Celebrate in style, with friends or family!
Where will you be ringing in 2020? Whether you want to celebrate with a big night out or take things easy with your family and the kids, there is a multitude of options from Maximal Concepts this year. The restaurant group, which has a host of Hong Kong’s most popular restaurants and bars in its fold, is offering a variety of parties, exclusive dishes and New Year’s Day lunches at some of its most family-friendly venues.
Celebrate New Year’s Eve with a beachside dinner at Limewood. You can have your fill of Surf & Turf specials such as Grilled Lobster with Black Garlic Butter, a BBQ Australian Wagyu Tomahawk, plus an exclusive “supersized” version of Limewood’s signature pavlova – all perfect for sharing!
Limewood is also hosting a Beach & Beats brunch party on New Year’s Day. If your kids missed out on the food feast the previous night, bring them down to try the specials as well as all the Limewood classics, while a DJ mixes up a storm in the bar. No tickets necessary.
