The street used to be a hub for printing presses and printing-related businesses. Over the years, most of these establishments have since closed down or moved to other parts of the city and new posh shops and restaurants took over the premises.
Gough Street is now informally refered to as NoHo, which means north of Hollywood Road. Trendy shops selling a wide array of fashion styles, accessories, homeware and furniture, as well as chic restaurants, cafes and bars serving treats for all appetites, line this up and coming Hong Kong destination.
Some of the popular establishments here include the Kau Kee Restaurant, a noodle shop that specializes in beef brisket noodles in clear soup and British furniture brand Timothy Oulton.
To get there, take MTR to Sheung Wan Station, get out from Exit A2. Walk along the Bonham Street to Wellington Street, turn to Gough Street at Aberdeen Street.
