Top ways to experience nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
How to get there

Small venue with a surprisingly excellent sound system. Great bar staff. A couple of bands and acoustic sessions on most nights.

If you are into live music and especially fancy rock sound then The Wanch is a must on your list in Hong Kong.
There are only a few places left in the world like this. Great music, reasonable priced drinks and a lot of fun in the middle of Wan Chai. The evenings usually start at 6pm with some more mellow tunes and end well after midnight filled with various groups playing each for an hour or two. Don't miss it!

Live music venue, the night we visited there were 4 bands/artists on the bill, these were all very different and each had their own following. It is a small bar with a basic selection of tap beer. Quite a few bottled beers to choose from. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Highly recommend this place especially if you enjoy music.

The Wanch - Hong Kong's only rock 'n roll club! Small but cosy. Several live acts every night. When I am in Hong Kong I spend my evenings here. Conveniently located in the Wan Chai area it is a place free of etiqiette - come as you are and enjoy rock and blues music! John - the owner is legend - hear him with his own new band (Project X) or listen to young artists proving there is music beside the mainstream in Hong Kong.

We were quite a large group, all from the same Company. Had got together for a farewell & the last evening we were here with JP & Bridget. They made it totally memorable for us. Fantastic music & such wonderful hosts. Place was packed but we were given our tables & wine to drink. Some of us danced & then we had these photo shoots out on the street!!!
Such wonderful, warm people involved with the Wanch, thank you so much. We have come back with wonderful memories.

No doubts about it.
I've been to at least 5 other live music bars on hong kong island, including hard rock cafe.
Despite the very professional level of bands in other places they still don't beat the atmosphere in the wanch.
Beer prices are from 60hkd, not cheap, but you're not forced to. I just don't like to come to a no cover charge live show and order nothing, so I still order the beer. They also have their own brewed beer, but didn't try that.
On weekend the place was crowded and great bands with great set lists were playing and the whole place was very lively.
There are about 3 bands playing each evening, check their website. All bands play almost different stuff, unlike in other bars nearby. Also unlike the other bars nearby, this place is more cozy and I liked the audience much better in the wanch.
When I visited other live music bars around I always came back to the wanch. It's just the best over there!
