Neighbourhood Guide: NoHo, Hong Kong

SoHo is so noughties. Nowadays, it’s all about NoHo’s enclave of indie sip, sup and spend spots.

Flats on, Fanny, you’re in for a serious work out… of your will power, that is. Following a gentle warm up circuit of restored heritage landmark PMQ, scoot down Aberdeen St (although, perhaps it’s wisest to walk, she really is rather steep) and let the games commence.

PMQ, 35 Aberdeen St, Central, +852 2870 2335, pmq.org.hk

Cross Hollywood Rd and keep an eye out for Orient Senses on your left, where you’ll spy a super stash of gold and silver gilding for sirs and hers. A little further down is fash-forward ABoutique bursting with glam gal-wear from style stars including, Frame Denim, YMC and Swedish Hasbeens.

Glad rags sorted, swing left into Gough St. If you’re already feeling the shopping bag burn, rest those weary feet and fingers at Asia’s first Caudalie Spa, which proves beyond reasonable doubt that wine is indeed good for you (or at least that its grapes contain anti-aging properties).

Ready to resume? A couple of doors along is designware desti Mr Blacksmith with top tchotchkes your home is crying out for. Next door to that is cute kiddie cache Petit Bazaar, and next door again is lifestyle stop WOAW for designer eyewear, techy bits, funky footwear and coffee corner Elephant Grounds.

WOAW, 11 Gough St, Central, +852 2552 8869, woawstore.com

If, however, you don’t like your Joe with a side of hipster, pop across to Parisian transplant Agnès B. Café L.P.G. for a slightly more refined brew, plus florist, and then continue onto Brit brand Timothy Oulton, replete with lovely leather goods and Union Jacks a plenty, plus adjoining resto-bar Gough’s on Gough with show-pony crystal and marble outfit and mod bites. Onwards to homegrown darling and pioneer of the Gough St pilgrimage, Homeless’ Nordic Room, for all your decor desires.

Phew! It’s time for a post-retail refreshment. But what’s your poison – a crafty concoction? Or are you more of a cool glass of vin naturel? Both? That’s fine. Shuffle up Shin Hing’s steps for NEO on your right – a retro-future-fitted subterranean den tricked out with vintage arcade games, more neon than the Sammy’s Kitchen’s cow, and some left-field libations (try the Rumbut) – or ascend a little further to experience authentic cave au vin La Cabane, pouring some first-rate artisanal drops. Cheers, dears!

NEO, 10 Shin Hing St, Central, +852 2812 228, neocc.hk

La Cabane, B/F, 97 Hollywood Rd, Central, +852 2517 0186, lacabane.hk
