Start your tour of Sheung Wan off on the right foot with a decent coffee. Local indie chain Coco Espresso recently left its tiny digs on Queen’s Road Central, moved around the corner and made 13-15 Jervois Street – near to Exit A2 – its new HQ. A gorgeous space with outdoor seating, large windows, plenty of room and the brand’s usual array of beans from around the world, it’s a worthy spot for Coco to call home.
Ground zero for cool in Hong Kong, Sheung Wan is the city’s original hipster neighbourhood. As such, there’s an awful lot to see and do in the area. Much of it is further up the slopes of Aberdeen Street and around Hollywood Road, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some of the best the neighbourhood has to offer without trudging up to those lofty heights. Down nearer the harbour there are plenty of delights, as we’re about to demonstrate.
