Just the previous Sunday, I was trooping down Sai Ying Pun in search of my destination by following the noises “thump thump” from the music bass. Just around the corner, there are already numerous trendy looking groups of people with drinks in their hands, head bobbing with a smile. Instead of being greeted with a huge Adidas Do Over sign, it was a small hidden area with a small gate entrance, followed by heaps of people in the lineup. Much like an underground house party, the place was packed, heated with energy, with the great music that most of us were there for.
A great international crowd was present, going up and down the two floored interior where the party was held. Small stalls were set up for drinks, with a back opening to the outside for the crowd to get some air from the stuffed up area. There were no fancy decors, but everything was contained by the grooving crowd themselves, swaying away to the beats by the numerous DJ line up.
Seeing a few familiar faces, the gathering was very homey. Nevertheless bounded by concrete walls and an open staircase, everything seemed perfectly comfortable. To cater to the heat, the party offered free ice cream to guests which I missed out on and honestly regret. Hitting Asia this time from 12 to 10pm, this is one hell of a party we all would anticipate to happen again sometime soon. Better to wear my Adidas dance gears next time to join my fellow b- boys and dancers for another round of cypher next time!
