GENERAL INQUIRIES

What is the Hong Kong Pub Crawl? 
Hong Kong Pub Crawl is a nightlife events provider. Our events are synonymous with fun, off-the-beaten track venues, excellent drink deals, and meeting folks from all over the world. We are most well-known for our signature Pub Crawl in Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong’s famous (infamous?) bar district. We started the LKF crawl in 2010, and have run it every Thursday since. In 2016, we also started a crawl in collaboration with the Hong Kong Jockey Club on Wednesdays, where we showcase the iconic horse races in Happy Valley, followed by a pub crawl in the Wan Chai district.
 

When do you offer crawls? 
We currently have two crawls on offer. Our signature LKF Pub Crawl runs every Thursday, starting at 9pm. Our Horse Races Crawl runs on Wednesdays, but only when the HKJC organizes horse races at the Happy Valley. Check in here for our event calendar. We also organize private crawls for large groups. Find out more here.

 

Do you offer discounts?
Check in on our website every now and then and and follow our social media (facebook and instagram) to be the first to know about discounts, special deals (think: events with free flow alcohol and t-shirt giveaways on special occasions)!

Can I check any reviews or pictures?

Check out some reviews here, or the albums from some of our past events here.

Can I get a refund?

We have a strict no refund policy due to third-party transaction complications. However, customers are more than welcome to transfer their voucher for use at a future crawl. If you would like to transfer your voucher, please contact us on Facebook.

How much does it cost to join?

Who is this event for?

What’s the itinerary for the night, and which bars do you go to? 

In general, we stay at each bar for just shy of 1 hour (allowing time to travel from bar to bar). Our policy is to NOT disclose the bars that we attend until the night of the crawl to encourage all guests to be on time and arrive before we head off to the second bar. Each bar is specially hand-picked by our team, is off-the-beaten-track, and we rotate between a large roster of bars each week.
 

Where do I meet for the crawls? 

Read all you need to know on starting locations and itineraries on our booking page for the Wednesday Horse Races Crawl.

What if I'm late and you guys have moved on to the next location?
Do try your best to be on time – the Happy Valley Racecourse is usually very busy and sometimes it might be hard to find latecomers! However, if you really can’t help yourself, shoot us a message on Facebook and we’ll either send you the location of our next bar or come pick you up by the general entrance of the racecourse (entrance G).

Can you take us to the first bar from my hostel? 

We arrange pick-ups from most of the leading hostels in Hong Kong to the first bars of our tours. Do ask your hostel if they have this service and if not they should get in touch with us on partnerships@hongkongpubcrawl.com.

Do I need to book online? 

Booking is not compulsory, and you’re welcome to show up and pay at our first bar. However, we encourage all guests to book online so we have a better indication of numbers. Plus, we have discount promo codes for various promotions we have running. Our tickets are also available for sale from most of the leading hostels in Hong Kong, so if you’re staying in a hostel, check in to see if you can just get tickets there if not they should get in touch with us on partnerships@hongkongpubcrawl.com.

How do I pay? 

Either pay online, or with cash on the night. If you’re reading this you may as well book online as the entire process will take you less than 5 minutes, and comes with an e-mail containing helpful info. Save your cash for the drinks!
 

Is there a dress code? 

Better be safe than sorry. For men, that means best to wear no open-toed shoes and long pants.   
 

Do I need to bring ID? 

Yes, absolutely.
 

How many people normally attend? 

Our crowd size varies each week. We usually have around 30 to 60 attendees on the Wednesday Horse Races Crawl.
 

What if it rains or there's a typhoon? 

We follow Hong Kong Jockey Club's weather policies.

Wasn’t there an 8pm roof-top start option for Thursdays? 

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Hong Kong Pub Crawl used to pick up guests at 8pm, on the IFC Rooftop, which was in time for the ICC Lightshows. We no longer do that as guests prefer staying later on at night so they can experience clubbing at the final nightclub, the highlight of our Thursday LKF Crawls. Guests are still welcome to meet there if they’re early to check out the light show but should make their own way to the first bar afterwards. The drinks there are expensive, you've been warned!
 

What if I’m late and you’ve moved on to the next bar? 

Do try your best to be on time – sometimes our bars are in really tucked away places and super hard to find. However, if you really can’t help yourself, shoot us a message on Facebook and we’ll either send you the location of our next bar or try our best to come pick you up.
 

Can you take us to the first bar from my hostel? 

We arrange pick-ups from most of the leading hostels in Hong Kong to the first bars of our crawls. Do ask your hostel if they have this service and if not they should get in touch with us on partnerships@hongkongpubcrawl.com.
 

Do I need to book? 

Booking is not compulsory, and you’re welcome to show up and pay at our first bar. However, we encourage all guests to book online so we have a better indication of numbers.

Either pay online, or with cash on the night. If you’re reading this you may as well book online as the entire process will take you less than 5 minutes, and comes with an e-mail containing helpful info. Save your cash for the drinks!
 

Is there a dress code? 

The final nightclub has a very strict dress code, and will not let you in if you do not follow it. No exceptions!

Men: No open-faced shoes (sandals, flip-flops, slippers) and sleeveless tops

Everyone: No flip flops and slippers

Do I need to bring ID? 

Yes, absolutely. The nightclub will not let you in without a form of ID. Any government issued ID, driving licenses, or passport will do.
 

How many people normally attend? 

Our crowd size varies each week, averaging 60 to 120 attendees most weeks on Thursdays. Our current record is 250 people and waiting to be beaten!
 

What if it rains? 
We run the Thursday crawl, rain, hail or shine.  

 

BUILD YOUR OWN CRAWL

 

My organization/company/sports team are in town, we have a large group/won’t be able to make the Wednesday or Thursday crawl – would you be able to organize something for us? 
Definitely! We offer private crawls for a very wide range of groups and events, from company icebreakers to stag nights, as well as bachelorette parties. Take the stress out of organizing by letting us do the job. After all, Hong Kong's nightlife is meant to be enjoyed. Read up about it here.
