Aperitivo Alla Milanese

ONCE UPON A TABLE presents 'Aperitivo alla Milanese' on Saturday April 28. Bookings open at 3 pm tomorrow Thursday April 19


For our next event, we are celebrating the celebrated Milanese ritual and long-held social tradition: the Aperitivo.

As night falls in Milan, the locals hit the bars. Sometime after 5 p.m , the Milanese start filing into their neighbourhood watering holes in search of drinks and nibbles. They elbow their way to the bar and join in the most alluring pre-dinner scene anywhere in the world.

Colourful ( and potent ) Campari cocktails on ice, flowing Prosecco and other sparkling drinks laced with digestivi, accompanied by buffet of bar snacks: hand-sliced salumi and cheeses, crostinis smeared with anchovies and lardo and roasted veggies, freshly flipped omelettes, arancini and olives with vinegars and olive oil, even heaping bowls of polenta and ragu ... the Milanese bars pull out all the stops for the fashionistas and oh-so-stylish denizens of the city.

We love this Milanese ritual and will bring it to Hong Kong on Saturday, April 28 at ONCE UPON A TABLE but of course we will add our own gourmet twists. The bar table will heave with classic and contemporary Aperitivo and the drinks will flow. And this being a nod to Milan, we will serve up some fashionable surprises. See you there !

Date: Saturday April 28, 5 pm to 9 pm Dress code: Chic ( big dark sunglasses optional )Bookings open Thursday April 19th at 3 pm. ( be sure to be quick, as we usually sell out very fast
