What's On HK

WEEKENDER: Vogue Fashion’s Night Out at Lane Crawford, Langham Food & Wine Festival, Viva Paws Vegas and more!

7 September, 2012

Hong Kong has granted us a few gorgeous days during our transition to September, so take advantage of these clear skies and warm breezes and enjoy our pick of the best events this weekend!

Fashionably fun!
The summer sales may be over, but there’s still plenty of fashion to get excited about thanks to Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, where the best designer brands will be showcasing their fall/winter collections. Take a whiff of Stella McCartney’s flowers, gawk at the dramatic Alexander McQueen runway exhibit, check out style blogger Susie Bubble’s top picks, and mix and mingle with editors, models, designers and local fashionistas all night long! There are also tattoo body art sessions, nail bars, wine tastings, workshops and even some sweet treats from Vero Chocolates and Petite Amanda Patisserie… Fashion fiends everywhere, this citywide extravaganza is set to be a night to remember!

When: 7 September; see full schedule of events here
Where: All Lane Crawfords in Hong Kong (Pacific Place, Canton Road, IFC & Times Square)
How much: Free entry

Foodie heaven
The best things in life deserve celebrating… and food is no exception! Celebrate the joy of eating during Langham’s Food and Wine Festival where you can enjoy the world’s best rum, foie gras, seafood and other spectacular dishes, chat with Michelin-starred chefs flown in especially for the occasion and even enroll yourself into some foodie workshops. Whether you’re into tapas or tea, you’ll definitely find something that takes your fancy, so book your spot and get ready to devour some delicious delicacies!

A dinner to die for
It’s 1956 in Havana and you’ve been invited to an oil tycoon’s birthday party, when all of a sudden he is murdered on the dancefloor! Who did it? Well maybe, just maybe, it was you! At this fun Murder Mystery Dinner at Grappa’s Cellar, you’ll be served a delicious three-course meal while you help Detective Malloy solve this interactive murder mystery. There’s nothing like a dangerous dinner to whet your weekend appetite!

When: 8 September, 7:30pm
Where: Grappa’s Cellar, Shop LG9 & B4A, Jardine House, 1 Connaught Place, Central, Hong Kong

W is the word
Don’t forget to take advantage of this month’s Sassy Happy Hour drinks special… simply mention “Sassy” at the bar to snag two for one drinks at WOOBAR in W Hong Kong all month long (check out all the details here)! Whilst you’re at the W, why not make a whole day of it – catch the last rays of summer at the highest outdoor pool in HK, turn back time with a Rodial facial at Bliss Spa or chow down on the signature lychee wood-fired crispy chicken at their restaurant Sing Yin (and we’ve not even mentioned their famous free-flow Sunday brunch yet!). The dark side isn’t looking quite so dark after all, right?!

When: Mention Sassy to get two for one drinks on Monday-Friday, 5-11pm; Saturday-Sunday, 8-11pm until 30 September

Viva Paws Vegas is a unique black-tie event featuring a formal dinner, glam games, a fabulous auction and a doggy fashion show and every dollar will be worth it when you know it all goes to helping adorable pups find a new home. So book your tickets before they sell out and get ready to face some serious puppy dog eyes!
