Best hotel restaurants in Hong Kong for Chinese New Year Fireworks Dinners
If you’re in Hong Kong on January 29th make sure you have a room with a view – of Victoria Harbour for the Chinese New Year fireworks. Here’s our lucky number eight for firework dinners:
View of the fireworks in the harbour from the Intercontinental hotel
The Interconti is perched right on the harbour’s edge so many of the guest rooms have fantastic views as well as the Harbourside restaurant and Nobu if you can bag a window table. Both restaurants are offering a Chinese New Year Fireworks Dinner Menu.
The Pen is offering a special set dinner at each of the hotel’s restaurants on 29th January. Each dining experience includes an exclusive invitation to view the Chinese New Year fireworks from The Peninsula’s Sun Terrace, where guests can enjoy views of Victoria Harbour with a complimentary glass of champagne.
And guests who book a minimum 90-minute spa treatment at The Peninsula Spa will receive a complimentary 30-minute Oriental Scalp Massage with Pink Hair and Scalp Mud to symbolise good fortune in the New Year as the colour pink represents good fortune in Chinese tradition.
Tosca at the Ritz Carlton Hong Kong
Many of the rooms have dizzying views of the harbour (check you are facing the right way) but perhaps the best is from Tosca the hotel’s Italian fine dining restaurant. On January 29th Tosca is holding a Chinese New Year dinner between 6 pm – 10:30 pm (the fireworks starts at 8pm) for HK$2,180 (plus 10% service charge) per guest.
Pierre will be open on the evening of Sunday 29th January especially for the Chinese New Year celebrations. Both an à la carte menu and a six-course tasting menu (at HKD1,898 per person) will be available for guests to enjoy while watching the fireworks display over Victoria Harbour.
Island Shangri La
The gorgeous Petrus restaurant on the 56th floor of the Island Shangri La will have a fabulous view of the fireworks in Victoria Harbour on January 29th. A wonderful backdrop for the French fine dining menu by Chef Ricardo Chaneton.
The Upper House
Dinner at Café Gray Deluxe will have an impressive view of the Chinese New Year Fireworks above Victoria Harbour at 8pm. The five-course menu will include Fine de Claire Oyster with Mandarin Granite, Double Boiled Oxtail Consommé with Truffle and Cabbage Dumplings, and main courses of XO-Butter Poached Maine Lobster with Sautéed Pea Sprouts and Black Tea Glazed Pigeon with Foie Gras Pastilla (priced from HKD1,228)
The Four Seasons
For in house guests only on 29th January, The Four Seasons is offering a special Lunar New Year barbecue at the Pool Terrace restaurant – one of the best views over the harbour. The menu by Executive Chef Andrea Accordi includes a choice of starter plus a choice of either Seafood Platter or Meat Platter from the grill. The dinner, priced at HKD688 per adult and HKD388 per child, includes sides and a selection of Chinese New Year inspired desserts.
If you’re not staying at the hotel you may want to opt for the special New Year’s menus at Lung King Heen, The Four Seasons’ 3 Michelin starred Cantonese restaurant.
One Harbour Road restaurant will offer guests an “auspicious menu” of 12 seasonal celebratory dishes. All the dishes have been named according to the Lunar New Year blessings including The Wellness of All (Baked crab shell filled with fresh crab meat, cheese and onion), The Splendid Fortune (Braised sun dried oyster, sea moss and black mushroom with carrot) and The Golden Gem (Braised black mushroom filled with shrimp mousse and sea moss, fresh abalone).
