The Bottoms Up Club was a strip club/girlie bar in Hong Kong. The bar became notorious for its appearance in the 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun. The interior of the club evoked the interior of the club as seen in the film.

At the time of the film, the club was located in Tsim Sha Tsui, on the Kowloon side of Victoria Harbour. This gave rise to a movie blooper when Bond, played by Roger Moore, is picked up outside the club by British agents posing as police, and is told he is being taken to a police station on the Kowloon side (of Hong Kong Harbour), when he is in fact already there.

History

The Club opened at 14 Hankow Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, in March or May 1971. One of its early managers was Pat Sephton, a former Windmill model. A 1994 court ruling requested it to remove its naked-buttocks neon sign, and to have its naked dancers wear bras or negliges. The Tsim Sha Tsui location closed on April 2004. Rising rents were cited as possible reasons for the closure. The Club re-opened at the first floor of David House, 37-39 Lockhart Road in Wan Chai in 2004, this time mainly as a sports bar, with one of the original bars being recreated in a back room.

In July 2009 the club closed down.
