I'm going to Hong Kong for Easter this year and I needed some packing advice. Do clubs in Hong Kong have a dress code, if any? What I mean by this is for, say, many clubs in London (and here I mean the drinking and dancing type) require 'proper' shoes/shirts. (Which isn't necessarily true for clubs in other cities in England.) The reason I need to know is because I usually travel only with cabin luggage, but if I need to carry additional clothes then I might have to go with a larger piece of luggage and have to check it in.
Quotes from these pages for a selection of clubs:
"Dress Code: No jeans or sneakers/trainers, must be very fashionable."
"Dress Code: No Jeans , shorts, or flip flops !!!!"
"Dress Code: Just don't look like a COPLETE MUPPET !!" (sic)
"Dress Code: Dress to kill, place is Ultra HIP !!!!!"
"Dress Code: Casual Chic, everyone's an expat or a chuppie (chinese yuppie) over here."
"Dress Code: Dress like a rich hobbit. The place here is small and the food/drinks come at a price."
"Dress Code: Trendy and stylish "
"Dress Code: I dont know that there is a dress code but we did have proper evening attire on and fit right in."
"Dress Code: Your with the movers and shakers of the Hong Kong world !!!!! Dress to Impress is the word !!!!!"
"Dress Code: Cool lounge wear - jeans are fine, flip flops are not noticeable but dress cool"
So it sounds like for a lot of them, smart-casual is the plan, and given there's some suggestion of style and smartening-up, personally I'd pack town shoes.
