Art Basel – 21-22 March, 2017


There’s a lot to see at this year’s Art Basel, but there’s also a lot to do with conversations, trams and films to fit in as you explore the wide range of art on show.

All art ‘speaks’ to each of us in different ways, you can admire the skill (or not) of an artist but find their work does nothing for you. So rather than suggesting not to miss ‘x’ or ‘y’, bc recommends that you explore and find those works that speak or connect to you in some way. Enjoy them, then wander away for awhile and come back again later. Was the work just flirting with you the first time, or do you still feel the piece’s attraction…?

Aperitivo at Attire House – 14 March, 2017


One of the joys of living in Hong Kong is that she’s always full of surprises. Take for example 8 Wyndham Street as boring an office block as you can find – but on the top floor (29/F) is the recently opened Attire House, a men’s boutique complete with Barber’s Shop and wet shave, and Bar de Lune a very relaxed Japanese whisky and cocktail bar. Bar de Luxe is a joint venture between the owners of Attire and Tokyo’s famous mixologist Hidetsugu Ueno.

To introduce the brands Cesare Attolini and E Marinella Attire House hosted an aperitivo with cocktails and Tartuflanghe truffle chips.

Braids @ Hidden Agenda – 7 March, 2017


Wonderful gig from Braids at Hidden Agenda last night, supported by local three piece So It Goes. Although a couple of aggressive Lands Department and FEHD staff tried to spoil everyones enjoyment.
The hour long show featured several new songs and including an interesting one on selfies. You know a gig is good when suddenly the band announce the last song and you wonder where did the time go, we wanted more… Until next time, unless you want to head over to Macau tonight or Shenzhen to catch the current tour.
