Late Night Drinking
May 11, 2018
While many clubs in Hong Kong come and go in a hurry, VOLAR has been reigning as the place to go for the city’s danceclub elite since 2004. The hidden basement venue is home to a sound system like no other; a mesmerizing layout featuring two seductive rooms, and a diverse list of sounds – hip-hop, dubstep, mashup, electronic, and everything in between. VOLAR has also garnered a reputation as quite the place to see and be seen, with common sightings of film stars, professional athletes, and socialites enjoying the sounds of the VOLAR’s deejays, who themselves are often of the world famous variety.
The two rooms at the focus of the fun at VOLAR are The Crystal Room and The Nest. The Crystal Room is home to angled wall panels and strategically placed sleek furniture pieces that help reduce echo and reverb (they take their sounds seriously at VOLAR) while providing a stylish atmosphere. The deejay booth is located right in the middle of the room, in an effort to let dancers interact with the deejay in a fun way. The Nest beckons with an interactive LED lighting system and mirrors that make you feel like you’re truly inside the music. The bar does its part to keep up with fast-paced service and signature cocktails like the fruit-forward Violator and the Volcanic Eruption, which blends absinthe, lime, grapefruit, and red pepper, but there’s no question the sound and lights are the stars of the show.
