Check out Patterson St, it has I.T., APC, Westwood, Stampz, Y3, ect. There are also some fun shops, galleries and restaurants in soho and midlands. Make sure to take the tram up the mountain for amazing views of Hong Kong. Have Fun. I am going next week for work, and love it every time I go.

Thanks a lot guys, this info really helps.

Can anyone tell me which sneaker spots to avoid? I know HK is full of grade A fakes...

Anyone know anything about the Kee Club? I've noticed that they usually have some pretty decent DJs playin there, but the clientele looks a bit dressy. In all the pics i've seen, ppl are all rockin' smart shoes..

Thanks in advance.

Kee club has a model/ who's who group. A lot like Dragon Eye. If you like the music though, who cares. I haven't been for a long time and the club scene is always changing. No matter what it can be good people watching.

Kee Club's food is supposed to be really good, and it's open to the public for lunch. I got this information from a friend so it'll be worth your while to double check.

Other clubs in Central which are Hip at the moment includes Hei Hei and Volar --- not sure about their policy but I think Volar's members only, but they might make an exception for you since you're a tourist :)

I live in Hong Kong but don't find much shops that are enticing --- I.T. group's put out a good selection of japanese labels, but I'd prefer shopping in Europe, or Tokyo.
This is all random.......
