What’s inside the disco ball?
Can it possibly be that time of year again? This Saturday is the sixth anniversary of Dragon-i! The club has evolved over the years to become Hong Kong’s quintessential nightspot. The six-year old venue hosts the biggest name international d.j.s and is a landmark destination for visiting celebrities.
Dragon-i anniversaries tend to be major affairs. Past headliners have included Little Louie Vega and Boy George. This year’s event is no exception.
Even the invitation to the anniversary is cool! Guests received a special miniature disco ball that opens up to reveal a necklace.[photopress:Dragon_i_DI_anniversary_6.jpg,full,pp_image]
Held on Saturday the 22nd, the musical entertainment for the night includes a performance by Jamiroquai fronted by the charismatic Jay Kay (who has always been popular in Hong Kong.) Also performing will be the accomplished d.j., Danny Rampling.

Invited guests only. Some tickets may be available at the door for $700 HKD. Call 3110-1222 for details.
the event was pretty disappointing. I can’t believe that DI can charge 500-700 HKD for tickets to ram that public space area, see SCMP from August.
I got to the anniversary event late, perhaps around 1am. It seemed like it was just starting to slow down after being totally jammed. When I arrived it was crowded, but still walkable. People seemed to be having a great time.
Dragon-i has done a great deal for Hong Kong by bringing numerous important d.j.s and music acts to town that would never have come to the city otherwise. Part of the reason this is possible is by selling drinks at tables.
Of all the untold stories in this great city, the South China Morning Post displayed a lack of creativity and courage by going undercover to focus on their use of outdoor space at the Centrium.
