Hip Hop

Every other weekend, hip hop can be heard pulsating from the hottest clubs in the city right through till the break of dawn. This weekend, however, the most happening hipping and hopping will be taking place well before the nighttime hours…Don your fluffiest bunny tail and perkiest ears and bring along a basket (or a Chanel tote) big enough to hold a dozen Easter eggs, it’s time to get hopping!

Get the family spruced up in their “Sunday Best” for an Easter to remember. From movies and popcorn to Easter egg hunts and a special kids buffet, Amber is set to be a fun-filled Easter paradise for the kids this weekend. Adults are in for a treat too with a sumptuous 5-course lunch paired with wines and champagne. (HK$648/adult, HK$288/child, April 11 &12 lunch only, 2132 0066)

Mandarin Oriental
When you’re under 10-years old, the only thing all year that comes close to Santa’s visit is a rendezvous with the Easter Bunny. And that’s just who you’ll find at the Mandarin Oriental’s special Easter Chocolate Afternoon Tea at the Clipper Lounge. Our big-eared, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed friend will be teaching the little ones how to paint eggs and distributing lots of heavenly chocolates. No wonder he’s so popular!
