6 Super-Chic New Spots in Sheung Wan

27/09/2012


Sheung Wan is abuzz with new restaurants and shops— plus a chic hotel that has solidified the area’s rebirth. BY JENNIFER CHEN



1 Hotel de Edge by Rhombus

Value-conscious jet-setters check in to the 32-story hotel for its streamlined rooms, free Wi-Fi and sweeping views of Victoria Harbour. For dinner, head to the on-site Glo restaurant, which attracts a stylish crowd. 94-95 Connaught Rd. W.; hoteldeedge.com.



2 Select 18

Discerning hipsters browse this petite spot for vintage eyeglass frames, from Moscot to Dior. It also stocks secondhand couture; look out for 1980’s Vivienne Westwood baubles and Chanel jackets. 18 Bridges St.; +852 9127 3657.



3 Konzepp

Part design shop, part café, this is a hangout for the local creative set. Browse the eclectic selection of wool and leather iPad cases, playful stationery and other products from emerging global designers. 50 Tung St.; konzepp.com.



4 The Collectives

Started by a group of stylists and ex-buyers, the boutique showcases labels with cult followings, including Thailand’s Milin, whose pleated dresses are perfect for summer. 45 Gough St.; thecollectives.org.



5 Doppio Zero

Italian-American chef Jake Addeo (of New York’s Esca and Milan’s Due Spada) heads up the laid-back restaurant named after the finest grind of Italian flour. The handmade pasta dishes— ravioli stuffed with braised beets; bucatini with spicy octopus—are the stars. 22 Bonham Strand; doppiozero.com.



6 Heirloom Eatery & More

The mismatched antique chairs here are usually filled with young
artists getting their fill of Mexican, Indonesian and American comfort food. Try the pork tacos—and finish with a carrot cupcake. 226 Hollywood Rd.; heirloomhk.com.
