If you’re looking for plot, one that differs from the normal nights out and dodging of police road blocks, we got something for you, the Glass Market at B.SoUg- a collaboration with Afrika Arts Kollective and Ekilawuli Kollectors. It’s a day time type of vibe that turns over into evening, drinks, music, and custom made recycled drinking glasses all within one of the best restaurants in Kampala.
The first iteration was lit- an afternoon-long party in the sun, sounds of glass cutting interspersed with the reggae vibes of Ras Brown from the decks, plates of beetroot stained chickpeas rolled in chapati making the rounds. The party went on well into the night, bottles of wine flowed and exclusive cocktails were passed around.
To cap all that off, those who attended the event went home with a drinking glass made out of a liquor bottle, made by artisans on the grounds of the party itself. If you’re going to catch a vibe and some libations on a random weekend afternoon, why not recycle a bit and support local artists in the process? Just like we suspected- there’s not a truly valid reason not to come through next week.
Now, the next iteration is coming, and it’s just around the corner on Saturday, June 5th at B.SoUg in Bukoto (on the slope down from Oryx). The proceedings start at around noon and continue on until around eight (just in time for that good old curfew cut-off). There’s a happy hour for wines and spirits starting from noon as well- just in case we haven’t convinced you yet.
