The End of an Era: LKF’s Club 97 closes its doors for good this month

Through the 7-Elevenification of Lan Kwai Fong, the demolition (and subsequent resurrection) of California Tower, and the influx of American imports like Hooters and the Hard Rock Café, Club 97 has always been a point of constancy amid the perpetual change in and around D’Aguilar Street. Until now. 

After 34 years of operation, the LKF institution is closing its doors for the very last time on Sunday, Aug. 28.

We have so many questions, like: “Where are we going to get those weird little round Cosmopolitan balls on Ladies’ Night now?”, or “Where are we going to accidentally intrude on a surprisingly exuberant group of salsa dancers in the future?”.

But for now, we’ll settle for partying like it’s 1997 one last time.

Club 97’s former resident DJ, Teng Boon, will be spinning again, while other local names such as DJ Gruv, DJ Edwin and DJ Tat join him for three nights to remember (or forget, depending on your alcohol tolerance).

Just like its venue, Club 97’s final weekend programme is a classic – check it out below if you don’t believe us!
