Finding a decent venue has been a perennial problem for party-goers and organisers alike over the past decade. But options are expanding with developments at both ends of the size spectrum. Queues forming outside Home (2/F, 23 Hollywood Road, Central) at its opening last weekend suggested it was a welcome addition to the small club scene. More significantly, Hong Kong is soon to have its first permanent super-club. According to insiders, party organisers Pink are busy creating 'Asia's biggest and best club', in Chai Wan, following in the traditions of such British super-clubs as Cream and the Ministry of Sound. The site will have three rooms covering more than 20,000 square feet and opens later in the summer. Some of the biggest names in the DJ-world have already been lined up. Details will be revealed later. Already open, Home aims to fill a gap in the market by providing a club for different types of dance music, from hip-hop to funk. There's a complete ban on trance which some believes attracts large number of undesirables. 'We want to promote alternative dance music,' explains music director and promotions manager Calvin Ho, citing a hip-hop night in July with DJ Tommy, MC Yan from the LMF collective and breakdancers. It is in the heart of an area of small venues popular with clubbers - CE Top, the Yellow Frog, Phi-b and Amnesia - so its decision to target a niche market is a wise one. Baggy y-fronts hanging on a clothes line make for an unlikely club decor. But they probably won't be there long anyway. 'The women's undies have been nicked already,' commented Ho less than an hour after the official opening last Friday. Thankfully noone had been sick in the top-loading washing machine. Design is a key part of the Home concept, with a walkaround bar. Initially Home will open just at weekends throughout July. A guest list of 200 b-list and minor celebs hinted at the club's pretensions, although Ho says he wants the club to be 'stylish but not pretentious'. Standard drinks cost $55, which is about the norm. Cover charge is $120, including one drink. Ho, who has been running club nights with a twist at various venues for two to three years, adds: 'The whole thing is just trying to do something different for people.' Who says Hong Kong clubbers have been left out to dry?
