Organizing a junk trip is always a chaotic process – even more so when your guests are a group of swimsuit-clad party-ers pumped on adrenaline and thirsty for some Vitamin D. But fear not, for The Loop HK has rounded up a few of the city’s most reliable junk caterers to help you on your next sea-bound excursion.
The Bottle Shop
Celebrating its fourth anniversary, The Bottle Shop is now offering three cases of cold ones (Golden Axe Cider, Stone & Wood Green Coast Lager, and Mountain Goat Pale Ale — a total of 24 bottles) for $2,400. If you want to avoid glass-related accidents on board, go for the Moon Dog beer cans instead (one case for $700 or two for $1,200). A three-day pre-order is required and self-pick up on the weekends begins at 8:30am.
