XXX Underground Club New Underground Club Causing a Storm in Sheung Wan

[08/07/11] 

XXX is a new underground nightclub-cum-art gallery that’s been making waves ever since it opened in Sheung Wan. It’s the opposite of what you’d expect from Hong Kong, a city saturated with black, shiny clubs filled with models whose heads touch the ceiling and men vying for their attention by comparing the sizes of their bottles.

What a relief for XXX. It’s a 1,600 square foot, bare concrete shell at the end of Wing Lok St. There are no gimmicks. There are simply a couple of projectors and a massive sound system – that’s it. It’s grimy, raw and atmospheric, and you wonder where your fellow clubbers come from. They don’t look like the normal Hong Kong crowd: there isn’t a suit or blackberry in sight, and you can forget about a VIP section.

XXX isn’t actually a club per se (in fact, it’s described as a gallery) so you have to check when they’re hosting nights and what’s on. You’ll feel like you’re in a basement in South London without the fear of becoming the latest statistic of knife crime. It's absolutely epic.

Our one concern is that it’ll get shut down for any number of reasons that Hong Kong authorities seem to throw at the vaguely alternative, so make sure you get down there quickly before it gets red taped. Or as we like to call it, red raped.

Keep it on the down low.
