GP’s Hong Kong Guide
I spent just a few days in Hong Kong in October while on set for a film. The city is frenetic and crazy but has an incredible energy. It’s a magical place and I hope to visit again sometime soon. In the meantime, here’s my list of great spots for a whirlwind visit.
- We arrived on National Day and there were some spectacular fireworks.
- A boat ride is a wonderful way to see Hong Kong and get
away from the city—it’s so busy it almost vibrates. I was
lucky to catch a ride on a friend’s boat.
- Red Lanterns in
a street-side marketplace.
- Hong Kong hosts a pretty major lightshow on the buildings facing the harbor every single night.

SevvaPrince’s Building, 25th Floor, 10 Chater Rd. | 852.2537.1388
After going to the China Club, I got after dinner drinks at the Terrace at Sevva with my friend Ellana. It has a great view, and it’s the perfect place to have a drink in Hong Kong’s balmy weather.

I ended up at this teeny club late one night and had a great time. The club has a great vibe, a long and fun list of cocktails, and the dance floor is always packed.

The Kee Club is another worthwhile members club to visit. Try to go with a friend who is a member, or twist a concierge’s arm. The club is like an elegant old house with a lounge, game room, library, dining room, and salon. The night I went, I had a great time dancing in their club.
