Keep your belly full when Rugby Sevens fever hits Hong Kong

Kicking off in less than two weeks, the Hong Kong Sevens will be a long weekend of sport, fancy dress and general debauchery. You’ll need to say satiated and focused during the three-day tournament (7–9 April 2017), so we’ve put together a list of the top spots to head to offering special Sevens promotions:


Discounts from French Creations


From now until 9 April 2017, download the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens app and use this to get 10% off all food and drink at any one of French Creations’ fab group of restaurants: Pastis, Le Boudoir, Saint-Germain, F.A.B, Metropolitain, Alchemy, Comptoir, Flying Pig Bistro, Eiffel Bistro and Quarter Master. Further discounts apply to those who have a Cathay Pacific boarding pass or HSBC credit card.

The Official Hong Kong Sevens After-Party

The Hong Kong Rugby Union and Lan Kwai Fong Association are putting on a Sevens after-party to beat the rest with a week-long street fest (3–9 April 2017, from 9pm till the wee hours). LKF will be transformed into Hong Kong Stadium with artificial grass and a marching band. There’ll be street food aplenty, loads of beer, games booths and fun photo opps.


Funky Stuff at Linguini Fini


From 10:30pm onwards on 7–9 April, Linguini Fini will be funking things up with funkadelic on the decks and staff suited up in 70s gear. A price tag of $250 per person gets free-flow Peroni beer, Prosecco and South Stand cocktails along with unlimited burger sliders, pizza, Buffalo wings, French fries and fried chicken. 70s fancy dress optional but encouraged.

Beef & Beer at Lily & Bloom

Beef + beef = a match made in seventh heaven (pun intended). From 7–9 April, Chef Chris Grare will be dishing out his Beef & Beer series based on five of the most popular HK Sevens teams. From Team USA comes a pairing of 10-ounce chargrilled rib-eye with seasonal veggies and steak sauce with Founders All Day IPA ($395) while the pairing of an eight-ounce tenderloin with truffle mash and rocket salad paired with Adams Southwold Jack Brand Dry Hopped Lager ($465) will do Team England proud. And for New Zealand’s mighty All Blacks? Slow-cooked beef cheek with smoked cauliflower purée and red wine jus fittingly matched with Yeastie Boys Pot Kettle Black ($325).

All about Prosecco at Posto Pubblico


On Saturday, 8 April for $129 a head, knock back free-flow Peroni and Prosecco from 10pm till late. If you come decked out in your best fancy dress, a complimentary serving of the restaurant’s to-die-for veal meatballs are yours for the taking.

Triple Happiness: Can You Kick It? Challenge at The Butchers Club Burger

Can you handle this Man v Food–style challenge? Throughout the month of April, in a nod to the protein-rich diets that are synonymous with pro rugby players and the spirit of excess associated with the tournament, this burger joint is putting diners’ face-stuffing skills to the test. The Triple Happiness meal set ($240; burger alone available à la carte for $200) consists of a gut-busting Triple Happiness burger (three Australian Angus beef patties loaded with cheese), duck-fat fries and a beer. If you’re willing and able to chow down the set in seven minutes or less, Butchers Club will pick up the tab.

82 Stanley Street, Central, 2347 0777

G/F, Westland Gardens, 12 Westlands Road, Quarry Bay, 2388 9644

Shop G34–35, G/F, K11, 18 Hanoi Road, TST, 2897 7522

Peroni + Dogs at Stone Nullah Tavern

Throughout the Sevens weekend (7–9 April), get your drink on with the Peroni bucket special: seven bottles of Peroni for $200. Late-night hot dogs, the quintessential sport food, are available for $50 a pop. Free pints will be gifted to those who come dressed to the nines (or sevens, shall we say).
