HK’s Best NYE Parties
There’s something for every partygoer in HK this New Year’s Eve, so get your glad rags on. Whether you fancy jaw-dropping fireworks, cocktail capers or Latin larks, LUXE has the right night out for you…
Sophisticated. Take in stagger harbour views and fireworks at Starck-designed restaurant/bar Felix on The Peninsula’s 28th floor. Book the black tie New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner (HK$4,088) for forecourt cocktails from 7.30pm, followed by dancing and a midnight countdown. The no-res NYE After Dinner bash (HK$500) includes a glass of champers from 8pm and dancing from 10pm.
Clubby. Don black tie for a Rio-revved Copacabana party at KEE Club, boasting a five-course Latin American-inspired dinner, live performances, Brazilian drummers, and music by DJs Rork and Kenji (dinner and party HK$2,500; party only, non-members HK$400 in advance, HK$500 on the door; all including one glass of Veuve).
Jazzy. Chic cocktailer The Woods is hosting a luxey Rat Pack-inspired bash with swing tunes, games and boozy ice-cream. Entry includes an open bar, free-flowing bubbles and speciality cocktails (well hullo, artisanal jello shots!), with silver service midnight nibbles (tickets HK$788 in advance; HK$888 on the door). Book a table (for 5, 10 or 15) for a comp bottle of Veuve.
Riotous. For a Mardi Gras melee of piñatas, tequila n’ tacos bop into Brickhouse, Central’s super-cool Latin laneway bar/resto. Snap up tickets quick for this Colombian-style fiesta, with free-flowing beers, select sips and house spirits, plus late-night bites (HK$650; prebook via Ticketflap). ¡Qué bueno!
