Hong Kong’s latest MTR mall, The Southside, will completely open on June 21, after which visitors can check out all its 130 venues. The weekend opening is touted to be a soft launch, after which mall-goers can explore the five-storey 510,000 square feet space, and relax at the 14,000 square feet public rest area.

The Southside opened its first phase in December 2023, but visitors could only access 30 venues on the ground floor, which included McDonald’s, Jumping Gym U.S.A., and Hallmark. Starting this weekend, there will be more than 35 restaurants, such as the popular Vietnamese beef noodle restaurant Brass Spoon, Tokyo ramen house Konjiki Hototogisu, modern Thai establishment Bamboo Thai, and Taiwanese beef noodle shop DuanChunZhen.

The Southside’s soft launch on June 21 will give shoppers the chance to explore all five storeys of the mall.

The NOC Coffee Co. at The Southside will be the first branch of the coffee shop to have ice cream on its menu. Japanese matcha specialist nana’s green tea will open its second branch here, after making its Hong Kong debut at Airside last year. Caffeine addicts can also head to the new concept store of local coffee brand stain+ that is spread across 1,100 square feet. There will also be a city’super for upscale grocery shopping, Emperor Cinemas Plus for movie-goers, and UNIQLO for casual wear.

The Southside is connected to the Wong Chuk Hang MTR station on the South Island Line, and is an 8-minute ride from the Admiralty MTR station. In addition, the mall has more than 220 parking spaces with electric vehicle charging facilities for visitors who wish to drive there. The architecture of the mall takes inspiration from the sweeping coastline and natural beauty of the southern part of Hong Kong Island.
