Sundays will never be the same again, beginning TODAY, 2pm at a new brunch.booze.chillout. session that is being kicked off at URBN Hotel‘s new beergrdn. There’s a keg of beer sponsored by the wonderful guys at Vedett, and this will be flowing till it runs out, so you’ll want to be there early.
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. Try the Arugula Pizza at 75 RMB. “A few choice slices of acorn fed prosciutto, tomato sauce, and arugala? Yup.
Why deal with Saturday night’s hangover when you can extend your buzz to Sunday night?
