Electric Pawn Shop


Electric Pawn Shop

A hedonist, exotic, dystopian counterculture Asian bar & restaurant inspired by 70s Chinatown of New York. As to be expected from a secret bar, the entrance isn’t easy to find. Head behind the entryway to Sky5 Lounge by the main road where the neon green glow of its sign written in Hong Kong Mandarin dialect will lead the way – but once you’re inside, it will be worth the search. Expect Asian fusion fare, innovative mixed drinks and a roster of some of the best DJs in the biz.
