Late-night revellers will be pleased to know that the government is allowing karaoke loungesnightclubs, and party rooms to reopen from Friday as the city relaxes more of its social distancing measures. Following the reopening of bars and cinemas in early May, these entertainment venues will be allowed to operate at half their capacity, seating no more than four people per table in nightclubs while karaoke lounges and party venues are only allowed a maximum of eight people in a room. Dance floors will remain off-limits and live performances prohibited. Guests and staff are advised to wear a mask at all times, while measures like temperature checks and the provision of hand sanitiser will be part of the required regulations.  

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) also announced the reopening of their performance venues and music centres on June 1. Also, limited transit services are scheduled to return to Hong Kong airport starting June 1 after the suspension of operations back in late March.
