  1. “Drinks at Propaganda are expensive. There isn't much crowd even when I went on a Saturday night. The place looked old and the staff is rather unfriendly. Will not visit again.”

HAPPY HOUR: Buy One Get One Free! - ongoing promotion

Popular, stylish karaoke & dance bar in Kowloon that attracts bears and their friends.  We particularly like the comfortable seating, illuminated bar top and cute waiters in Boo Bar’s trademark orange overalls.  The bar features a state-of-the-art karaoke system which is put to very good use by talented customers.  A warm welcome is offered to all.

On the last Saturday of each month karaoke is replaced by a DJ for a dance party night.  A great place to hang out any night of the week but particularly busy on Friday and Saturday (standing room only!).  Happy hour between 7pm – 9pm.  MRT – Jordon (Exit C1)
