Good morning Shanghai, here’s your wakeup call: Pencil This In is all the things you’d want to do this Monday through Thursday. “Enjoy” free margaritas at Zapatas on Monday night, and drop by Dada for even more freebies on Tuesday. Nope, no drinks, we are talking about the staple Sub-Cinema event, of course. It’s also time to pay Lune a visit if you haven’t already done so in 2013. On Thursday night, there’s a double goodie exclusively for the girls: Free cocktails at Bar Rouge (plus free entrance with password), and the chance to grab a Louis Vuitton bag. Yay…? Read on for all the details, or check out our calendar for more!
Monday Mash-Up @ Zapatas
Is it trashy? Yeah, but we will still come back in 2013, and here’s why: Noisy party music, busy crowd, and free flow beer and margaritas from 10-11pm. Zapatas is the one and only place in Shanghai that brought to perfection what I’d refer to as serving cheap margaritas “McDonald’s style”: Big slush machines filled up with the yellow poison wait for you. Gross pleasure.
Free flow beer & margaritas 10-11pm // Zapatas // 5 Hengshan Lu, near Dongping Lu (衡山路5号, 近东平路)
Sub-Cinema: El día de la bestia @ DADA
Sub-Cinema is back from the undeath, this week with the celebrated, successful Spanish flic ‘El día de la bestia’:
“A basque priest finds by means of a cabalistic study of the bible that the anti-christ is going to be born on Christmas day in Madrid. Helped by a heavy-metal fan and by the showman of a TV esoteric program, he will try to invoke the devil to find out the place of birth and kill the baby.” (IMDb) As usual, free entrance and free pop corn with every drink.
Free // Doors at 8pm, movie at 9pm // Dada // No. 115 Xingfu Lu, near Fahuazhen Lu (幸福路115号, 近法华镇路)
HOUSE FÜR ALLE @ LUNE
New year, same
old newish weekly party at Lune: Don’t forget the Wednesday house night with resident DJ Ben Thriller. Shanghai’s local top house DJs are expected to show up on rotation: Ben Huang, Raz, Lindberg, Wood, Crispy, Skinny Babou, Martin Texier and more. As usual, drinks are reasonably priced with beer from 25, plus 2 for 1 on selected drinks until 12.
Free // 9pm // Lune // 4F, No. 218 Xinle Lu, cross Donghu Lu (新乐路218号, 东湖路路口)
Girls Night Out: LV @ Bar Rouge
I think we can argue whether Louis Vuitton really is the quintessence of “French Haute Couture”, but there’s no doubt the leather bags have their fans. So girls, get in for free with the password “MVP”, enjoy free cocktails from 9:30-11:30pm, and get the chance to win a Louis Vuitton bag! Doesn’t hurt to try, right?
Free entrance till 00:30 with password “MVP” // Bar Rouge // 7/F, 18 Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu, near Nanjing Dong Lu (中山东一路18号7楼, 近南京东路)
