Unless you’ve had your eyes seriously fixed to your phone screen the last three decades, you wouldn’t have missed the impressive California Tower soaring 26 floors above Lan Kwai Fong. Home to some of Sassy’s favourite hangouts like CÉ LA VI, Townhouse, Porterhouse by Laris and Pure Fitness, you’ve probably seen one (or all!) of us excitedly waiting for the glass elevator on the ground floor a few times this year. So when we got the scoop that California Tower was celebrating their revamp and throwing a Grand Opening party, we may well have been first in line (yet again) to find out more. Oh, and did we mention, it involves cocktails. Lots of cocktails!
Think cocktail shaking, graffiti spraying and smoothie making (is this just us, or does that sound like a Nicki Minaj lyric?). Events, workshops and special offers are happening in the tower throughout the whole of November, December and January, so we’ve picked some of our ‘must-dos’ that we think you should try:
