To celebrate the start of the Year of the Rat, Regent Street has a wealth of special activities and in-store treats for you to enjoy. From quirky cartoon collaborations, to an indulgent afternoon tea, and a relaxing sound bath, we’ve curated an edit of the best in-store that is not to be missed. Read on to find out more:
Lunar New Year Afternoon Tea at Thomas’s Café, Burberry
Check out Burberry’s vibrant Chinese New Year collection before visiting Thomas’s Café at Burberry, where you can enjoy a sweet treat with loved ones. The Lunar New Year inspired afternoon tea includes Jasmine tea meringue, rose water cranberry compote topped with Dragons Beard candy and a New Year Red Fondant Fancy. Equally tempting is the Lychee and Matcha Tea Cake, Nian Gao sweet rice cake and the Pandan macaroon. We recommend booking a space here.
lululemon’s Lunar New Year Sound Bath
Focusing on renewal, resourcefulness and manifesting abundance, as part of the Year of the Rat, lululemon’s Regent Street store will be hosting sound alchemist Malbert Lee on the 25th January to lead an intention-setting sound bath. Malbert will help you de-stress by offering sound healing with the gong and singing bowls. Join him on the wellness sound journey here.
lululemon’s Lunar New Year’s Rat Race
An invite-only 3km loop around Chinatown on 2nd February at 10.45am. Sign up to join two local Chinese run clubs in celebrating Lunar New Year and after your run, visit the Regent Street store to enjoy dumplings and bubble tea in ‘the base’ – lululemon’s community space. You’ll even be treated to a cookery demonstration so you can continue the festivities at home. Sign up here using password: LNY
Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill Moon Cakes
A special experience for those in the know; book a table for Saturday 25th January using the code CNY20 and receive a complimentary moon cake if you order two or more items from the a la carte menu.
Kate Spade New York
Kate Spade New York has teamed up with iconic cartoon Tom & Jerry to create a collection that features an adorable motif of the series' famed mouse. Whether it’s choosing a playful new handbag, wallet, piece of costume jewellery or cold-weather-friendly sweater from the new collection, we say why not mark the Year of the Rat with a new accessory, especially one featuring Jerry posing with a wedge of cheese.
Jo Malone London
Looking for a golden gift idea? Jo Malone London’s Regent Street boutique will be home to a limited-edition English Pear & Freesia Cologne, topped with gold and finished in a limited-edition design to celebrate Lunar New Year. It’s the perfect gift to share with a special someone.
To mark the Lunar New Year, BOSS has created an exclusive collection that embodies classic styles and signature colour-ways to honour the occasion. BOSS Regent Street store will also offer a special red packet gift with any purchase from the striking collection until the 10th February.
