HAPPENINGS HONG KONG SPOTLIGHT Gastronomic Art Vicky Lau has carved a reputation for serving beautifully presented edible stories at the well-established Tate Dining Room & Bar. The professionally trained graphic-designer-turnedchef has clearly meshed her two talents together as Tate has consistently brought diners on a journey of discovery through food. Established in 2012 in Soho, Elgin Street, Tate now calls Hollywood Road its home. The new facility now incorporates a dining room with space for 30, as well as a private chef’s kitchen and a private bar. The outlet prides itself on its French and Asian Cuisine, all of which are presented intricately on a plate. Dining at Tate is best described as a full-on sensory experience, with dishes that deliver both visual and gustatory simulation. Intimate and personal, Tate opens only for dinner with seasonal tasting menus on offer along with a carefully selected wine list. 210 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, +852 2555 2172, GIN THERAPY Despite taking a whimsical approach to cocktails – specifically gin-based drinks – Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour is serious about its staple beverage. The speakeasy outlet celebrates gin, evident by over 250 varieties and brands housed in their outlet. On the official website, the outlet is said to specialise in treating “patients’ ailments, and stress-related symptoms with concoctions of fresh, local herbs and botanicals – paired with gins from around the world”. That is certainly evident by its menu, which is populated by creative concoctions, expertly made in-house by resident mixologists. The outlet itself is conducive for enjoying a tipple or two, thanks to its stylised interior that is inspired by a vintage apothecary. With its wooden décor, retro wallpaper and ingredients housed in glass jars, Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour certainly provides the ideal setting to throw back a gin or two in the evening, or even in the afternoon. Shop B31A, First Basement Fl., Landmark Atrium, 15 Queen’s Road, SPOTLIGHT Bear Witness With over 12 million albums sold, Katy Perry is an artist that needs no introduction. Famous for her hit singles “Roar”, “Firework” and “Dark Horse”, Perry is an icon of American music, despite only making her debut just a decade ago. In March, Perry will be bringing her brand of music and entertainment to Hong Kong as part of her world tour. Fresh off her North American leg, Perry’s WITNESS: The Tour will set the stage for the artist’s highly-anticipated debut performance in Hong Kong. Her sold-out performances in America have thus far garnered rave reviews for its enormous, colourful sets with eye-popping props. Hop on board WITNESS: The Tour for an entertaining journey through Katy Perry’s biggest milestones and mega-hits. 30 March, AsiaWorld-Expo, Arena, ATTENTION ON DECKS Technology meets music in Sónar, one of the world’s biggest electronic music events.
