Hong Kong’s newest club opened with a splashy launch on December 20th, featuring not just the usual flowers and celebrities, but also a street lined with Ferraris!
Gala’s, opened by a well-known nightlife veteran, is a medium-sized club that has a booming sound system and a few special touches.
Located on Lyndhurst Terrace, the club is a short distance from Hong Kong’s nightlife epicenter, Lan Kwai Fong. To get to Gala’s entrance, you walk up a short flight of stairs just off the main street.
Walking inside, the space is furnished with a large number of tables and an elevated DJ booth with a modern lighting system. Gala’s also has a small raised stage, perfect for dancers, or an M.C. to hype up the crowd.
One important innovation found at Gala’s are tables that include a built-in sunken space to hold bottles. This is a smart addition that seemed to be working well on the opening night.
Towards the back of the dance floor, there’s a cage!

Other distinct features include a video screen housed in a huge set of lips.
Gala’s is definitely table-service oriented, however, there’s a large dance floor that takes up nearly a third of the space, making it comfortable to dance and check out DJs.
The club has already demonstrated its intention to feature foreign DJs. The opening night included a special DJ set by Jermaine Dupri, an accomplished American producer and the man behind a number of Pop hits.

In fact, during their opening week they hosted three DJs: Jermaine Dupri, Andy Moor, and DJ Bento – who all play different varieties of dance music.
The superior sound system at Gala’s is an improvement over most in Lan Kwai Fong and sets the club apart.
