Frock the Sevens!
We’ve found the perfect alternative to the Sevens this Friday night! If you’d rather spend the start of your weekend sipping champers and getting a mani instead of chugging beer in a sweaty South Stand crowd, then head over to one of our favourite stores, Polkadot Boutique, for a ‘Frocking Fabulous Girls Night Out’. Our Super Styler Sabrina will be there to give you a special styling session with our other Super Styler Maria, who will be showcasing the new Spring Summer what the frock!? collection. There will also be express manis, monogram services and personalised illustrations of you in your frock! Your one-stop destination before a night out on the town!
When: Friday, 27 March, 5-8pm
Where: Polkadot Boutique, 2/F, 29 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong
How much: Free to attend! Bring some cash though in case you spot a pretty summer dress to purchase.
We’ll drink to that!
We do love a good bar crawl every now and then, but we’ve found one that is completely unique! ‘Raising the Bar’ takes the concept of a bar crawl and gives it an educational edge by having professors give inspirational talks at different venues around town. Starting in New York, ‘Raising the Bar’ is now making its Asian debut in Hong Kong with ten professors talking about a variety of different topics at ten cool bars around town. From the role of martial arts in Chinese culture, to how Hong Kong consumes illicit drugs, this is a great opportunity to learn something new while enjoying a drink or two! See all talks and speakers here.
When: Tuesday, 31 March, 7.30 – 9.30pm
Where: Boom, Club 71, Culture Club, Fringe Club, KEE Club, Libertine, Little Lab Central, Orange Peel, Salon Number 10, and Sense 99
How much: $50. Tickets available here.
