  • Shop at Hong Kong’s coolest design and lifestyle boutiques
  • Try a Wagyu burger from a secret rooftop perch
  • Discover a trendy café with freshly ground coffee imported from London

The Star Street Precinct is a neat little hub brimming with hip shops and restaurants, and it’s just a short walk from the Conrad. Start off at Classified on Star Street for a coffee, or have a quick grass-fed Wagyu beef burger on the “secret” rooftop at Beef & Liberty upstairs. Next up: Sun Street to your left, with a branch of design store Kapok, stocking and interesting range of lifestyle goods, from niche magazines and jewelry to totes by local brand Mischa. A few doors down is Tsuchiya Kaban, known for Japanese handmade leather bags. Continue to the end, then slip into the alley on the right, to arrive at St. Francis Yard, where there’s a second Kapok store as well as a Monocle Shop for more minimalist travel accessories and designer tidbits. Wish you’d had a coffee earlier? At the end of St. Francis Yard, you’ll find the diminutive, plywood-clad St.francis.st, a café serving up coffee imported from London roasters Climpson & Sons.

​From the hustle and bustle of Queen’s Road East, navigate yourself around a maze of signs and shops - but don’t get too distracted! One of the pedestrian walkways will sneak you into the aptly named Moonful Court; Star Street runs parallel.
