The area
Neighbourhood: Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
How to get there

Great value and huge selection of scotch in Sheung Wan. Be careful, you could be there all day. Cheers!

Hong Kong nightlife doesn't really have that many places that play hip hop music. They also have great drinks and knowledgeable bartenders. The place is a little small but great for one on one dates. Can't wait for this bar to reopen again.

A group of us visited Whisky and Words and we ended up staying the entire evening. First reason is because they have one of the most extensive selection of whiskeys from all over the world, including some extremely rare bottles from Scotland, Japan and Taiwan. Second reason is the awesome staff, who are fun to hang with and have special talents such as magic and dancing. Lastly is the special atmosphere that naturally derives from people enjoying good music, company and drinks. Definitely worth a visit...it will be our favorite haunt from hereon!!

We visited one evening whilst waiting for a table at a nearby restaurant. The host was extremely knowledgeable and guided us thru the variety on offer, which was considerable. I opted for an old fashioned which came with whisky infused with coffee beans for 24 hours. A lovely twist! My wife opted for a gin based drink called the Detox. Also lovely. We will be definitely visiting again soon. The ambiance was calm and relaxing, the service was attentive yet unobtrusive.

A hidden gem for sure. One may mistake it as a casual shop and walk by it without even noticing it at night!

Ambience and service was on point. Introductory tasting was fantastic!

Saw an interesting door and just decides to walk through it. Well it took me some time to figure out the automatic sliding door, but inside really is a nice hidden gem. Cozy interior with friendly servers. Large selection of whiskies and flights for the the experiences and the novices. They also give you chocolates to go with the whiskies.

One of my current favorite bars, great music and friendly bartenders. Quite unusual for a whisky bar is the chic decor that makes the experience more lively and upbeat. Recently I discovered they have a number of Ben Nevis selections, an under-appreciated Highland distillery in my book. Cocktails are great too for my friends who prefer that. Definitely recommend.
