Finally here’s a living proof guide that Hong Kong IS a creative city. All you have to do is know where to look, and the Creative City map takes care of that!
The map celebrates the city’s creative community as well as Hong Kong itself. It was started from the perspective that Hong Kong already has what it takes to be a significant cultural capital, that it is more than its reputation as an international commercial centre.
We definitely agree and are very proud to be stocking the Creative City map at our outlets. They retail at $28 each. Come get yours now!

For those in the art industry, you will be pleased to know that we currently have in stock the very informative Orientations Magazine. If you haven’t picked one up yet, it is high time you added it to your monthly list of must-read publications!
They are available in both brunch clubs.
Published in Hong Kong and distributed worldwide, Orientations has been delighting collectors and connoisseurs of Asian art for forty years. Every issue is an authoritative source of information on the many and varied aspects of the arts of East Asia, the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia and provides invaluable insights into the international Asian art market, analyzing activities at major auctions in London, New York, Hong Kong, Beijing and other centres to reveal the latest price and collecting trends.
Orientations is unique in its presentation and is itself a collector’s item, with the quality of its content matched by the excellence of its design and production. `Perfect bound’ with a strong laminated cover, it is renowned for its superb full-colour reproductions. Orientations is a magazine that you will enjoy at your leisure, and that you will keep to read and refer to, again and again.
10th March, we catered for a wonderful charity event called “Pay It Forward”, organized by a couple Tim & Lisa, which raises funds for the Po Leung Kuk Charity in Hong Kong. We were very happy and proud to be given the opportunity to do our part to give back to the community by providing food for this party. Over 200 people showed up and Tim & Lisa managed to raise $140,000!
On Mar 11th, the very next day, we catered for the Artwalk 2009 event, if you haven’t been for an artwalk, you are definitely missing out on one of the most fun and interesting events in HK: A night of wine, food, art and charity! This year we catered for Edge Gallery in Causeway Bay, definitely a very ‘edgy’ gallery, hidden in a quiet little spot a stone’s throw from brunch club & supper, and the wonderful Cais Gallery, one of the newer galleries on Hollywood Road and just a very short walk down from brunch club on Peel Street. Definitely one of the events we look forward to sponsoring every year…

On 26th March we catered for the launching of Suixtil, a line of gentlemen’s apparel inspired by Escuderia Suixtil of the auto racing world of the 1940s and 50s. The launch turned out to be a very personal and distinctive affair, attended by distinguished guests, very apt and characteristic of the history and lineage of the Suixtil brand.
Sealey Brandt, the talented and warm photographer from Singapore will be coming up to Hong Kong again mid-May.
She’s organized a cocktail party at brunch club & supper on May 14th, 7.30pm for all her clients & friends. She has also extended this invitation to all brunch clubbers, because after all, don’t we all love cocktail parties?
Really hope you can make it, do feel free to bring your friends. We are all looking forward to meeting everyone and having another lovely evening of good food, wine and good conversation!
Venue: brunch club & supper: G/F 4 Sun Wui Road, Causeway Bay
Date: May 14th (Wed next week)
I really don’t know how Ms. Brandt gets her subjects to open up to her so wholly but her black & white portraits seem to convey so much emotion and character that it seems almost like you are getting to know and feel a person rather than just looking at them.
To fully understand what I mean, visit her show at the SOHO gallery on 64 Peel Street to see her magic. She’ll be in Hong Kong till March 22, you may just catch her in person if you come between 2-7pm. Alternatively, visit her website for more information about her and her passion.
If you’d like to preserve a moment in your life, go to Ms. Brandt as she captures them beautifully. She is based out of Singapore and makes 3-4 trips a year to Hong Kong. Working with film rather than digital photography, each shot is all the more important and in the moment.
Her photographs make the perfect gift for your loved ones especially on occasions such as anniversaries, births and Christmas and definitely something to think about for Mother’s Day!
