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

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The wanch is a fantastic place to go for great food and live music! With the new location open with lunch specials and dinner, we visited multiple times on our week stay in wan chai. We stayed at the renaissance harbour view hotel and the wanch was only a 5 minute walk. The atmosphere is welcoming and a larger space than their previous location. Great set up for bands to play. The owners and staff are always so welcoming and nice. I can’t say enough good things about this place! It is a must visit if you are in the area. We can’t wait to come back here again.

The salad is very fresh. The mango is a big surprise and lit up the whole dish. Truly makes you feel appetizing. The roasted chicken is full of favor. The side vegetables are equally good. The cheese cake is beautifully plated and delicious. The set costs only HK$98 (no service charges). It goes with iced lemon tea. For an add-on of HK$15, you could enjoy a cup of good coffee with your dessert. Make a Perfect Day for me!

Though the old Wanch definitely had something more in the way of atmosphere, the space here is absolutely superb and a great place to watch music or just have a drink.

I cam here with a sizable group for an End of Year Party and was impressed with how they had refurbished and retooled the joint! The upstairs Bar can accommodate a lot more people and we could make speeches and presentations from the central stage area. The acoustics still lave a little to be desired and it was very noisy and hard to hear oneself think. The meal selections for that night were really top notch.

I came here on my birthday, having read the positive reviews and hoping to enjoy some live music. Sadly, it was a very small venue, uncomfortably hot and the music was badly played 90s covers. The wine cost £9 for a glass, and was really not good at all. I left the wine.

This bar is a very small classic dive-bar style rock venue. The “stage” is right by the main window at the same level as the rest of the place so you’re walking by the guitarist or other musician on your way in and rocking out with them face to face while in there. The staff were a group of fairly friendly women though they varied in demeanour. The drinks are an ok price, about 55-65 hkd for draught and bar rail. The music varies. I went in on two separate occasions and once got an acoustic solo rock act, and the other time a French band plying a mix of French songs and Bowie covers, and a three piece rock outfit that played 70s songs. The quality was pretty good on all accounts and the sound was loud! There is music every night and start time of the first act is about 6pm I believe. There are posters all over the wall of different bands and and music art for a great grungy feel.

As many do, I quite wanted to see some live music while I spent time in HK. After reading online I saw that the Wanch was a hotspot for live music.

Upon arrival I quickly realised that the bar is absolutely tiny, perhaps capable of holding maximum 30 people comfortably and that’s at a stretch. The beer was grossly overpriced and the place was just generally uncomfortable.

The saving grace was the music setup. It was professionally done and the band sounded great. It’s clear the owner/manager cares about live music in Hong Kong.

Perhaps the Wanch, despite HK rent hikes, should consider a larger venue for the future?
