Happy French Wednesday
“Happy Hong Kong” is on, we’ve heard. And we couldn’t be happier indeed to join the party.

You can look forward to gourmet bites including Provencal beef stew and macaroons, wines from Bordeaux and Provence as well as live music, dance performances and more.

Happy French Wednesday
Let’s meet at the Beer Garden, a space featuring mini replicas of Paris’ landmarks – cue Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, to kick start the celebrities together, shall we? 
Romance is on the menu on Wednesday 3 May, and La Vie en Rose will be the theme of the evening. A live band led by Sabra will be playing iconic French hits spanning the decades. You can even expect to be transported to Versailles for a short while with performers dressed in traditional costumes recreating the palace’s infamous – and notoriously hard to get in, masquerade balls. 
On Wednesday 17 May, you’re invited to enjoy French Street Festivals vibes. You’re guaranteed an evening filled with fun as you dance to the tunes of Le Groupe Electrogene Fanfare Club – the most famous French marching band in town. Street artists, mimes, jugglers, and other performers are also expected to join the party. 
On 24 and 31 May, you’ll travel to the Heart of Montmartre. One of Paris’ most vibrant districts, Montmartre is home to the worldwide famous Moulin Rouge, and you can look forward to French Cancan performances and marvellous musical showcases by Murphy's Law.  
So, who’s joining us for a dose of French happiness?
