If Christmas is spent with family, then New Year’s Eve is spent with friends. There have been so many festivities of late that it is hard to believe this will be the first New Year’s Eve without any Covid-19 restrictions and will mark the return of the countdown fireworks in Hong Kong after a five-year break.

Whether you are celebrating the arrival of 2024 in style or quietly, we have got you covered.

1. Sevva

Sevva closes in May 2024 and this will be your last chance to party there. The black tie affair will feature a six-course dinner (HK$4,380 or US$560), a glass of Dom Perignon, and a five-piece band.
