The Aubrey After Dark: Redefining Luxury Nightlife at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

The Aubrey After Dark: Redefining Luxury Nightlife at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

As part of the celebrations of its 60th anniversary, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong introduces "The Aubrey After Dark", a new luxury nightlife series created in collaboration with local and international nightlife visionaries. "The Aubrey After Dark" pays homage to the beginnings of Hong Kong's nightlife which emerged around the same time as the opening of The Mandarin in 1963, marking a parallel ascent into global prominence.

This ambitious project brings together Hong Kong's own Andrew Bull, aka DJ El Toro, a legend with over 50 years on the decks, Marina Bullivant, a café-society powerhouse with deep roots in hospitality and club management, and Cosmo Webber, a trailblazer from London's contemporary party circuit, as The Aubrey's first curator-in-residence.

"We are excited to launch this special nightlife experience in such an elegant yet edgy venue. This series is not just about entertainment, it's about bringing back the "Hong Kong Mojo", to rekindle the dynamic energy and charm of Hong Kong that we all know and love!" shares Bullivant.

The vision for "The Aubrey After Dark" encompasses a curated series of Friday night events that seamlessly blend soulful house and disco with innovative sounds from the underground scenes of London, New York, and Paris. 

Each week, international DJs will be paired with local talent, allowing guests at The Aubrey to experience a mix of Classic Disco and Chicago House enriched with new music genres like Amapiano, complemented by the latest Afro and Latin vibes. This initiative consistently bridges the gap between contemporary sounds and the timeless grooves that have shaped music history.
