Monday may be blue to many, but definitely not WOOBAR!
Featuring 5 extraordinary brands in a W-inspired “Enchanted Forest” setting, the lively bar will transform into an urban jungle every other Monday evening starting from November 23rd, with new culinary delights and whimsical drinks to jazz up the night. Tastemakers who make a purchase of over HK3,500 can even take home a limited edition W CD specially mixed by W Music Curator, Arun R. Monday nights just can’t get any better!
“W Hong Kong has always been driven to deliver what’s new/next in the city, and we bring this spirit to WOOBAR by redefining Monday nights to give people new reasons to celebrate the start of the week,” said Peter Hildebrand, General Manager of W Hong Kong. “We are very pleased and honored to find so many like-minded partners to work with, offering guests a fun and stylish break to erase the blues.”
Not those shops you see a lot on the streets, the W has called in highly individualistic lifestyle and fashion brands that house exceptional clothes, accessories, handbags or more to join the team, providing the city’s shakers and movers a diverse and high-quality selection to shop from.
URBAN FOREST SETTING
Design has always been a strong passion point of W Hong Kong. So the artistic hotel invited GAA Design Farm from Italy to design exclusive display sets to showcase each shop’s merchandise in full glory. Taking inspiration from the hotel’s design narrative “Enchanted Forest”, the artists created a series of grainy blocks as well as large and willowy hangers to artistically symbolize rocks and trees in the forest, forming an ethereal landscape and space for appreciation. The grey, black and silver color palette adds an urban touch to the whole experience,
making it the perfect backdrop to such evenings.
TEMPTING TREATS & DRINKS
If you think the night is all about shopping, you are wrong – it is much more than that! WOOBAR teases your senses even further with its launch of over 20 new dishes and 30 cocktails to celebrate the debut of this program and to give you an all-rounded experience. Highlights include:
Chicken Lollipop: This delightful snack is a delicious combination of ground chicken skewers and crunchy satay sauce. It will surely come in handy for those who are set to shop till you drop.
Smoked Salmon Tartine: Re-energize yourself after all the shopping with this tasty open face sandwich that places smoked salmon, herbs cream cheese, lemon zest on organic and freshly baked bread.
W Chocolate Caramel Fondant: End your night on a sweet note with this dessert which is made of warm heart liquid, caramel chocolate jelly and lemon sorbet.
Tonga’s Passion Cocktail: With the madderto darado dark rum and dolin blanc vermouth as its base, this cocktail has a strong and woody flavor. The bits of passion fruit, lemon juice, pineapple juice and sugar syrup added afterwards make it fuller in taste.
Demonio Rogo Cocktail: A wonderful example of merging contemporary twists with classic cocktails, this innovative concoction offers a sweet and fruity flavor from the mixture of blueberry, grapefruit and lime juices on top of its alto del Carmen pisco base.
BUMPING BEATS AND COVER STAR
How can there be no music for such a night?
W Hong Kong’s W Music Curator, Arun R, has specially compiled a list of tracks that will keep the floor pumping with energy. You can even experience being a cover star at the photoshoot booth!
If you make a purchase of over HK$3,500 in total (including drinks, food and shop merchandise), you can take home a W CD of the tracks for free by showing your receipt upon your leave!
With one-of-a-kind fashion, otherworldly design display, sumptuous food and drinks, and energetic tunes, expect to be taken on an enchanted journey of sights, sounds and sensations every other Monday night.
