In 1983, founder Allan Zeman opened California restaurant and bar in a humble Hong Kong neighbourhood of flower stalls and traditional wet markets, transforming it into the nightlight district of legend. A new kind of nightspot, it gave Central’s work-hard-play-hard crowd the kind of laid-back entertainment mecca the city was lacking – no ties required.
Four decades on, powered by that same maverick spirit of innovation, our business is award-winning and far-reaching. LKF Group properties extend from Mainland China to Thailand, and across categories – commercial, residential, hospitality, entertainment, and leisure. We continue to add business lines and services that help deliver on our vision: shaping spaces, enhancing lifestyles, and bringing people together.
“With lifestyle, you have to keep changing with the times.”
“Lan Kwai Fong was a very different place more than 30 years ago, it was a small alleyway dominated by flower shops and warehouses. But I saw a lot of beauty and potential in the area and decided to open California, a restaurant that turned into a nightclub in the evenings. And it all went from there.”
“To me, Lan Kwai Fong Group is a disruptive business. It has the last word on lifestyle trends in Hong Kong, because it’s a place where creativity takes centre stage, supported by collaborative efforts from a tremendously talented team. We’re also constantly seeking opportunities for growth and expansion.”
Our mission is bigger than bricks and mortar…
…or commercial and residential, food and beverage, lifestyle, and entertainment. We’re in the business of making people happy. To us, that means rethinking outdated boundaries between work and play, rest and exploration.
Every LKF Group project, from property to culture, cuisine, and commerce, aims to reflect the integrated and connected way we live now – and enhance it for a brighter future.
New brand visuals. Same pride in our past and drive for the future.
Notice a change in our logo? In September 2022 we retired our beloved street-sign icon for an updated design that reflects Lan Kwai Fong Group’s energy and focus on new terrain and bold moves.
While our roots stay planted in the heart of the Hong Kong ‘hood that began it all, we’re excited to bring our vision for contemporary living to communities across Hong Kong and throughout Asia. We’ll never stop striving to redefine the best in luxury lifestyles.
We’re proud to have seen our work recognised with numerous awards across the spectrum of services we offer: from design and development ventures, to social responsibility programs that reflect our commitment to our own people and to the wider community.
