With plans to catch up at NOPA 2016, we have Wan Chai on our mind.
Suzi Wong’s neighborhood is becoming a little hotbed for all things natural and organic. We prepared a little guide to the area we will share with visitors at the at the end of the month. It seems the perfect time to bring everyone together and introduce you to each other. New businesses are opening in the ‘hood along with established members on streets that used to be the exclusive domain of all-night bars and plumbing shops.
All member listings are dated so you can see how fresh the details are.
Get in touch when you would like more details or an introduction … naturally.
