About This Venue

From Wikipedia:

The Hong Kong Café was a Los Angeles music venue and part of the Los Angeles punk rock scene during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Located at 425 Gin Ling Way in the Chinatown district of Downtown Los Angeles, California and across the way from sometimes rival Esther Wong’s Madame Wong′s, the former Chinese restaurant was open to audiences of all ages. The Plugz and UXA played at the club's opening night on June 7, 1979, and numerous bands, including X, Catholic Discipline, The Bags, and The Alley Cats, performed there until its closing in January 1981.
