My girlfriend and I were greeted at the door by the suited, burly bouncer as we tried to walk inâ¦âIâm sorry sir but tonight is invitation onlyâ, as he blocked our path with a wave of his hand. âOh, good thing I have thisâ¦â I said as I pulled the orange invitation out of my pocket. âThank you sirâ, the bouncer offered as he opened the door with the lettered handles.
Jam-packed to the brim, we were confronted with a sea of Hong Kongâs elite, dressed to kill and drinks taboot. We squashed and wiggled our way inside as the band played everyoneâs favorite cover tunes. Straight to the barâ¦we found it easily enough. The booze was overflowing, bartenders pouring drinks like madmen scientists. âSorry were out of champagneâ, one bartender yelled over the music. We scored a couple of beers, grabbed a few cherry jello shots from a passing waiter and squeeze our way through to the last open spot available in the club. The band jammed away with furious energy on tunes like âBreak on Throughâ by the Doors, âBy the Wayâ by RHCP, and âEvery Breath You Takeâ by The Police. We danced and crowd watched, checking out a few of Canto-pop stars and some peculiarly dressed patrons like the afro-sporting 70âs guy dancing with all the hotties. All in all, a very hip experience with loads of club potential and a great addition to the Hong Kong party scene. I know weâll be back to see more bands and enjoy the plush party atmosphere that only The Edge can offer.
