Party gals not yet ready to retire their festive frocks are in luck. The only ladies' night in town that boasts a commanding view of the finish line is under starting orders for the new year and is happening this week. Launched in November, Ladesirous takes place on the first Wednesday of each month during the horse-racing season, from 7.30pm to 11.30pm, at Adrenaline (below), the Jockey Club's swanky double-level bar and lounge at the Happy Valley track. As well as free admission (it's HK$180 for the gents before 9.30pm), ladies can take advantage of a mini-manicure station, pick from a complimentary buffet of tapas and follow the action from the spacious balcony. The usual best-dressed competition has been replaced this week by two Agnes b. Delices chocolate-making demonstrations; one for early birds at 6.15pm and another at 8.45pm. A counter will be set up for customers to taste the chocolate and there will be a game: guess the weight of a custom-made chocolate horse. A prize will be given to the person whose guess is the closest. Walk-ins are welcome but, according to Adrenaline staff, Ladesirous tables are in demand, so booking would be a good idea. A table of four requires a minimum spend of HK$1,400 and for six to eight, HK$2,000 - so you might want to bring a sugar daddy or two to cover the bubbly. There's no reason to stop having fun just because New Year's Eve is behind us. Adrenaline is at 2/F-3/F, Pavilion Stand, Wong Nai Chung Road, Happy Valley, tel: 3690 3690; www.hkadrenaline.com .
