Rockin’ New Year’s Eve

Dick Clark and the boys have been rockin’ it in Times Square, New York since ’72, while our Aussie mates have gotten lit under the fireworks in Sydney Harbour for over a decade and our British blokes have seen stars through the London Eye since the stroke of the new millennium. It’s about time we take the party to the hottest city on the globe… cause our Times Square sees more people on any given night than New York’s does on NYE, Sydney’s bridge ain’t got a thing on our dual skyline and the Peak Tram gets us three times as high as London’s Eye! C’mon Hong Kong, break out the noisemakers, slip on the sequins and pop open the champagne, 2008 is beckoning. Let the countdown begin…

FIVE
Travel back in time to the “Roaring 20’s” for KEE Club’s Gatsby Le Magnifique. This exceptionally elegant Casino Night will take you back to the glamorous and fun-filled era of gangsters & molls. Don a feather boa, whip out your cigarette holder and join in the illicit gambling and drinking, while showing off your Charleston from 8:30pm till dawn. Join your most fashionable friends for a decadent buffet dinner, flowing champagne, fine wine, a festive late-night supper and complimentary gaming chips in a lavish party that Daisy Buchanan would be proud of! (HK$1288, 2810 9000; Note: 12% of the total revenue from the evening will be donated to Operation Smile)

FOUR
Say farewell to 2007 with the Viceroy’s Bond & the Beautiful New Year’s Eve Ball. Secret agents can take cover in one of three venues with all-night open bar, free-flowing champagne, international dinner buffet, chill out martini lounge and hangover breakfast until 3am. Enjoy your martinis shaken not stirred at the Sapphire Shooter Bar and dance ‘til dawn with a live DJ at the Diamond Dome Disco. After a few drinks, he may even start to look like Daniel Craig as you steal a smoldering kiss on one of three terraces overlooking the harbour. (HK$988, 2827 7777)

THREE
Don’t cha wish you could spend NYE with some of the hottest girls on the planet? Your prayers have been answered. Pussycat Dolls will be putting on a special New Year’s Eve concert at The Venetian Arena. These sultry sirens will be performing some of their hit singles including “Don’t Cha” and “Beep” and lead singer Nicole Scherzinger will give the audience a sneak preview of her soon to be released debut solo album. Loosen up your buttons and prepare to be blown away! (MOP$600+, (853) 2882 8818, http://www.venetianmacaotickets.com)

Rev up your engines and get ready to zoom into 2008 with a sublime NYE dinner and party at Zuma.

Switch gears for an incredible tasting menu of some of the restaurant’s most renowned dishes including teriyaki-marinated duck breast, Wagyu beef, miso-marinated foie gras, grilled baby lobster and a sumptuous dessert selection. Cross the finish line as you toast to the start of 2008 with a few of Zuma’s renowned bellinis and groove to international sounds in the sleek upstairs lounge. (Dinner: HK$1,688, 3657 6388)
