Why Propaganda is special ?

Psychic Jack’s polka-dotted bronze door opens into what was formerly Works Bar (which, before that, used to be Propaganda). The low ceiling is an advantage to the space, working with the moody, dim lighting (designed by Hong Kong-based company Light Directions Ltd) to create an intimate atmosphere for the hushed venue. With the help of architectural firm Zanghellini & Holt, Psychic Jack’s owners have managed to keep their sophisticated space fun with various quirky details, ranging from the two pop art bunny figurines perched on the bar, to the back-lit tanks of translucent jellyfish fitted at the front of the room.

I am a gay man in my early 30s, and have been going to Propaganda (commonly referred to as "PP" by locals) every trip to Hong Kong since my late teen years (so just shy of 15 yrs). PP is the only consistent gay establishment in Hong Kong. There were other dance clubs/bars but they came and went. PP has been reliably the place to be if you want to dance the weekend away surrounded by men. Compare to other gay clubs around the globe, I would give it a 4/5, but compare to what else are there in Hong Kong, it is deserving of a 5/5. Despite its long history, unlike some cities in North America and Europe, the crowd continues to attract newer/younger customers. Overall the crowd is generally fairly decent looking, good mix of guys from their 20s to 40s, and both local Chinese and ex-pats. It has kept the interior décor fairly well maintained so while it is not uber-trendy (in fact the lounge feels a bit 90s-ish), it does feel like a decent, up-to standard, well run club. Yes, drinks are expensive, but that’s the nature of being essentially a gay monopoly. The crowd seems to arrive later and later over the years. The last time I went (in early summer 2014), the place was deserted as late as 1.30am, but by 3am it was so packed there was a long line up outside you can barely move on the dance floor. Nice thing is that you can get there as early as 10~11ish pm, pay your cover and get stamped, go partying/drinking elsewhere till later in the evening and zip by the lineup when you feel like hitting the dance floor. Tip: (in response to the complaint about $ below) The cover is cheaper earlier in the evening, and it tends to come with a drink ticket and a free cover for a specific night (or two) the following week (or sometime the following day). This is not particularly useful if you are in HK for a short stay, but it is what keeps the regulars coming for their "routine visits".
