When it comes to summer entertainment, DB really has got it all. From delicious dining offerings to super-fun beach games – whatever you’re into, DB is the place to be!
This year, the fun factor is higher than ever, with the Funtastic Summer games festival on Tai Pak Wan. Running until August 12, the festival is open from 11am to 6pm every day and features a number of exciting game booths and inflatable games, including giant water walkers, paddle boats and a thrilling dinosaur slide – all free of charge. And at weekends, the fun doubles, with carnival activities also taking place at DB North Plaza.
Of course, with so much going on around town, you’re bound to work up an appetite, and DB’s many F&B outlets are ready to help you refuel, including the town’s newest offering, Starbucks. Located in DB North Plaza, the large, airy restaurant serves up a wide range of hot and cold drinks, with food options including delicious sandwiches, salads and, of course, yummy sweet treats!’
“Starbucks continually strives to offer the world’s best coffee and create the finest coffee experience,” says a company representative. “Residents and visitors at Discovery Bay can expect the same exceptional beverage innovation and craft in this store, including Starbucks’ signature coffee beverages, a modern tea experience with the Teavana™ range, creative frappuccino blended beverages and delicious food options to cater to different needs.
“This summer, we’re also introducing the 14-hour slowsteeped Starbucks Cold Brew, offering customers a smooth and refreshing beverage to enjoy in the sizzling summer, as well as the delightful Milk Tea Panna Cotta Frappuccino and Pistachio Bon Bon Frappuccino.”
Also new at DB North is TigerLily, the latest restaurant from Castelo Concepts. “TigerLily is an Asian-inspired restaurant featuring dishes from all over the region, as well as a few western classics to ensure everybody is catered for,” explains Matthew Wilcock, general manager of the group’s DB outlets.
“We’re getting great feedback from customers so far, particularly on our sharing plates. Happy hour is popular too, and we’re looking forward to launching a second menu this summer.”
Another great summer dining option is Cafe bord de Mer & Lounge, at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong. This year, the sumptuous Summer Buffet runs until September 2 and costs just HK$348 for lunch and HK$428 for dinner. And for those with a sweet tooth, the Summer Afternoon Tea set comes in at a very reasonable HK$398 for two.
Elsewhere in DB, foodies can also enjoy the Peking duck at Peony from Discovery Bay Recreation Club – a must for meat lovers. BBQ summer packages and 12 choices of Asian temptations are on offer at Club Siena, so head along to gaze at the view from the balcony while you enjoy a sundowner or two.
All in all, it’s shaping up to be a funtastic summer in DB!
