Granville Road – A Must Visit for Fashion Shoppers
Granville Road started out as a handful of traders selling off discounted and clearance lines making use of the reasonably priced rent (at least compared to other areas of Tsim Sha Tsui), now it’s becoming a popular shopping destination.
True to its heritage it’s still an area for finding discounted fashion lines comprising mostly women’s fashion and mostly Asian sizes. I would also add that it’s focussed on the younger crowd of shoppers and also has a bent for Korean fashion which has been holding popularity with Asian shoppers for some time now.
At the Nathan Road end of Granville Road you are sure to notice The One (https://www.the-one.hk/en/), a retail shopping mall featuring a mix of fashion and food & beverage. If you’re facing shopping overload and need a good break from the bustling streets there is a cinema here too. Harlan’s bar & restaurant (http://www.jcgroup.hk/restaurants/harlans/) on the 19th floor offers superb indoor and outdoor views of the city and even to the harbour.
Some well-known stores along Granville Road include C.P.U which offers brands such as Arnold Palmer, Birkenstock, Adidas, Nike and Jimmy Black. IZZUE which is a Hong Kong fashion icon, Cotton ON clothing, Monki clothing and accessories and Workware heritage clothing at 29 Granville Road, NIKE at 46 Granville Road. You’ll find plenty of cosmetics here too, with Sasa having a store here.(25 Granville Road) and next to that is a Lush handmade cosmetics store. Lung Shing Dispensary (28 Granville Road) is quite famous for value cosmetics (and crowds).

You can find a lot of factory clearance stock, end-of-season lines, and there are some seconds stores too. Although, you can find some independent labels selling lines here too and for that head to Rise Shopping Arcade (5-11 Granville Circuit) and Beverley Commercial Centre (87-105 Chatham Road). There are also second-hand shops which are popular, stocking vintage items, shoes, clothes, handbags and more, for that try Mee & Gee (71 Granville Road).
Clear your diary for an afternoon (at least) and go explore, you won’t be disappointed.
Shopping makes you hungry, really. Fortunately, there are loads of places to snack away at. For Hong Kong style try Tai Ping Koon Restaurant (40 Granville Road), a must try is Yum Cha Tsim Sha Tsui (20 Granville Road), Pie and Tart (77 Granville Road). A great little foodie street near Granville Road is Hau Fook St where you’ll find Champ Hot Pot, ARISU Korean Restaurant, Yueshi Shengxiang Zhengqi Seafood Hot Pot, Hung Lee (Yum Cha), Caterking Dim Sum (Yum Cha) and more.
For coffee, there’s a Starbucks in the Albion Centre (2-6 Granville Road), Crema Coffee (96 Granville Rd) or Tamper Coffee Company (3 Granville Circuit).
After all that shopping and eating, your feet won’t feel tired? Oh yes they will. So, head to Allure Spa (http://www.hkallurespa.com) and get a massage in their wonderful little urban sanctuary.
