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.

Sevva

Sevva

Prince’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.

Drop

Drop

39-43 Hollywood Rd. | 852.2543.8856

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.

Kee Club

Kee Club

6/F 32 Wellington St. | 852.2810.9000

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.
