DJ Angus Wong is the resident DJ at the W Hong Kong, and one of the most exciting up and coming DJs on the scene. He is currently on tour with W Hotels, which has him playing in cities all over the world including Paris, San Francisco, and Barcelona just to name a few. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Angus shared with us a few of his favorite hangouts in his hometown.

Grab a bite
Translated to Banquet of the Star, is the first Chinese restaurant for the entire W Hotels group in W Hong Kong. Very delicate and authentic Chinese cuisine done right. Great place to try pairing wine with Chinese food too. 1 Austin Road West, Kowloon Station, Kowloon, Hong Kong. http://www.w-hongkong.com/en/
Yung Kee Restaurant
Every day as early as 11am, you see a line of Japanese tourist queuing up neatly along Wellington Street waiting to order their take-away roasted geese. Excellent dim sum in the afternoon, and their Chinese BBQ is quite likely the best in Hong Kong. 32-40 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong. http://www.yungkee.com.hk/
Tsui Wah Restaurants
A chain of canteen-style food everywhere in Hong Kong. Some locations open 24 hours so as you can guess, it’s the late hang-out place after a long night of work (or going out). Try their iced tea with milk (or with lemon if you prefer) and their French toast, two of their specialties. But really, order anything off the menu, I promise it would be unexpectedly good. http://www.tsuiwahrestaurant.com/
An upscale but edgy boutique chain that carries otherwise hard-to-find designer items such as Givenchy, Yohji Yamamoto, Kris Van Assche etc. http://www.joyce.com/
They carry more mainstream fashion brands like Burberry Prorsum and Yves Saint Laurent. Lane Crawford also has a big section for cosmetic consignment. Did I mention shopping is tax free in Hong Kong? http://www.lanecrawford.com/
More like a design store but they have some really cool fashion items as well. They have a few stores all a few steps away from each other in the quiet part of Wanchai. They carry cute fashion brands like Kitsuné and Jack Spade. They are one of the first place to bring my favourite – Happy Socks to Hong Kong! http://www.ka-pok.com/webshop/
The main going-out place for people who are serious about their music. My friend DJ BJAM is their resident DJ. They host regular International DJs such as Moonlight Matters, Diplo and Digitalism. Basement 38-44 D’Aguilar Street, Central, Hong Kong. http://www.volar.com.hk/
Another hidden gem which is popular among the hipsters and the cool. Resident DJ Ryan Ash basically invented a new category called Nu House. Drinks are reasonably priced and people are very friendly over there. I went there for their parties with Don Diablo and Punks Jump Up and I always have a good time! If you go, ask for their manager Chester and tell him I send you, he might let you stroke his mustache for good luck. G/F, 24-30 Ice House Street, Central, Hong Kong.
The new rooftop bar right next to the swimming pool on the 76th floor of W Hong Kong. Amazing view, amazing cocktails, beautiful crowd too. We regularly host pool party in the summer. One of the hottest place in Hong Kong during the summer. Last year I did a party with Scarlett Etienne there and I think at the end we play till 6am, in our bathing suit! 1 Austin Road West, Kowloon Station, Kowloon, Hong Kong. http://www.whongkong.com/en/wetdeck
