Hong Kong has no shortage of cocktail bars that pump out upbeat DJ tunes, but occasionally you may want to head somewhere with a more cultured vibe. For that, you’ll want to head to Visage One, one of the city’s best kept musical secrets in the back alley.

Banky Chan, a quiet man with peppered hair started this one-man shop more than 10 years ago as he was determined to free himself of strings attached to others. There you can get a haircut which is almost a confidential encounter. 

On Saturday nights, from 8:30 to 11:30, Visage One transforms into a live music venue, with a rotation of acts to keep things fresh, allowing guests to experience live music in Hong Kong the most intimate way.

With some of the city’s best musicians playing nose-to-nose with the small group of plucky music lovers, it feels like you’re going to a friend’s house rather than a music hall. Audiences can crowd around to listen — and it gets crowded, fast.

The bar is simple: water, whisky, beer, wine. You don’t pay as a guest. You put your tip in the box. To Chan, anyone who walks in is obligated to stop and listen to the music. He is strict with this rule—no talking is allowed when the musicians are at work or you will be thrown out.

Visage One’s landline is the only way to get in touch with Benky Chan if you want to make an appointment for a haircut. Call 2523 8988.
