With Road to Ultra Hong Kong and other music events just around the corner, June is going to be fueled by booze, comfort food and the occasional nap. From a jazzy lunch at The Fringe Club to a hip hop brunch at Los Sotano, Lan Kwai Fong is severing the best of both worlds all on one platter.
Road to Ultra Hong Kong
Finally, the Road to Ultra Hong Kong is back for its third edition. As the most popular electronic music festivals in Asia (and potentially the world), it draws in some time of the biggest names in the scene. With Axwell Λ Ingrosso, David Guetta and Fedde Le Grand spinning their latest tracks, we expect this year’s performances to be anything but ordinary. Keep an eye out for the after parties as you might spot a few of these legends in the streets and clubs of Lan Kwai Fong.
Road to Ultra Hong Kong takes place on 9 June at AsiaWorld-Expo. Tickets are available from HK$680 on hongkong.roadtoultra.com/tickets.

Free Flow Hip Hop Brunch Party at Los Sotano
Los Sotano is bringing the New York-style free-flow party brunch to Lan Kwai Fong. With three free-flow packages, there’s plenty to choose from to suit your boozing needs. If you’re new to boozy brunches, you might want to settle for ‘It’s Gucci’ (HK$495) — a menu with coronas, margaritas, mimosas and sparkling wine. Done it before? Step up your game with the ‘Get Wavy’ (HK$795) package, which includes draft beer, Perrier Jouet champagne, Avion Tequila shots and bad hombre cocktails.
For the true ballers amongst us, there’s the ‘Hennything is Possible’ menu (HK$1995). With Dom Perignon ‘09, Carlos Slim cocktails, Patron Anejo shots, Grey Goose and plenty of Hennessy VSOP, it’s the ultimate choice for all diehard boozers. Freight not, there will be unlimited street tacos and quesadillas with table side guacamole and churros to soak up all that alcohol. DJ D-Yeet and DJ RICHIEWILD will be playing the best hip hop tunes so you better get ready for the brunch of your life!
Los Sotano’s Hip Hop Party Brunch will take place on 2 June. Get your tickets on eventbrite.hk
