Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Hong Kong Culture Centre is situated along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade in the Kowloon Peninsula. Completed in 1989, this is a large complex with a 2000 seat concert hall, 1700 Grand Theatre, smaller Studio Theatre, Exhibition gallery as well as multiple exhibition foyers.

    The venue is used throughout the year for world-class concerts, theatre and musical productions, opera, dance and drama performances which you can reserve at the ticketing box office (open from 10am to 9:30pm daily) or reserve through the URBTIX website.

    Note: The Hong Kong Arts Festival is held during the early months each year. Numerous large scale performances take place at the Hong Kong Culture Centre as part of this important annual programme.

    It was not much to look at but this historic building is the only surviving pre-war cinema building in the urban area of Hong Kong. We wandered around the small lobby and learnt that it has become a venue dedicated to Cantonese opera. We were told some of the theater's interior were original.

    The location provides a convenient place for special events and the participants could engage the crowd directly.

    The Ko Shan Theatre and New Wing are the centrepiece of the city park along Ko Shan Park Road in the To Kwa Wan neighbourhood. While the theatre house is open during scheduled performances, the park grounds are available for use 24 hours a day.

    Here you will find nice, landscaped levels with park benches, elderly exercise equipment, children's playground area, football pitch and public toilets. In the end, it is a decent city park for area residents to enjoy and potentially worth spending a few minutes to enjoy if coming to Ko Shan for a performance.

    The theatre itself has been a place to take in Cantonese opera since the early 1980s. A bit overshadowed now with the opening of the magnificent Xiqu Centre in TST, this is still a popular venue for locals who appreciate and take in regular performances.

    Note: Much easier travelling to Ko Shan Theatre and park grounds these days with the opening of the nearby To Kwa Wan MTR Station, just 5-6 minute on foot.

    Interesting intro to elements of the Cantonese opera repertoire, in a modern and intimate setting (seating less than 200). Subtitles on screen means no need to consult program notes even if you do not understand Cantonese, although some know of Chinese history and culture will make the performance much more comprehensible. Unfortunately during Covid-19 no food or drinks allowed so the 'Tea House' setting goes for naught, but overall quite enjoyable even though I must admit opera (Chinese or Western) is not exactly my cup of tea. But setting quite close to the stage does allow me to watch the footwork, gestures and other details much more clearly. Performers are all young, which is good (this art form need new blood) though they may not be top notch technique wise. All told a worth-while experience.

    The Iron Fairies is simply an iconic bar in Hong Kong. Every time I have been it has been very busy and I am told at the weekend the queues can take a long time. However, this is absolutely no surprise because the interior is stunning. It creates a really nice ambiance for drinking or chilling after work. This is made better by the fantastic staff- the drinks too are very good, but slightly on the expensive side. Everything about my experience was amazing apart from one crucial aspect of a bar- the music. The DJ was far from impressive and often did not even attempt to mix songs in, it was very choppy with songs cut out at weird places and no blending of new songs. This was quite disappointing as one would expect a bar of this stature to employ a decent DJ. The music selection was ok- there were some good songs but I was distracted by the mixing (or lack of). I look forward to going back and hearing a DJ mixing properly, because I have no doubt that will make this one of the best bars in Hong Kong.

    They say that laughter is the best medicine. With a year like 2020, the Riff has been the medicine I needed.

    I have already been to 8 shows and at each one experienced full body laughs that made my abs sore.

    The club is absolutely emasculate and the what sets it apart from the rest is the passion for comedy and attention to detail that the management has that makes each show truly entertaining. From open mics to headline events, the Riff puts on a great show.

    I’m proud to live in a city that features such tremendous local talent and the Riff does a top notch job of showcasing it. Feel proud Hong Kong, the Riff is a gem you won’t find in many other cities.

    If you are in Hong Kong for more than 3-4 days then this is a fun little spot to add to your itinerary to see on Hong Kong Island. Make sure to leave enough time to get there because, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's only open for 30 minutes a day and the actual gun is shot only once exactly at noon. The officer stands and looks at his watch until it is precisely noon! A lovely little bit of history.

    Recently attended the video screening of the MET Opera 'Massenet's Cinderella' at the Seminar Hall of the Xiqu Centre in TST. This is always a beautiful and delightful building to pass through and spend a bit of time. Viewing the NYC based MET Opera by way of screening was a fun way to spend a couple of hours indoors during a hot summer afternoon as well.

    Performances can be booked online or at the ticket office on the ground floor of the Xiqu Centre. There Seminar Hall is a small house with decent seating fairly close to the screen. Lighting and sound are just fine, the room is kept a bit cool from constant air-conditioning.

    After or before performances, do have a quick walk around the Xiqu Centre, enjoy the open sitting area with trees and a long curved bench. You'll also find a couple eateries and tea shops on the ground floor as well.

    It's a small cosy bar with the best musicians in HK. They also bring in acts from outside HK. Drinks are reasonable. Staff is pleasant. Best place in town for high quality live music.

    Afternoon visits there were quiet and productive given the way the seating was laid out. Reasonable food items, good coffee and good service. Great space, and nicely laid out.

    I just went for Ding Ding Comedy night! It was an awesome event with 5 different comedians. They were all hilarious and it was a great time. $185 HKD if you buy the tickets before and $250 at the door. Would recommend for a great even after a fun dinner in Sheung Wan.

    The bar is located in Eaton Hotel, Jordan which isn't an obvious place for tourists (apart from the market) but is a nice setting with some art deco furniture with a hip vibe. The seating well spaced & there was outside seating as well which was quite a large space.

    The happy hour offer is a free-flow affair, wasn't really my bag tbh & for this reason it kinda makes some of the drinks overpriced - such as the cocktails which would be $100-120 with the service charge, whereas before their happy hour included all drinks & wasnt free flow (from what I heard).

    Overall, it's a good place to try if you're in this area. I had a chance to talk to the manager and supervisor, they were both friendly. I would only suggest they change the happy hour and incorporate some dimmed lighting for more of a chilled atmosphere.

    Fun way of spending a few hours in Kowloon Park by watching all different types of amateur “Kung fu” performances. We even got to see a lion dance performed and were able to have our picture taken with the “lion”.

    The venue is at the south-east corner of Kowloon Park. For the viewers, there was a big tent with rows of plastic chairs set up. I got there about 20 minutes before the performances started and there was still a number of empty seats left. Remaining viewers had to stand.

    I stayed for an hour watching the performances and then moved on. It’s not a must do activity in Hong Kong, but I’m still glad I saw it.
