Spotlight on Central #3 – Power Lunches and After Hours

While Hong Kong’s Central district is primarily associated with banking, finance, and business elites, this area does not lack in amenities. In fact, its buzzing social scene is one of the major attractions that has put this district on the world map.

There’s another advantage to locating your business here – the easy access to upscale restaurants, trendy after-hour outlets, and communal venues for informal appointments. It’s convenient to host clients or to kick back and relax after work.

For urban professionals that seeks epicurean adventures, nightlife options, as well as health and fitness solutions for a wholesome lifestyle – Central and SoHo Hong Kong comes as a right fit.

Cafes and Restaurants for Business Needs

It’s great that you enjoy the food and atmosphere of local cafes and restaurants, but they also bring practical, strategic advantages for your business as a plus.

Making time for a shared experience with business associates at a social environment can be invaluable to solidify deals and contacts. You can shape better working relationships on a personal level, take the edge off serious discussions, get enough time for discussion beyond a locked meeting schedule, and be on an equal footing with everyone without concerns of a hierarchical sentiment.

You can get this from breakfast meetings or business lunches at restaurants in Central, with the confidence that table services will be prompt and proper, and meals will be of high standards.

With key locations in Central’s busiest areas, Compass Offices’ flexible office space is conducive for businesses to plan a day with clients. Complement your dining get-together with a formal appointment at meeting rooms in a professional environment, and round up the day with a meal or a drink at venues that’s easily just steps away from the centres.

The After-Hours Scene

If you and your clients fancy a tipple or a good meal after a hard day at work, Central and SoHo Central has some of the best options. For any occasion, you can check out the stone-clad stretch of Pottinger Street, Peel Street slope, Staunton Street and its crosses and junctions, and the infamous Lan Kwai Fong area. These areas are teeming with mid-to upper range restaurants, bars, and clubs, for your fill.

An editor’s favourite is the Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Arts, located in the restored Central Police Station compound. This art and culinary landscape not only covers grounds for fine wine and dine, it is an art and culture escape that’s also great for daytime visits.

A Balanced Lifestyle

When you’ve clocked out of work, or find yourself with time during the day or weekends, Central is a great place to spend time traipsing around and discovering places like art galleries and cafes. There’s the likes of NOC, The Cupping Room, and NINETYs for coffee before you hop over to learn some history at the Hong Kong News Expo and the Hong Kong Maritime Museum, to name a few. Health aficionados can also tend to their wellbeing at yoga studios and gyms such as Kita Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, as well as Pure Fitness.

For those who seek a more exclusive experience, there are also private members’ clubs, such as the American Club and the Aberdeen Marina Club.

An All-in-one Living and Work Area

People are easily drawn to Central for its business and lifestyle opportunities. Central Hong Kong offers unparalleled access to business networking and living conveniences, whether to cement business relations over a meal, or to enjoy some respite under personal capacity.

All in all, Central offers a matchless combination for work and play with a rich option of amenities and experiences for that perfect life balance.
