HONG KONG: Volar
Hong Kong's nightlife is always underrated, but with its never-ending stream of expats and rich locals looking for ways to spend their cash, it's consistently stylish, fun, and surprisingly genial. This 5,000-square-foot club opened in late 2004 and is still pulling in a good-looking mash-up of tourists and locals, all looking to link up. A giant LED system on one wall changes color to match the music pumping out of the sound system.
Velvet Rope Factor: It's officially members-only (yes, you can still feel London's pull here), but members may bring two guests on weekends and the door policy is looser weekdays. Ditch the denim and dress up.
In Good Company: Hong Kong fashionistas, style-obsessed expats from Bombay and Birmingham, DJs traveling the international circuit, and the occasional bold name: Sting, designer Jeremy Scott, and members of the Man U. soccer team.
Hey, Mr. DJ: DJs have included Derrick Carter, Miss Kittin, and Tommy Sunshine, who drive the crowd into a fist-pumping frenzy.
Sip on This: The VOLAR-tini—honey vodka, Chambord, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and fresh lemon juice.
When to Go: Check its website for new themed nights, including Brazilian Fever, which features live drummers and dancers.
