It’s a quiet month in Hong Kong, but there’s still plenty to do – if you know where to look.
Hong Kong has taken a hit this month, there’s no doubt about that. Some of the city’s favourite events, like Art Basel, Art Central, the Hong Kong International Film Festival and Sonar have been either cancelled or postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. But fear not, there are still some incredible, can’t-miss events happening.
Read on to find the best things happening around Hong Kong this March, and make sure to tag us in your photos with #LKF and #LanKwaiFong.
All Starz on Me!
Paging all hip-hop lovers: you’re needed at SkyDeck. On 7 March, 2020 this sky-high rooftop bar is hosting a hip-hop night like no other. DJ Seth Gutierrez is going to be on the decks, supported by resident DJ Funky. Together they’ll be spinning all the old and new school tracks you love, while you dance the night away with 270-degree view of the Hong Kong skyline, mountains and Victoria Harbour. The party goes well into the next morning, so don’t plan any hikes for Sunday…
All Starz on Me! is happening at SkyDeck on 7 March, 2020 from 10:30pm – 2am. Reserve your spot at [email protected].

TATE Dining Room International Women’s Day
You’ve heard of four hands dinners (and even eight!) but what about a 16 hands dinner? For one night only, that’s exactly what you get at TATE Dining Room—and it’s all in the name of charity. The one-Michelin-starred restaurant by Vicky Lau is putting on an empowering event with Hong Kong’s female culinary icons. Each dish will recreate a memory from their childhood, and all proceeds will be donated to the BEYOND Foundation, which works to make Hong Kong a better place for children with special needs. To find out more about the event and the guest-chefs, check out their event here.
Tickets for the eight-course International Women’s Day Dinner are HK$1,780 per person (+10%). An optional wine pairing is available for an additional HK$480.

Green Day Live in Hong Kong (Postponed)
Calling all ‘90s kids – Green Day is coming to the 852. The geniuses that gave every angsty teen an anthem, whether it was Basket Case, Boulevard of Broken Dreams or American Idiot, are touring for their 13th studio album, “Father of All…”. They’re performing in Singapore before they come to Hong Kong, so you’ve got some time to buy the new album and memorise all their new stuff (but we’ve got fingers crossed that they play some of the classics!).

Taste Hong Kong
Taste of Hong Kong turns five this year, and you don’t want to miss it. Though the festival has yet to be confirmed, we’ve got high hopes for this one. After all, it’s a big anniversary! It’s essentially a playground for chefs and foodies, so come with an open mind and a lot of cash. Dishes start at HK$50, and each restaurant will offer a choice of four options. They’ll usually serve a few classics, which is a great opportunity to sample iconic dishes you might not always be able to afford. But perhaps more excitingly, each restaurant also features at least one Taste Festival Exclusive and one limited edition ‘Icon Dish’. Keep an eye on their Instagram for more information @tasteofhongkong.
Taste of Hong Kong is tentatively scheduled for 21 – 24 March, 2020 at the Central Harbourfront Event Space.
Kick it Like A Tourist
Since we’ve all got a bit of extra time this month, why not be a tourist in your own city? See Hong Kong with fresh eyes on an evening ride across Victoria Harbour or hit up a rooftop bar to grab a drink and stand in awe of this magnificent city. If you’re in need of inspiration, check out our tried and tested favourite things to do in Hong Kong – we promise they’re all just as magical for residents as they are for visitors.
Marilyn Manson Live in Hong Kong 2020 (Cancelled)
You don’t need to have Sweet Dreams, my Disposable Teens (and adults), because Marilyn Manson is coming to Hong Kong. The King of Goth is performing his first-ever gig in Hong Kong, and it’s expected to be a night to remember. After all, if there’s one thing Manson is known for, it’s stage antics. The iconic performer is coming straight form Ozzy Osbourne’s European tour, so you know he’s going to have some wild things planned. Tickets are available now, if you dare.
