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
  • Wan Chai • 3 min walk
  • Admiralty • 10 min walk

Tiny bar, expensive prices, very loud music and you have to battle to get to the bar where the staff are disinterested and rude..unless you're a regular it seems. Most people are older, 50+ expats but there are much more spacious venues with better prices, music and friendly staff.

Small hidden Live Music Bar in Wan Chai District absolutely worth a visit (or two). Great fun with a lot of likeminded People. No doubt a must go and much better than most places in this area.

An old fashioned HK bar - its been there years, we believe.
But get there on the night with the right band and the music ids gtre4at, the atmosphere is good, beer is very good and its just a great place for a night out. Good service and good prices as well.

Wish had been in The Wanch all 4 nights stay in HK. It’s such a vibe - the place, the bands/performer & the people around. Everyone connects. On TOP of the great music, of course. I’m Glad that it’s on the quieter end of Wanchai. Next visit will be at The Wanch every night.

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!
