The area
Neighborhood: Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.

Interesting architecture…
May 2021 • Solo
…of a type that, unfortunately, has rarely been preserved in HK. So it’s worth seeking out to see what areas of the city used to look like before the more modern buildings replaced them. However it won’t take you long to really see all it has to offer so maybe best enjoyed if you are in the area anyway.

Green House (Comix Home Base) - Stop 1 on the Wanchai Heritage Trail
Nov 2020
The Green House (also known as the Comix Home Base) is located on Mallory Street and stop 1 on the Wanchai Heritage Walk. What you will find is an early 20th-century housing project, featuring cast iron pillars, iron balustrade and French style windows.

The property has been repainted (is no longer green) and restored as part of the Urban Renewal projects to preserve and repurpose various heritage buildings around the city. In addition to being renovated, the Green House is now a venue for showcasing HK comics, animation works and other art endeavours. Renamed as the Comix Home Base, there is a 300 sq. metre indoor and outdoor courtyard space used for exhibitions. A couple shops and eateries make use of the venue as well.

You can stop by for a quick 5-10 minute look-see of the old Green House or stick around longer to visit one of the shops or to view exhibitions if one is taking place when you visit. Then you con can continue onward to see more of the historic attractions included on the Wan Chai Heritage Walk.

Revitalized Historic Architecture !!
Apr 2018 • Solo
Comprising a cluster of 10 pre-war Grade 2 historic buildings built in the 1910s, these historically significant buildings were homes of the working class.

This is the first art community in Hong Kong conjoining creativity in comics and animation with revitalized historic architecture.

Spend some time there to understand more of Hong Kong’s History in Comics.

Apart from the exhibitions, they have eateries, barber shop and Tea shop there !!

A great way to have a relaxing moment immersing with arts and history !

Historical buildings used to promote arts and culture in HK
Dec 2017 • Couples
Comix Home Base (free entry) in Wan Chai is an interesting Urban Renewal project which achieves two aims of 1) perserving a collection of early 20th century heritage buildings and 2) fostering arts and culture, making use of the buildings and space as a showcase of Hong Kong comics and animation works.

Here you will find 300-square meter indoor and outdoor space used for exhibitions, shops and a few eateries. We mostly enjoy visiting to view the historical building architecture but it is also worth stopping by if you have interest in comics and related leisure pursuits.

You can find and enter the Comix Home Base from either Burrows or Mallory Rds, in between Johnston and Wan Chai Roads.

Easily overlooked, worth a visit
Jan 2017 • Solo
Mallory Street, and in particular the Comix Home Base, is certainly worth dropping. A few minutes walk from the redeveloped hip areas of Wanchai, this new museum is housed in a refurbished old building and has interesting exhibits on local comics (which is a great way to get insights into the development of the local culture). The place is not well known and generally very quiet; worth a quick side trip if one happens to be in the vicinity.

rare find; local gem
May 2017 • Solo
I stumbled onto this place while walking around Wanchai. It's a different kind of space (green) smacked right in the busy, noisy Wanchai district. For those who have fond memory of Hong Kong local grown comic books, this would be a place for you.

a real find
Jan 2017 • Family
Comix Home base is a relatively new museum, and it's easily overseen, even by locals. I learned about it after the death of a very well known Hong Kong cartoonist in early January 2017, whose work was exhibited at this little museum. My wife wanted to have a look, and the museum had just extended the exhibit by some days because of a sudden surge of visitors. In fact, when we arrived, even Hong Kong TV was there and the reporter interviewed my wife and daughter. The exhibit was about the cartoons with 'Old Master Q', of whom I had not previously heard. But the cartoons gave me a very interesting insight into the development of local Hong Kong culture since the 1960's..... and the museum is a cool spot to visit.....
