The Kowloon Hotel was one of the premier Chinese nightclubs in the 60s. For the younger set, tea dances were well attended. The Falcons used to play there too along with other famous bands of that time. Sometimes the place can be an “action place”, How many of you remembered the “incident” with a Korean Martial Arts Exponent?
The proprietor of The Kowloon Hotel was Foo Khoon Ming. It is now the Ritz Kowloon, under new ownership.
When the coffee-house craze that hit Ipoh during the 70s, there was this ‘Blackjack’ on the top floor of the hotel. It was popular with the old and young. It lasted till the 80s and eventually all coffee-houses folded up.
Dear CK Leong-Please share about the incident of the Korean. Thanks
