Top Merchants 2018: Places You Love

FOOD & DRINK WINNER: Cali-Mex Bar & Grill

Launching menu items with options to substitute meat for the plant-based Impossible alternative. Collaborating with celebrity chef Nate Green on an all-new gourmet burger edit. Opening up more branches close to where we live and work. Cali-Mex has had a huge year and the proof is in our members having consumed over 6,500 main courses at their outlets, making Cali-Mex Bar & Grill the year’s Favourite Merchant!

Runner-up: Dan Ryan’s Chicago Grill

Dan Ryan’s is close behind with over 6,000 main courses enjoyed on the ENTERTAINER app. Old timers will remember Dan Ryan’s for their giveaway balloons which always came with a free branded keychain. This Americana-themed resto has five different burgers our members love: the Classic Cheese Burger, the Smokehouse (with smoked bacon & house BBQ sauce), the Texican (below), the Deluxe Chili, and the Napa – which is splashed with California Cabernet Sauvignon.

Runner-up: Emack & Bolio’s

NO ONE can literally claim they haven’t been tempted to grab an ice cream from Emack & Bolio’s branches, even if for the Instagram opportunity alone. You’ve enjoyed over 4,600 scoops of E&B ice cream on the ENTERTAINER app. Whether you’re trying to cool down from HK’s heat & humidity combo or you’re looking for a no fuss post-hotpot dessert or you’re dealing with heartbreak, E&B has always been there for you like a comforting friend.


As if we needed further proof that life in HK can be stressful, our B&F category winner is upscale urban spa, The Right Spot. You’ve had a helluva year self-caring, so congrats for that! You loved getting pampered with their signature hot oil massage and gel mani & pedi – both at 50% off.

Runner-up: Spa L’Occitane

Incredible products. Luxurious robes and towels. Topnotch service at only the best ambiance. Is there any wonder this global powerhouse is among our 2018 winners? This year, our members collectively saved over HKD110,000 on the Immortelle Divine Secret face, neck and décolleté skin treatment.

ATTRACTIONS & LEISURE WINNER: Ryze Ultimate Trampoline Park

This year, you spent over 1,000 hours bouncing on trampolines, flying through the ninja obstacle course, sailing across trapezes, swimming in foam pits and more. That’s capital F-U-N!

Runner-up: LOST

Clearly, many fancy themselves as some type of a Sherlock Holmes, willingly getting locked up escape rooms. You’ve had to solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives before time runs out – and you’ve come out victorious at the other end. Congrats!

RETAIL WINNER: Feather & Bone

This year’s winning items at Feather & Bone include premium beer, wine, spirits, cut-to-order cheeses and meats at the butcher’s counter. Isn’t it delightful to have a little bit of an upgrade to our usual grocery day?

Runner-up: John Masters Organics

Organic, natural ingredients that are good for us and the world we live in – yes, yes, yes and yes. This mindful, global beauty brand came into the app just this year and already, its line of hair, skin and body care is proving to be among your favourites.


It’s a known fact, we love having our photos taken. But for occasions when we required something a little fancier than a selfie, we found our way to Owl Photo Studio. Smile! 1,2,3… click!
