It seems as though we’re not the only ones who are obsessed with the recently launched Pokémon Go in HK.
Restaurant, bars and even retail are jumping in on the craze, with various promotions, discounts and poké-themed offers. Check out our favourite Pokémon Go steals and deals around Hong Kong – gotta catch ’em all…
One of our favourite cocktail spots in town, The Woods, is showcasing their creativity yet again with a Pokémon Go ‘Secret Menu’. Head over to this trendy poke-stop (where they may even set off some ‘Lures’!) and take advantage of the complimentary Wi-Fi and USB wall sockets for a seriously sophisticated Pokémon hunting spree! Expect beautifully presented, innovative cocktails themed with some of our favourite Pokémon characters; go for a Bulbasaur Basil Daiquiri, a Squirtle Tom Collins or a Charmander Pineapple Verdita! How cute?!

It’s no secret that we’re massive fans of the reasonably priced, high quality, timeless classics from fashion retailer Grana, and now we’ve got even more of an excuse to be hanging out at The Fitting Room! Grana have set ‘Lures‘ up at their physical store on Hollywood Road, so don’t forget to stop by if you’re on the hunt for Pokémon. What’s more, if you stop by and successfully catch those sneaky Pokémon in store (who knows, that elusive Pikachu could be hiding in the silk selection!) you’ll also get a special Grana promo code to use online. Pokémon and shopping? Sounds like the recipe for a perfect day out!

How about a Pokémon-friendly staycation? Yep, that’s a thing! Ovolo Southside are going all out and setting ‘Lures‘ between 2pm – 10pm everyday to attract Pokémon. They’ll also be setting up special charging zones complete with two-metre long Android and iPhone cables at the restaurant, CIRQLE, and rooftop bar, ABOVE… with a pretty epic view over Wong Chuk Hang, we can’t think of a more picturesque place to catch ’em all! While you’re there, try out one of their five Pokémon–themed cocktails, and if you prove you’ve caught your first 15 Pokémon you’ll also get 30% off your first drinks and 15% off dining at CIRQLE!
And that’s not all – for diehard fans, the first 20 people to catch 50 Pokémon will receive a complimentary night when they book one night at Ovolo Southside, including a free upgrade and welcome Pokémon cocktail. The first player to catch all 142 Pokémon and take a pic of themselves at the hotel will WIN a 3–Day, 2-Night stay at the Long Loft Suite, as well as Apple Store credit for 5,200 Pokecoins. Now that girls, is dedication to Pokémon.
