Already filled to the brim with accommodations of all types, it is impressive what a city as busy as Hong Kong still manages to fit amidst its bustling streets. This week, the city’s historic Yau Ma district welcomed a new kid on the block: a boutique hotel called Hotel Stage. The location itself is a draw, with traditional family-owned shops that have been in operation for generations lining the area; there are Chinese hand embroidery bridal shops, Chinese herbal medicine apothecaries, vintage tea houses, and an old iconic theater all around, making the neighborhood a scene that’s sure to inspire one’s senses.

Inside, however, the hotel is a spectacle in its own right. Its 97 minimalist rooms have a cool ambiance to them, with grey and wooden tones accentuating the stylish white-dominated space. Those staying at its Club and Suite rooms are granted 24-hour access to the library lounge, where, when not dining at the onsite Kitchen Savvy restaurant, guests can enjoy light refreshments served throughout the day.

Beyond a hospitality for travelers looking to explore Hong Kong, however, Hotel Stage aims to stand out as a melting pot for creative types and become a gateway to the city’s art and cultural scene. In a space called The Muse, the hotel provides a stage for culture and community, where regular events will be held as a platform of idea-sharing. Divided into three sections, this space features a selection of books from around the world, a wine bar that features 100 hand-picked bottles, and a space for exhibitions, performances, workshops, and other cultural initiatives.

“Hotel Stage is a landmark and community hub with our staff serving as stage managers of our guests’ experiences,” says James Hung, general manager of Hotel Stage.  “We have created a setting for local artists, performers and artisans to showcase the soul of the city. Here, the curious traveler can discover a deep connection with the local community and be inspired by our unique ambiance of living artistry.
