Restaurants Pop up restaurant Exchange Square, Central

Hidden inside another restaurant, Shanghai Garden in Exchange Square, 888 Fatfatfat will serve dishes that explore regional Chinese food through modern eyes, while also offering a noodle bar (dishes start from $138) for lunch and unique dining experience for dinner.

To enter the restaurant, a lady dressed in white will lead you inside, where fun games have been planned to help break the ice. First up, a golden button on the table that says ‘不醉無歸’ (which literally translates to ‘you can’t go home until you’re drunk!’) urges you to opt for free-flow red or white wine ($328), while other activities based on Chinese traditions such as ‘kau chim’, a fortune-telling practice, and an antique abacus, will test your knowledge on Chinese culture.

From London to Hong Kong, contemporary art space and collaborative platform Schoeni Projects brings disConnect HK, an expanded adaptation of disConnect LDN, where a set of site-specific works from 10 artists across seven countries were presented inside a stunning 1850s Victorian townhouse in South West London. 

Taking over a historic 1950s tenement building in the heart of Causeway Bay, disConnect HK presents an awe-inspiring array of artworks from the London exhibition, and continues the disConnect 'journey' with the addition of new works from four Hong Kong artists which will include a live painting performance art, a video installation, a mixed-media installation, and a display of sculptures.

Fans of Chiho Aoshima are in luck as the acclaimed Japanese artist brings an exciting selection of works to Perrotin Hong Kong! Even if you're not familiar with the name, we're sure you would be no stranger to the artist's wide-eyed avatar, Moimoi. Spirits, goddesses, nymphs, plants, and even buildings, Aoshima's fantastical images gives its audience a window into her imagination. For the exhibition, the gallery has transformed into an otherworldly land featuring digital animations, sculptures, and hand-painted works.

A Little Too Real: An Enchanted Dream by Vann

Art K11 Art Mall, Tsim Sha Tsui

Ever wondered what your living room would look like if you were – say, trippin' balls? Well, now you can find out exactly what that looks like, at chi K11 art space’s new surrealist exhibit, A Little Too Real: An Enchanted Dream by award-winning local jewellery designer Vann Kwok.

Divided into five experience zones, the exhibition will take viewers on a visual journey where reality appears distorted. Take a snap against the crystal-spangled shower curtains, stroll through a holographic 'rabbit hole', or hang out with a multi-coloured yeti on the sofa. Everything you can imagine comes to life as furniture morphs into art pieces, jewellery turns into furniture, and art pieces become jewellery. It's an otherworldly (and very much Instagrammable) experience you don't want to miss!
