Hong Kong, China

The stretch of Lockhart Road from Fenwick Street to Fleming Road is the heart of the large but rather tired Wanchai girlie bar district. Seen-it-all mama-sans crouch in front, offering a line to entice pedestrians inside for a drink and entertainment that can quickly turn expensive (tabs of $200 for a couple of beers and some chat are not unheard of). The Panda Bar claims to be the only remaining club on Suzie Wong turf with a real topless license, evidence of which is provided the moment a man walks through the door (though quickly recalled if he seems uninterested in buying a round of drinks).

Traditionally, the Wanchai District (Suzie Wong territory) on Hong Kong Island was where sailors and horny businessmen head when they have just one thing on their minds. During the heady days of the Vietnam War and the GIs' famous R&R junkets, Hong Kong's girlie nightlife spread across the harbour to Tsimshatsui, Kowloon, the area along Nathan Road close to the Star Ferry. (Most of the R&R hotels were there so the extension was only natural.) Incidentally, Hong Kong is still a popular R&R centre for warships of many nations on patrol in the area.

In Wanchai, along the famed Lockhart Road and its side streets were dozens and dozens of girlie bars, hostess clubs and pubs, cheek-by-jowl, ranging from evil-smelling dives where anything goes (and where one ventures at one's own risk) to respectable establishments with live music and uptown prices. That's changed somewhat these days --- Wanchai has become respectable with an excellent selection of ethnic restaurants and up-market pubs. The number of earthy girlie bars and discos has decreased since Suzie Wong's heyday, making meeting your very own "Suzie" much less likely.
