Midnight & Co. follows a trajectory set by well-loved bar Yumla (2003-2011) and the pioneering Phi-b (2000-2002), all of which resided at this very same address overlooking Lok Hing Lane Park. As the city grew around this humble basement, so did local club & DJ scene.
Midnight & Co. is a carefully considered and logical step forward for house & techno in Hong Kong. Prior to us (save for a few one-off events) no-one else has delivered underground club music to this level*: Take the best Funktion One rig available, enforce a strictly non-commercial music policy ALL the time, demand a high point of entry for every DJ, curate an open-minded and passionate crowd and put all that into a stripped back room ... let music do the rest. The results are often amazing and frequently mind-blowing.
In terms of design: Midnight & Co. is a deblierately sparse club, respectfully echoing the concrete techno bunkers of both Detroit and East Berlin, as well as pulling in a few small details from New York loft parties and their underground contemporaries dotted across Europe. No sensory overload, just people collectively enjoying music.
*(We take our sound very seriously. No delusions of grandeur, we are not The End nor Berghain but our intentions are just the same.)
Saturday: Primarily tech-house overseen by our resident BASIL TAM and a weekly rotation of guest DJs. Epic.
Friday: DAN F and guests roll from deep house to pre-weekend techno (depending on the crowd). Long, deep and funky.
Wednesdays: HEADCENTRIC "house music for music heads", the best late-night mid-week party in town featuring a rotating schedule of Hong Kong's foremost house music DJs.
Tuesdays: /itch/ - open-decks night, for your chance to get in behind our booth. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for a set.
