Sneak Preview! HK LUXE City Guides

Hot off the press! The newest editions of the much-adored LUXE City Guides and Little LUXE Guides for Hong Kong are now exclusively available at www.luxecityguides.com and hitting bookshelves just in time for the holidays.  Exclusively from the ultra plugged-in editors of LUXE, we bring you a sneak preview of the newest cool kids on the block, that made it into the final cut…

RESTAURANTS
Catalunya
With an elBulli alum behind the stoves, traditional Catalan tapas, luscious cocktails and table-side theatrics, this sultry Spanish siren has made fast fans in Hong Kong. (G/F, Guardian House, 32 Oi Kwan Road, Wan Chai, www.catalunya.hk)

Sijie
The surrounds may be humble, but this unassuming 10th floor dining room is one sizzling, saucy, Sichuan taste-bomb. (10/F, Bartlock Centre. 3 Yiu Wa St, Causeway Bay, 2802 2250)

BARS
Duddell’s
Bi-level glama-mama fusing gallery looks with top dim sum and a kick-ass alfresco terrace dressed in twinkly lights and pretty peeps. (3-4/F / Shanghai Tang Mansion, 1 Duddell St, Central, duddells.com)

Il Milione
It’s named for a C.13th travelogue based on the stories of Marco Polo, but the adventurous protagonist of this seductive imbiber is Giancarlo Mancino of Mancino Vermouth fame – and his Negronis will have you weak at the knees! (G/F, Hutchison House, 10 Harcourt Road, Central, www.il-milione.com)

SHOPS
Bowerbird
Feather your nest with Bowerbird’s French provincial, Chinoiserie and Hamptons-inspired furniture with a (naturally) generous helping of blue. (2/F, 2 Lee Lok Street, Ap Lei Chau, www.bowerbird-home.com)

Mayarya
Concept maternity shop with branches in so-hot-right-now Sheung Wan or go-to-shopping-spot Stanley, with a roster of top international designers plus V.I.M (Very Important Mamas) car service. Simply pop in during normal opening hours or give them a call to arrange early or after hours shopping. (26 Jervois Street / Sheung Wan, Shop 104 / Stanley Plaza / Stanley, www.mayarya.com)
