Top ways to experience nearby attractions

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 unique cocktails, friendly manager
    As a bit of a home (but certified) mixologist myself, this bar was a real find. The manager, Deven, is both sociable and knowledgeable. As someone who travels the world to hit bars, the quality of the drinks here did not disappoint. It's not one of those bars which do the same-o range of drinks (although they can) but they have their own house cocktails which are more than deserving. They also do take outs of their cocktails so if you want to take home a 500ml bottle of a cocktail they can make it happen (I am making it so). Will certainly make another trip here the next time I hit HK.
    We appreciate the thorough and kind review. It was an absolute pleasure to have you and your compliments have been passed onto our manager, Deven. We do look forward to serving you again on your next visit to Hong Kong. Whisky & Words

    A place to enjoy whisky and cocktails
    I visited HK again this year since 2018, and I came back to Whisky & Words again. My friends and I enjoyed it very much the last time. It's definitely a nice place to catch up with old friends and enjoy a few glasses of good whisky, and I must say they do have a good collection. The music and decor makes it such a nice vibe. I was also surprised with their creativities with their cocktails that my friends had. This is definitely one of my must go to places whenever I visit HK again.
    It has certainly been a while and we're delighted to serve you again. We look forward to serving you and everyone for many years to come. Whisky & Words

    Perfect night out with friends
    Energetic and fun bar with an excellent selection of whiskies and cocktails. The environment is perfect to relax with friends and enjoy a few drinks. The music complements the atmosphere of this location well. The staff is friendly responsive and knowledgeable about the different whiskey and drinks they serve. Would highly recommend whiskey and cocktail lovers to check out this location.
    Thank you for the lovely review and we have passed on your kind message to our team. We hope you will join us again as our whisky collection continues to grow. Whisky & Words

    Hidden gem of a cocktail bar with excellent service
    Great underrated hidden gem of a bar if you’re looking for good cocktails, whiskey or conversation. Great cocktails, even better service. Pratap and Lee’s service was excellent, this is a place you would definitely revisit if you spend an evening here. Initially came across this place when Coa (across the street) was full and discovered this hidden gem which I can’t recommend enough.
    Thank you for visiting us and our vibrant street with some of Hong Kong's best eateries & bars. It was an absolute pleasure serving you and we hope to see you again in the near future. Whisky & Words
