What´s up Hong Kong – week 52
Visit Aberdeen Street Social or Mandarin Oriental for special Christmas dinning.
Aberdeen Street Social
When: Until Dec 31
Where: 35 Aberdeen Street, Central
What? Excited to share the festive cheer this December? Then Aberdeen Street Social is the place to be. With their dish-y array of Christmas offers for guests to enjoy from complimentary mulled wine spiced to perfection by Bar Manager Neil Rivington to their Christmas social lunch that features classics such as Home smoked salmon, Ham Hock and savoy cabbage, Jason Atherton’s has excelled himself, going full out festive this Christmas. There’ll be Christmas dinners on the 24th and 25th at $288 and festive party menus for guests to check out.

When: Until Nov 26
Where: Mandarin Oriental, 5 Connaught Rd, Central
What? The elves might have been busy making presents, but the Mandarin Oriental is the one baking turkeys to perfection. From free-range birds that are all leg to butterballs that are pumped full of chemicals, finding the right bird for Christmas Day is a total nightmare in Hong Kong (trust me I know!). So while expensive at $2,088, the Mandarin Oriental’s turkey feast, guarantees you the stress-less yet mouth-wateringly successful Christmas dinner that everyone will enjoy.

When: 18-20 Dec, 22-26 Dec
Where: Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre, TST
What: Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without some form of nutcracker. And what better way to get into the festive spirit than dancing your way out of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre after listening to Tchaikovsky and watching the beautiful pirouettes of the Sugar Plum Fairy. If you haven’t been before, join Clara on her magical snowflake filled adventure, this year, and check out a Hong Kong tradition that never gets old. Tickets from $180.

When: Every Saturday
Where: 52-56 Staunton St, Soho, Central
What: Around the world in eight drinks. That’s what one evening in Soho can feel like. And at Stazione Novella – a wine bar nestled on the corner of Staunton and Aberdeen Street in Soho – visitors can take a trip around Italy too, with their recently launched Saturday night wine tastings. Named after the notorious Florentine station surrounded by bars and restaurants, Stazione Novella will be treating guests to their finest selection of Italian wines and a fantastic spread of Italian food too.

When: 9-28 Dec
Where: Open Piazza, Hong Kong Cultural Centre, 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
What: Produced by Spinifex Group (an Australian production team), the Hong Kong Pulse 3D Light Show promises to be strikingly unique and breathtakingly visual. In the Open Piazza in Tsim Sha Tsui a visual display of Hong Kong through the years will be projected onto the Cultural Centre and Clock Tower to showcase the vibrancy of our urban metropolis.
