“Jamming at the Wanch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Hong Kong can be a lonely town for the newly arrived, but if you have a musical bent the Wanch bar on Jaffe Road in Wanchai is a great place to get yourself into the local music scene. The Wanch is famous for it's local expat talent and there has been some great bands put together over the years from the monthly Jam Session. These have included PNS, Splash it About, AWOL the Sisters of Sharon to name a few. The local press covers an extensive whats on but if you can play or sing and fancy a go, head off for the jam night and put your name down. The place is tiny, but the San Mig is chilled and the atmosphere is steamy. Great place to people watch and listen to a very eclectic collection of musical styles.

Don't miss this place, no matter how long your stay in Hong Kong. Great live music and very friendly staff. It's small but cosy.

Very small venue, expensive drinks compared to other local live music venues... watched an industrial goth band for a few minutes then went elsewhere.. maybe next time

“Great Live Music Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

the Wanch offers live music every night. Open Jam night is Monday and it is a great place to hang out and listen to these 'Monday Night Musicians' play their stuff. Friendly staff, no cover and a great attitude for supporting live music in HK. Highly recommended on Sundays too. Live band with many singers !
