On-Air Tastings
One of the highlights of this year’s Wine & Dine Festival is the On-Air Tastings. Tune in to our nine free online programmes at your convenience to hit the trendiest drinking scenes.
City Wine Walk
Launched for the first time, the City Wine Walk covers Central, Wan Chai, Tsim Sha Tsui and up-and-coming Kennedy Town which boasts a chillaxing vibe. These neighbourhoods feature numerous trendy wining and dining locations that you can explore on your next visit to Hong Kong.
To whet your appetite, here are a couple of neighbourhoods to check out:
“Drinks Adventures @Central” is designed for lovers of wine and liquor. The bars featured on the route include acclaimed bars on the “Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2021” list. Experiences on offer include autumn cocktails and dim sum pairing and Japanese sake ice cream.
Kennedy Town
If your clients are seeking a more casual experience, we suggest the “Sit Back & Chill @Kennedy Town" route, where one can explore trendy eateries along the waterfront or in artsy alleyways, sip “coffee by day, cocktails by night” and take great snaps for social media.
M+ Museum
The M+ art museum opened on 12th November! Located within the West Kowloon Cultural District, the 65,000sq m venue is designed by renowned Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron – the brilliant minds behind the creation of Tate Modern in London, and famous structures such as the Beijing National Stadium (aka the Bird's Nest) and Prada's flagship store in Tokyo – in partnership with architecture firms TFP Farrells and Arup.
New Year Countdown Celebrations
With the pandemic largely under control this year, the New Year Countdown is moving to the West Kowloon arts hub for the first time.
“We are confident in hosting a world-class countdown concert to show global audiences Hong Kong’s exciting and energetic spirit as we step into the New Year while catering to the needs of public hygiene and anti-pandemic measures,” said Dane Cheng, HKTB’s Executive Director.
