What's On: January 27-February 2

From gastronomic adventures to unmissable events, if it’s hip and happening, we’ll make sure you’re the first to know.

Curry Club
Union Bar and Grill, 42 Strand Road, Botahtaung township

If you haven’t tried Union’s new east-meets-west fusion menu yet what you’d best get down there pronto. Weekend tried the new selection of Myanmar curries and we’re more than a little bit in love with the delicious northern chicken, pineapple and peanut. And if you, like us, have a soft spot for a samosa salad, their unique take on the traditional dish is to die for. Visit on a Tuesday for Curry Club and enjoy one of the new curries with a pint of Heineken or glass of house wine for only K12,000. So what are you waiting for? Keep calm and curry on.

Institut Francais, 340 Pyay Road, Sanchaung township
January 28, 10pm

Fab is back, and this time it’s bigger than ever with performances by Thai Superstar Pangina Heals, Ar-T and tunes courtesy of DJ Wine and DJ C-Thu. Avoid the K5000 door charge by arriving before 10pm for the free &PROUD film program (see below).

‘Works of Reason’ by Kaung Su
New Zero Art Space, United Condo, 202 Alan Pya Pagoda Road, Dagon township
Until February 3

Cosmic disasters; climate issues; mankind’s harmful effects on the planet. Sound intense? Welcome to the creative mind of Kaung Su, who’s solo exhibition “Works of Reason” is on display until February 3 at New Zero Art Space. And if you fancy buying one of his, er, “unusual” artworks, made from materials such as human hair and burnt clothes, be prepared to spend anywhere from US$600 to $4000.

&PROUD LGBT Film Festival
Institut Francais, 340 Pyay Road, Sanchaung township
January 26-29, 7-11pm

The &PROUD LGBT Film Festival is back for its third edition, with four days of films on Asian LGBT lives, performances, debates and filmmaker Q&As, all from our open air festival site at the French Institute.
