity and actiom. NOt sure which ones have Halloween specials on.

Thanks. I am also thinking of going to Lan Kwai Fong but don't know which one to go. Do they have a cover charge when you enter? By the way, what time does the MTR stop servicing on Sunday nite?

MTR stops running at around 12:45am to 1am daily, depending on which train you're getting and where you're getting on.

They run overnight few days a year - like Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve & Mid-Autumn Festival. But Halloween isn't one of those occassion.

If by pubs - you mean English / Aussie style pubs, I've found "Ned Kelly's Last Stand" in Kowloon excellent. Beer, pub grub and live jazz music.

I find many of the bars in Lankwai Fong a posey for my tastes

The is a guide called asiabynight which has lists of places to go at night and also lists the special events so no doubt they will show the ones with special Holloween Parties, they also have an events diary so you can see what is going on for Halloween in Hong Kong and other Asian cities.

Dan Ryan's is fine but it is IMO a bit more food orientated.

Generally the holiday is celebrated in Saturday night in terms of bars, etc. Halloween is not otherwise a holiday (no trick or treating except by US kids in certain apt buildings) so Sunday night probably won?t be as big a celebration night in the bars as Saturday.

If you are going to Lan Kwai Fong, be prepared for huge and somewhat unruly groups of people. There is no cover charge anywhere that I am aware of except for girlie bars in Wan Chai which I assume would not interest you. The bars in Lan Kwai Fong are all pretty much in the same square block and are open to the street, so the party generally spills out into the streets. Most bars in the Lan Kwai Fong area will be doing something, the one which usually has a big do is Mad Dogs on D' Aguilar St.

The Hard Rock Cafe usually also puts on a big party. They are in Kowloon on Canton Street.

You may also want to try bars in the Soho area (one street up from Hollywood Road)
