On Wednesday 23 April the Launchparty of TIme Out Magazine Hong Kong edition was held.

Time Out is quite famous in London for its magazine. The magazine contains listings of restaurants and activities happening in the area where it is published. Even so welknown for the travel magazines.

These days, it fortunately has a website as well, which for Hong Kong is http://www.timeout.com.hk/

A Magazine Launch for a hip magazine needs a good location...which was the newly opened "The Pawn" in Wanchai.

This bar, restaurant is build in the style of an old pawn shop and they have done an excellent job on keeping some old-style elements in there. Excellent parts are a roof-terrace and balconies where you can sit have a bite and a drink. High on my list of places to go for a drink, as it looks into the area of Wanchai that starts hustling and bustling. I will return especially for the massive whisky collection present.

Now the party itself was good. Obviously lots of media people and further all kinds of people that know how to have a good time. It was a strictly "invitation only" event.

There was a band playing with some good rock tunes. with some asian influences..ooops sorry.....forgot the name though.

Snacks and drinks were well present;;; more then glasses i think as after a while the champagne was served in wine glasses.

On evenings like this you run into all kinds of people, for example the managing director of Cafe O (www.cafeo.hk) who just came from an opening of another branch, or owner of FLORZ (www.florzs.com) who makes her own jewelry.

All together a good evening!
