Neptune 2 disco is located Jaffe Road, Wan Chai, just a few yards from the intersection with Luard Road and is one of Wan Chai’s few clubs that is open almost till dawn. It is quite easy to find its neon sign above the door and a narrow staircase leads down into the underground premises. This spacious disco has a similar crowd to Fenwicks but the venue is slightly less claustrophopic due to the higher ceilings. There’s a square bar in the middle of the club, a private-ish seating enclave in the back, a stage for a live band and a large dance floor. The drinks are reasonably priced, the staff members are friendly, the band is a lot of fun, and the female tourists from different Asian countries are flirty.

But legendary that Neptune II has been shut down, it is said that because Liquor Licensing Board refusing to issue it a new licence. Staff at its sister bar – Neptune III said Neptune II was closed for renovation, but considering that it is the busiest time of the year for the city’s nightspots, this seemed unlikely. The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department later confirmed that Neptune II’s bar licence had not been renewed, but did not give a reason. The real reason for its closure is understood to be much less controversial, with an industry source revealing that its liquor licence was turned down because of overcrowding. But whether it is the reason or not, people do not know, just have a guess, but now, the bar is still called “the landmark of Wan Chai” and many Wan Chai regulars would agree.
