Cissy Pao-watari,

overs and shak­ers were out in full force last month for the grand open­ing of Soho 189 Art Lane—hong Kong’s hippest new gallery and life­style com­plex, con­cep­tu­alised by artist­turned-busi­ness­woman Cissy Pao-watari. Lo­cated at 189 Queen’s Road West, it houses Jane Chao-lee’s Ga­lerie Huit, Leo Gallery and Pearl Lam Gal­leries’ sec­ond Hong Kong space. It also fea­tures a beauty sa­lon by celebrity hair­styl­ist Kim Robin­son and the Span­ish tapas bar La Paloma. “Re­tail space with such high ceil­ings on lanes like Soho 189 is very rare in Hong Kong. When I saw this space be­come avail­able, my vi­sion for the hub was born,” says Pao-watari. “I am ex­cited be­cause I am push­ing bound­aries and ven­tur­ing into the old West­ern Dis­trict neigh­bour­hood, which I hope will at­tract more in­ter­est and cul­tural devel­op­ment.”
