Central, with its proximity to Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour, has served as the centre of trade from the earliest day of British colonial era in the 1800s, and continues to be the financial hub (and now international restaurant haven & nightlife centre as well) after the transfer of sovereignty to China in ’97.
SoHo, Central, Hong Kong is not to be confused with the SoHo neighbourhood in New York City’s Manhattan, or the early ’50s centre of beatnik culture in the Soho area of London England’s West End. This SoHo derived its name from its location: South of Hollywood Road – including Staunton Street and Elgin Street, and extending up to Robinson Road, in the Central district of Hong Kong.
Soho is a thriving area, packed with trendy international restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, bars, pubs, art galleries and exciting nightlife. (We enjoyed eating at Life Cafe, drinking at El Taco Loco, and shopping at Goods of Desire for unique gifts). This fabulous nightlife centre is filled with nightclubs and snack shops where party goers can top up on good-eats, and drink into the wee hours of the night.
