Hyde and Go Strip

Let’s play a little game.  Start on Lyndhurst Terrace, currently your go-to spot solely for the bank, bagels and coffee. Now close your eyes, (no peeking!), count down from ten, and go look for what’s new on the scene…

Your summer holiday has seen you flitting between Lily Pond in the Hamptons, Pacha in Ibiza and Les Caves Du Roy in St. Tropez.  But just because the close of summer is near doesn’t mean the party has to come to an end.  Just in time to welcome you home, Hyde, HK’s newest member’s club and lounge will be opening its doors.  The twelve thousand square foot duplex space has been styled as an urban New York loft, and is home to a full-scale nightclub as well as a swanky bar and lounge.  Day will roll into night in Hyde Lounge on the 3rd floor as recklessly long lunches lead to countless games of pool followed by hours spent with cocktails shooting the breeze on one of the three open-air terraces.  While night will roll into day in the 2nd floor Club where house DJs Robin, Ulysses and Doze with be joined by international stars, taking dance floor mania to new heights in HK with two oversize LED screens showcasing kicking videos and art projections to complement the stellar sounds. A redeemable annual membership fee of HK$18,000 will afford you F & B credit for the full amount, access to a private lift, members only VIP section and exclusive wine cellars and bar, plus, complimentary pool-play and a few welcome bottles of Moet.  Opening day is September 2nd, so that should give you a couple of days to recover from the summer’s antics and get off your…hide!

A perfectly shaken martini, a fresh off the press issue of Vanity Fair, a late breakfast in bed with your hottie du jour…there are certain things you just can’t help lingering over.  While others in fact, like your monthly bikini wax, you’d prefer to have done in a flash.   Say hello to STRIP: Ministry of Waxing, the globally acclaimed waxing institution which has just opened its doors in Hong Kong and guarantees you’ll be set for Sao Paolo in 15 minutes flat.  Already making waves in Singapore, London, and New York, STRIP brings its famous Berry Chocolate Wax and almost pain free technique to HK’s bikini babes (and boys!) this month.  Local waxperts aka striperellas were sent to Singapore on an intense 1-month training program to learn STRIP’s unique method and mantras and are ready to calm even the most fearful Brazilian virgins with hilarious STRIP books and the company’s monkey mascot squeeze toys. This 3-floor den of hip urban spa style also sells its signature pre-and-post wax care products like Peppermint Body Scrub and Ice Cream (not I Scream!) soothing care as well as exclusive international cult product lines including the full range of Malin + Goetz. The walls are adorned with a collection of modern wax paintings, hand created by one of the directors for each of the 27 locations, while surrounding signs remind guests they are in good hands with statements like ‘over 2 million bushes pruned’.  STRIP’s eyebrow-tastic sister spa Browhaus is set to open in September. But before then you are invited to take advantage of special 50% off promos on Brazilians for first time visitors until August 31.  Hey, with the fab products, ambience and service at STRIP, you may even want to linger there for a little while after all!
