Sundays will never be the same again, beginning this WKND at a new brunch.booze.chillout. session that is being kicked off at URBN Hotel‘s new beergrdn. You don’t need a hotel room key, you can come check it out for the first time and get your laid back Sunday afternoon booze on.
They’re spending a gazillion RMB on the space. We took a quick peek, and even though it’s not quite finished it looks quite impressive. In addition to a slew of retro video game machines, there’s a number of beer stars on the menu — 50 international bottled beers, 8 brews on tap, and as per the release: “Two custom-made proprietary beers with a local brew master: an American wheat, ‘Big Busty Wheat,’ and IPA brew ‘Shangh-IPA, with more signature craft beers to come.”
Also, food. David Laris is launching this place. He’s the British restauranteur of renown, with a long Shanghai ((“Laris” at 3 on the Bund, Slice, Fat Olive, etc.). As such, food is pretty much a lock. For this Sunday, they recommend Arugula Pizza at 75 RMB. “A few choice slices of acorn fed prosciutto, tomato sauce, and arugala? Yup.
The soft opening is this Sunday 2-7 pm for a new weekly event called WKND. There will be free Vedett Beer until the keg runs out, and DJ B.O on the decks. Why deal with Saturday night’s hangover when you can extend your buzz to Sunday night?
