  • Sun, Tue-Sat 6:30pm-2am
Once you get to the walking street called Gin Ling Way, across Hill Street from the gallery-intensive Chung King Road, it's easy to find this red-hued drinking den. Just stroll under rows of illuminated lanterns and between the pagoda-shaped shops until you find the mass of people nestled outside smoking cigarettes. The bar at the back of the main room, adorned with Asian wood-carved shelves that display bottles and Buddhas, is usually standing room only, except for a long banquette that lines one wall and a couple chairs around the columns. Most people head to the opium-den lair upstairs, where beds and dark-wood alcoves filled with silk pillows and cushions offer pockets of privacy amid the party-atmosphere.
