I love this place to death, but unfortunately, it had a fire in December. Make sure it is up and running before you head over to enjoy the scorpion bowls.

The Hong Kong is great place to go with a big group of friends. You can sing karaoke, dance upstairs, and share scorpion bowls. What a great combination!

I heard about Hong Kong from some of my friends, who bragged about the scorpion bowls and dance floor, so I decided to check it out last weekend. They charged $5 at the door, plus another $5 to get upstairs to the "dance floor" which turned out to be a huge disappointment. Upon entering the second floor, I immediately regretted paying $5 to get up there; most people weren't even dancing, the dance space was kinda small and there were hardly any guys on the floor. The DJ was HORRIBLE, spinning mediocre hip hop with only the occasional new/hit song mixed in...he also changed songs way too quickly. Unfriendly staff and creepers stood on the edge of the dancefloor, audibly criticizing people's dance moves and just generally making fun of their customers (which was quite a diverse crowd of people).

However, the downstairs bar scene, though a bit dumpy, had a fun, upbeat, friendly atmosphere. Girls were singing karaoke to the dixi chicks and bon jovi, and the crowd and staff we much friendlier than the upstairs group. The $1 meat on a stick wasn't bad, considering the price, and the scorpion bowls were very enjoyable. I think I would go here again to start off a night of club hopping, but I plan to skip the dance scene at this place and hangout downstairs instead, where everyone seemed more relaxed and friendly.

Pros: Pretty cheap

Cons: bad dance scene

You have to be from a trailer park in revere to like this place....

1) The staff and that troll asian owner/manager are disgusting.
2) they have 1 bathroom that smells like a sewer
3) they have a cover that is decent, but then charge you again to go upstairs.
4) after the troll asian four-eyed manaager charges you again to go upstairs, the fat "bouncer" upstairs tells you that you cant be up there (as if its like a VIP area) with a hood on your jacket. Keep in mind my friends hood wasnt on a sweatshiirt, it was a hooded sweater from Marc Jacobs.
5) If you want to go outside to smoke the white trash bouncers make you pounce through the trashy crowd to the little gay coat check guy and leave your ID and get a bracelet before you can go out 6) The manager/owner (ugly Asian lady) must be on something to act like she does. People should go just to see how she acts and handles things. Its HYSTERICAL!. She needs to go back to her own country.

The bartenders on the first floor were super nice and good! Ladies, go somewhere else!!!
THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE. DO NOT GO HERE!!!!

Hey If you like being assaulted by the regulars at this bar then go ahead.
Kareoke is a grand time, the scorpion bowls are good too but it doesn't mean anything if the patrons are going to treat you like garbage on the street and the staff doesn't give you the time of day.

Pros: good music

Cons: no one give acrap if you get treated unfairly

It can be fun...if you get there early and stay for only one drink. Otherwise, have fun waiting FOREVER in line, being charged TWICE (once to get in, another to go upstairs!), and trying to wear a jacket inside during winter months (they charge you if your jacket has a hood!). Once this place gets going (around 10 PM) there is no room to move around. Its an extremely small bar, which I'm surprise nobody has mentioned. Also, even though there is 2 floors, there is only one very small, very dirty bathroom n the first floor that you also wait forever to get in to. The "diverse" crowd here isn't unlike any other bar in Fanueil Hall. Mostly just obnoxious college students drinking too much. I'm not sure why everybody keeps saying the scorpion bowls are "cheap". They're 15 bucks a piece and gone not son after you get them. I must say though, they make great drinks and play great music but if you want to save the 10 bucks to get in, the 15 bucks for the scorpion bowls, the money to charge your jacket , the rudest staff, or waiting in line for EVERYTHING, go to any other bar in Fanuiel Hall!!!

Pros: Good food Good music

Cons: Overcrowded Expensive for value Rude staff

.

Never used to charge a cover, now they charge one to get in and one to get upstairs. Its good music, but the seems like the same faces all the time, even though I only go every few months. Good for a first drink before going elsewhere.

Had a great time until I came home to find that they had charged me twice while there. The amount in question was a huge tab, and it took weeks to straigthen it out with my banlk. I don't think the staff is very trustworthy!!!

i was at the HK the day of this situation and your friend was rude and obnoxious towards the bartender and deserved to get thrown out... i saw this with my own eyes, and i saw you try and get in front of your friend when it was time for him to leave....im a doorman on landsdowne and if someone gets in my way when im trying to throw you out then you must also be part of the problem.

your wrong and if there is any place that serves dollar sticks of chicken, and cheap drinks then i would like to know.. bt u cant talk bad about this place because one bad experience.

I've been to the Hong Kong twice and I can't complain. The food is cheap, the mixed drinks are about a dollar or two less than other bars in the area and the beer is a good value too.

Another great thing about this place is that every time you spend $5 you get a coupon. The coupons can be redeemed for prizes like hats, t-shirts, mugs etc; It's like getting free stuff for getting buzzed.

Pros: cheap food, cheap beer, coupons

Cons: uncomfortable seats

.

Sure its crowded, and yes it is tough to move sometimes, but honestly, crowded bars come with the territory in Boston on a Friday or Saturday night. Show me bar that is not crowded during the weekend, and I will show you a place that noone cares about, and probably will not be in business for long.

The cover ($3 downstairs, higher than that upstairs), is worth it, and has been known to be waived when the lines outside get too long. The best suggestion to avoid waiting in long lines is to show up before 11PM.

Of Course the Scorpion Bowls are highly reccomended, good domestic beer selection as well. The Teriakey sticks can't be beat for value ($1 for Chicken 2$ for beef), as well as quality. Great Crab Rangoon as well. Tell 'em Matt sent you

Let me start by warning you that if you are a high class person, the Hong Kong, is NOT for you. My friends and I occasionally touch this place now and then for the delicious and enormous scorpian bowls that they boast, but really, don't bring your best Manolos anywhere near this joint!

I highly recommend this place if you are looking to cruise through the small spots all over Fanuel hall. Its a great starter place, and their scorpian bowls will leave you teetering on those 4 inch heels. You'll dance a bunch and will most likely get groped but some 21 year old, but for some reason, this place is always a good time.

Oh, and most nights, girls get in free!

***Tip: don't touch the teryaki that they'll try to sell you. Who knows how long its been sitting around. Yuck!***

PROS: Yummy scorpian bowls
CONS: Dirty!!!

You either love it or hate it. Those who claim to hate it still show up every week. Good music, good drinks, familiar faces, and who can resist the chicken teriyaki. I'm sold although last week they were charging $15 at the door which is too much for that spot! $10 I'll be there, $15 not worth it.

The Hong Kong is my favorite place, (upstairs of course) Downstairs is more of a college type atmosphere, no dance floor and filled with the J. Crew and Abercrombie types. Good if you enjoy listening to rock and bar anthems like "pour some sugar on me". Upstairs is where it happens, lots of dancing great music, great people and good dancers. Get a scorpian bowl followed by a teryaki stick and your night is complete. Great crowd upstairs with lots of diversity and great beats.

Pros: Inexpensive, good crowd, good dj

Cons: , closes at 2:00, Is in boston

.

Fun atmosphere!! The music hot but usually the men are cuties but it is a small spot and quickly gets crowded on Saturdays. Not a bad value to be able to wear jeans and a T-shirt and only pay $8. If you like to have fun that's the place to go.

This place is cool if you've never been to a boston bar before, or if you just turned 21. I've been going to bars and clubs across the country for a while and have never gotten such rude service before. Tough guy bouncers and rude barkeep treat you like an underage college punk.

the Hong Kong is the best place to cap off a night of drinking in Faneuil Hall. Make sure to hit some other bars before the Hong Kong...b/c once you get here you will be too drunk to go anywhere else. Make sure you have a few Scorpion Bowl races and you will be good to go.

If you've graduated recently from school, it's cool to hit up this spot. Otherwise, don't ever consider it.

Awful, unoriginal music upstairs. Basically Kiss 108 type stuff. Scorpion bowls are cool, especially to race if you have a big enough crowd. But the two times I've been, I couldn't wait to leave. It is off my list.

I've been to the spot three times so far, and can't wait to hit it up again. The music upstairs is hot. The crowd is hot, too. Lots of cute ladies, and most everyone has a good attitude. If you're looking for a laid-back place with cheap drinks, cute chicks, and a good atmosphere, this is the place for you. See ya there.

If you got to get drunk cheap, check this place out. Inexpensive beer, good selection, and scorpion bowls. $1 per stick teriakyi goes down really well after a long night of drinking. It's usually very crowded on the weekends and a kind of divey. The perfect place to start out bar hopping or clubbing, but not where you want to spend the whole night.

In Short
For sheer people-watching potential, few Boston nightspots are better. Downstairs, Abercrombie-clad students mingle with a distinctly local crowd. Upstairs, it's an urban dance scene, with a multiethnic crowd strutting…
