What’s on this weekend…
Okay, okay someone can hit the pause button now – how did we end up so far into November already? Days are whizzing by and before we know it, we’ll be panic buying gifts, belting out carols (after a few too many glasses of bubbly, no doubt!) and stuffing our faces with turkey and cranberries. But for now, let’s enjoy the end of the month and focus on all the exciting events happening this weekend – we’ve got a little secret for you…
Guess what Sassy Girls, we have a secret – can you keep it? Secret Theatre has landed on the shores of the 852 all the way from New York, Los Angeles and London, bringing with it international recognition for the most fascinating and secretive theatre project that we’ve ever seen. Taking place in the most unexpected of locations, you’ll dive head first into mystery and be immersed in a clever and creative show unlike any other. On the day of your booking you’ll be given a location, a password and the rest is up to you and your imagination. The thought of ‘not knowing’ can be a little bit daunting, but in this case it’s all a part of the excitement and will breathe a little fresh air in to your average weekend. We promise that you’ll leave itching for more and seeking out all of Hong Kong’s cultural quirks. Tickets are selling out by the minute so be sure to grab one quickly and remember – lips sealed, girls.
When: Now until Sunday, 13 December. Shows on Thursday, Fridays, two on Saturdays, and Sundays.

It’s time to kick back and chill, as we make one last effort to soak up the sun before swapping our sunglasses for beanies – and you’re in for a great weekend with OoOH HK at their biggest ever reggae beach party. Wander on over to Mavericks and join the two-day, intergalactic beachside battle as 11 DJ Dubstars spin a mix of the finest dubstep, reggae, roots and ska. Grab yourself some delicious grub and a few cold ones and don’t worry about a thing, the weekend is here and every little thing is gonna be all right.

With live music and good ol’ family entertainment, bask in the sunshine and bright blue skies (fingers crossed) as you sample the best of what Blighty has to offer. Try your hand at croquet, gorge on ‘the best fish and chips in Asia’ and – in true British fashion – be sure to have a glass of bubbly in your hands at all times!

Hey you! Yes you, the one who likes to party, we hope you’ve already got tickets to Karma Kid tonight? If you’re yet to convince the squad however, then listen up! BLOOM BLOOM ROOM x FRESH OFF THE BOAT present you with DJ prodigy and all-time crowd pleaser, Karma Kid. Since turning his parent’s back room into a mini make-shift studio and despite only starting to record three years ago, he’s since made some serious mixes with the likes of Annie Mac, Star Slinger and Bondax – and he’s gracing the decks with his future bass and garage beats right here in Hong Kong! Time to suck up the pending hangover and send that group WhatsApp message, Sassy Girls; you’re in for a big Friday night!

LKF will turn carnival crazy this weekend with over 80 booths and stalls full of entertainment, prizes and mouth-watering food to tuck into. Switch up your usual night dancing on the bar in Al’s Diner and join in this year’s Korean themed affair with heaps of dancers and acrobatics as they make their way up and down the strip shaking their tail-feathers. Look out as the hill you know and love is transformed with thousands of Mugunghwa, Korea’s national flower. Nibble your way through traditional dishes that’ll give you a taste of a Korean winter in preparation for our own! So, if you’re one to sneak away early, kebab in hand come 11pm on a Saturday night out (no judgement!) we implore you to stay out and get stuck in to this foodie affair and boogie on through the night…
