With new restaurants and bars opening every week, Wan Chai is set to be the next SoHo, but before we jump into the future, take a look into the past at The Blue House. Located at the site of the district’s first hospital from the 1870’s, the building was rebuilt as a four-storey balcony-style tenement in the 1920’s and painted bright blue, the only color available, during a 1950’s renovation. One of the few remaining buildings of its kind, The Blue House is now home to the Wan Chai Livelihood Museum, which organizes regular tours to explore different facets of the district’s history.
