Put simply, ‘Book Club’ can best be described as a code word women use to get together, have a drink (possibly drinks), share a story or two and generally unwind from the week that was.
Think of it as an event eagerly anticipated by women the world over, and for the unrequited, the discussion goes something like this…
Woman 1: I’m so glad we have book club tonight. I’ve had a bad day and a long week.
Woman 2: Yep, me too. I’ll see you at the bar at 6.
Our take on ‘Book Club’ references this ingrained practice, and throws into the mix fantastic drinks, live acoustic music and a side order of dim sum if you’re so inclined.
Not just for the women, Old Bailey’s ‘Book Club’ is open to all and features a line of well priced drinks for those seeking a Happy Hour in Tai Kwun, and Hong Kong’s central.
