    Especially going by the stand-out "bar" crowd seen on the pavement on the east side of lower D'Aguilar St. on w/e nights. The size was nearing that on LKF St proper above the bend.

    from today's Sunday Post


    Youngsters flock to 'Club Seven' for cheap night on the town in Lan Kwai Fong

    Tiffany Lam Oct 05, 2008


    It could be Hong Kong's least exclusive nightspot. But with drinks costing less than your average bottle of water, it is no surprise that financially challenged youngsters choose the 7-Eleven - or "Club Seven" - as their drinking establishment of choice in Lan Kwai Fong.

    The 7-Eleven on D'Aguilar Street was easily the most crowded venue in the district at midnight on a recent weekend, a Sunday Morning Post reporter observed.

    Judging from the number of revellers dropping in to buy beers and alcoholic drinks and the 100-strong crowd drinking outside, the store competes as a de facto bar.

    "I like to get pre-drinks at 7-Eleven before clubbing, so as to get a bit tipsy before going in," said party-goer Felix Lam Kai-lok. "It's more expensive in the club. [At 7-Eleven] I can possibly save more than 40 bucks per drink," the 20-year-old said. He added that the store was a good "hanging-out spot" to wait for friends before hitting the clubs.

    But bars close to the two Lan Kwai Fong 7-Elevens admitted to feeling the pinch. The manager of the Coconuts bar, Abdul Hanif, said the popularity of the convenience store had put a damper on his business. The opening of another 7-Eleven across the street three months ago made matters worse, he said.

    "Our customers buy less cigarettes and drinks from us," he complained, adding that more guests were not making their purchases at his bar. "Sometimes when they come in and out with a bottle of Heineken or Stella Artois, it's hard to tell whether they bought it here or there."
