The Aftermath is not just a bar but rather a community for artists to explore their craft. It showcases a curated live music programme of independent local bands with the occasional night of comedy and cabaret thrown in. Paired with draft beers – including a constant lineup of artisanal craft beers – The Aftermath is a perfect place for those looking for a chilled night out with friends.
After a few long months, live music is back! With the newest regulations on social distancing, music fans are now able to return to their favourite bars and enjoy live performances, drink in hand. Hong Kong’s music scene has grown steadily stronger over the years, and there’s never been a better time to support the local scene, helping them bounce back from a long, hard fought period of uncertainty.
While high rent and stringent regulations still make it difficult for the local indie circuit to be as big as, say, New York or London, there is a number of live music venues that are giving a voice to the city’s finest performers. Whether it’s a classy cocktail bar like Foxglove that touts world-class jazz, a casual live house like Lost Stars that champions up-and-coming indie acts, or even boisterous bars like The Wanch and Ned Kelly’s that do classic rock and cheap beers, here are some of the best spots in town to catch a great live music show.
