Milestone birthday coming up? Annual Christmas party getting too messy for your fab flat? Best friend’s leaving do creeping up on you? It will be party season before we know it and you’ve got to lock in that location stat. No matter your budget, we’ve got some vivacious venues for your next fete.

For a Stylish Soiree

The Pawn The Rooftop Farm at The Pawn is now open for private events. Your stylish friends already go there for drinks and brunch, and now you can host them all (up to 120 of them!) for a starlit dinner on the private rooftop terrace.

United Services Recreation Club With gorgeous greenery and a chummy colonial feel you won’t believe you are in Jordan. They claim to be “Hong Kong’s best kept secret” and we whole-heartedly agree! With multiple, affordable, banquet options you can get your party started right away.

Bibo Give your boho chic friends a run for their money in this gorgeously decked out dining room with French food, great cocktails and incredible modern art at every turn.

Quest With sleek black and white décor, intimate ambience, and superstar Chef Que Vinh Dang at the helm of the open kitchen, this is the place to dazzle your foodie friends with a dinner party they’ll never forget!

For a Night with Flair

Hungry Hong Kong Yacht Everybody does junk trips, but how many of those have really revolved around eating? Daniel, from foodie blog bible Hungry Hong Kong coordinates delicious dining from some of HK’s top restaurants while you sip champagne (or craft beer!) on a 70-foot luxury yacht. And just because you’re so awesome, Daniel is offering an exclusive 10% discount to DSTS readers when you mention Dim Sum & Then Some when booking.

House of Siren When you really need to up the ante, look no further than House of Siren. Once a very upscale costume designer’s space, after a total renovation you can now have your Christmas cocktails in the most gothically glamorous of settings – think Phantom of the Opera meets Venetian masked ball.

Cococabana Beachside seating and billowy white décor set the stage for the perfect seaside soiree. Take guests away to Shek-O for a totally different party.

The Firm Hair salon by day, party space by night. Gorgeous white space with glass windows looking out to SoHo and affordable prices.

For a Casual Fete

Mahalo Can you ever have a bad time at a tiki bar? Like sister bar Honi Honi in Central expect yummy tropical cocktails but décor is a bit less kitschy and bit more cool. A great place to wish your guests “Mele Kalikimaka” during the holiday season.

Hotshot If fancy is not your flavour this party season, slip on your boyfriend jeans and chucks and meet your besties at Hotshot at The Pulse in Repulse Bay. Burgers, beers, and a DJ pretty much guarantee an awesome party.

Open Door Cafe Nestled in ever changing and always charming Sai Ying Pun, Open Door Café has several options to fit your party. The downstairs courtyard and café is perfect for events with a more cosy feel and upstairs “Platform” is just right with clean blank white walls, a full kitchen and room for 70 guests.

Havana Bar Perched above the madness of LKF is an oasis of mojitos and Buena Vista Social Club. With a beautiful colonial style covered balcony, you’ll transport your guests to Cuba and still have some money in the bank to actually go there yourself with their great drinks packages.
