With a Bang

We know you’re the one who usually charms the room with your sparkling smile and captivating charisma.  But you’ll have some competition on October 1st, when all eyes will be on the Chinese National Day fireworks splashing out over the harbour.  From spectacular penthouse window seats to stunning terraces, here are the best places to go out, with a bang…

National Treasures
For an unbeatable culinary experience and some of the best harbour views in town, enjoy a five-course tasting menu at Felix or Gaddis (HK$1,388.00) at the Peninsula Hotel.  As a special treat, you will have access to the hotel’s newly opened, lavish outdoor Sun Terrace to watch the fireworks as you sip on a complimentary glass of champagne.  But if you’re dining at Felix, you may not want to leave the jaw-dropping, or should we say pant-dropping, views behind…the choice is yours! (The Peninsula Hotel, 2920 2888)

Pearl of the Orient
Watch the sky glittering with colourful sparkles as you feast on gems of another kind at Pearl on the Peak.  Their 5-course gastronomic Fireworks Tasting Menu (HK$698) includes their signature dish—the luxurious meat of the pearl producing oyster, jet-fresh from Australia and flash fried with shiitake, chive buds and ginger—among other culinary delights.  Enjoy the 270° views from within or take in your meal on the restaurant’s outdoor terrace—it’s glamorous dining, at its peak!

Royal Banquet
You’re celebrating Chinese National Day, why not do so in the ultimate China-chic style at Hutong? Dine on a palate-pleasing 8-course banquet (HK$1,088) including the famous Crispy De-Boned Lamb Ribs and other saucy sensations, while taking in the fireworks from one of the city’s best vantage points. With all that food, you’ll be waving the red flag in no time! (Hutong, 3428 8342)

Fit for a Chairman
Enjoy the “Best View in the World,” according to the prestigious Virtuoso Luxe Report, as you dine on the exceptional cuisine of the InterContinental Hong Kong.  Both NOBU and SPOON have created mouth-watering 8-course tasting menus (HK$1,288) for you to savour, as you feast your eyes on the fireworks glowing in the dramatic backdrop of the HK skyline.  It’s an experience fit for a king, err, chairman!

Mao to Eat
Relish in a 5-course Firework Dinner Tasting Menu (HK$680) with unbeatable views of Kowloon at H One.  Innovative Chef Harlan Goldstein has prepared a delectable assortment of signature dishes including King Crab Cakes, Handcrafted Pasta with Truffles, Grilled Prime Rib Eye of Beef and a Grand Dessert Surprise.  It’s “the ultimate dining experience,” with the works, what more could you ask for? (H One, 2805 0638)

Tower of Power
Ascend to the Sheraton’s SKY Lounge via a secret outdoor elevator, which provides breathtaking views as it whisks you straight to the penthouse floor.  After your journey, enjoy a 4-course Celebration Dinner (HK$888), including a selection of seafood and oysters from the renowned Oyster and Wine Bar, as you take in one of HK’s best views. Who said life at the top wasn’t easy? (Sheraton, 2369 1111, Ext. 4)
