    Night out in HK

    I'm planning on movig to HK in the new year, I am wondering how much a typical friday and/or saturday night out would cost (so I can figure out my budget).

    Friday night would typically consist of me n my partner eating out followed by drinks in a trendy bar somewhere. Satuday nights out we usually go out clubbing or watch a band play. How much should I set a side for these nights out?

    Really depends on where you go and how much u can drink. Budget $1000 for booze per night. Cocktails/Beers cost $50 upwards.

    quick eg in Wan Chai where i usually drink, a beer costs $59 and a Jack Daniels Coke costs me $72, i usually drink about 5 each, so on a typical Fri or Sat night as i only go out once a week, it cost me around 1K.

    If you go to LKF its even more expensive than Wan Chai.

    Weekend drinks way outside Happy Hrs - in LKF or Soho - can be $54 or so a bottled beer, maybe around the same for vodka'n'coke, etc. Depends where you like drinking... Cocktails -> 80s and 90s, somewhere.

    If you go to one with a live band at least you feel you are getting something for your money
