Formerly Orange Peel – a cracking venue in its own right – this re-imagining hopes to establish BB as the premier jazz venue in town. Although we had mixed feeling about the place when it first opened, it’s since lifted its members-only policy and become one of Hong Kong’s most reliable venues to enjoy a good night of music. The heavily art deco-inspired venue hosts a jazzy happy hour with a resident band playing every night, as well as local and international jazz acts.
We’re a classy bunch in Hong Kong and there’s no classier genre than jazz (quiet, classical fans, we want a drink with our live music). As such, the 852’s a veritable hub for anyone keen to see any kind of jazz across the genre’s differing sub-genres. Here’s our pick of some of the best around.
