Renowned London club introduces to Hong Kong nightlife its signature blend of exceptional service, drinks and entertainment
January 22nd, 2013
Launched in October 2012, Boujis Hong Kong is the first international offshoot of the hugely popular London based Boujis brand. Acclaimed over the past 10 years as the premier private members club for the elite partying set in London, Boujis brings to Hong Kong an exceptional experience of luxurious, sophisticated- and at times decadent- drinks, entertainment and late night partying. Occupying an intimately scaled space in the heart of the Central nightlife district, Boujis Hong Kong offers its members an exquisitely designed interior featuring two main sections- the bar adjacent to the entrance, and further inside, the lounge / club space. Boujis Hong Kong follows closely the successful formula of the London parent club- in particular the emphasis on an attentive-yet-informal, dedicated service ethos; an exceptional drinks offering of sublime signature and bespoke cocktails; and an eclectic, contemporary entertainment program.
With its convenient location a short walk from the commercial and financial centre of Hong Kong, members can enjoy after-work, or pre-dinner drinks from 6 pm on weeknights (Wednesday to Friday), or if a late night of partying is on the agenda, Boujis Hong Kong stays open very late- with resident and guest DJs directing the entertainment.
Unabashedly appealing to an elite clientele of both local residents and expats, membership at Boujis Hong Kong is by invitation only- prospective members must be nominated by two members and then approved by both a membership committee and the management. Individual and corporate memberships are available, and Boujis can also be hired by members as an exclusive venue for private or corporate events.
Boujis Hong Kong has a capacity limited to approximately 250 patrons, and maintains a strictly “members and guest only” entry policy. For international visitors to Hong Kong, special “weekend passes” are available for guests staying at a select few, high-end city hotels.

The interior design of Boujis Hong Kong exudes a refined luxury, with a deft combination of traditional British elements such as the rich mahogany panelling, unpolished hardwood flooring, and classic Chesterfield-style leather banquettes, overlaid with contemporary elements such as the stunning LED wall, cutting edge sound system, and the sleek bar with its fabulous back bar bottle display that incorporates a Union Jack into the lighting effect. Created by renowned London based interior designer Tim Mutton of Blacksheep, the Boujis Hong Kong interior features zones that accommodate a seamless change in ambience, from early evening cocktails in the laid back bar, transitioning later to an exuberant nightclub venue playing host to world class acts, international celebrities, and an elite local clientele.
Spectacular LED panels span the length of wall opposite the DJ booth- the feature element of the state of the art sound and lighting system.
