Easily the best msuic on Gongti West. Better residents and more international artists, with two rooms of tunes. The key difference is this: the owners see music as more than simply a means to keep people shelling out for overpriced cocktails. Lantern bumps techno most nights, but has been adding more flavours all the time.

The crowd is infinitely less obnoxious than neighbouring clubs, but thinner – and we don’t mean in the waistline. You’ve certainly got room to move. On quiet nights, probably too much. Lantern is underground perfection – when they’re throwing an event.
