The Best Places to Celebrate with Your Friends This Year 5 December, 2019 Beverages Food Lifestyle LKF’s “Spread the Love” Campaign Makes it Easier than Ever to Celebrate with Your BFFs Grab the squad and spread some cheer with LKF’s “Spread the Love” Campaign, which has created a ton of amazing offers and menus to help you celebrate this season. But of course, different restaurants cater to different crowds. So, this week we’ve rounded up some of the best restaurants to celebrate with your mates, whether it’s an office party or a pre-Christmas get-together. Read on to find out where you can find the best deals for your next friends-night-out in Lan Kwai Fong. Bari-Uma Ramen Nothing warms the soul on a chilly day quite like a hot bowl of ramen. Served piping hot, with fresh noodles and decadent broth, everyone loves ramen. And it’s hard to find a better bowl of ramen than at Bari-Uma, which roughly translates to super tasty! They ship their broth in from Japan every day, and make their noodles fresh inside the store, so it’s bari uma indeed. Check out all delightful offers here. Bari-Uma RamenG/F, 22 D’Aguilar Street, Central HoChi Melb Usually made from a slow-simmered beef bone broth, pho is a thing of simple beauty. Good pho is complex. It’s a bit sweet, salty, sour and even acidic- and everybody loves it. That’s what you get at HoChi Melb, a newly opened Vietnamese restaurant in Central. They also have a host of other traditional Vietnamese favourites like hot spring roll, lemongrass beef vermicelli and grilled chicken that won’t break the bank. Order a few and share with the whole group for a really nice (and affordable) dinner out. Plus, they serve some of the best Vietnamese iced coffee in town, so you can have the energy to party all night. Check out all delightful offers here. HoChi Melb G/F, 16 Wo On Lane, Lan Kwai Fong Ivan the Kozak Hong Kong is a food-lover’s playground, because we get to enjoy almost every type of cuisine imaginable. But while we’re spoiled for choice with European options, it’s rare to find a good Eastern European spot. That’s why we love Ivan the Kozak, a family-run restaurant that has been serving authentic Russian and Ukrainian dishes since 2001. If you’ve never tried it varenyky (Ukrainian dumplings) or other dishes, now’s your chance, they’re offering great deals for LKF’s ‘Spread the Love’ campaign. Check out all delightful offers here. Ivan the Kozak 1/F, Parekh House, 63 Wyndham Street, Central; +852 2851 1193 Runway Hong Kong Get all the fun of a group holiday with none of the stress at Runway Hong Kong, a 1950s-style flight-inspired bar. Everything here speaks of adventure and travel, making it the perfect spot to plan your future getaways. In addition to very tempting cocktails, they’ve got a tasty menu too! Everyone in the gang can find something to eat, whether it’s a light bite off the ‘Preflights Snack’ section, or a hearty steak. This is a definite crowd pleaser. Check out all delightful offers here. Runway Hong Kong Shop B, G/F Carfield Commercial Building Podium, 75-77 Wyndham Street, Central; +852 2827 9022 The Code Want to celebrate with a big group? Then you need to head to The Code, one of the coolest bars and event spaces in the city. This 4,000 square foot space is large enough to accommodate even the most massive celebration, but it somehow still feels cosy when you’re sitting on one of their chic sofas. This one is a move for those big end-of-year work-dos, as there will be plenty of space to mingle with the people you love (and avoid the ones you don’t!) Check out all delightful offers here. The Code 17/F, The L. Place, 139 Queen’s Road Central, Central; +852 2626 0506 The Lighthouse Sometimes the best nights out are the simplest: a few pints with your best mates at your local pub. That’s exactly what you get at The Lighthouse, a local pub (with a pretty impressive DJ). This is the place to go for a no frills, no fuss evening. Just good beer, good tunes and great company. It’s even better when you take advantage of the special deals from LKF’s “Spread the Love” campaign. Check out all delightful offers here. The Lighthouse17/F, The L Place, 139 Queen’s Road Central, Central Metro Another Lan Kwai Fong favourite, Metro is one of the clubs that lines the strip. On any given night, you can find groups dancing inside, or enjoying a relaxing pint after work on the al fresco patio. Why not grab your mates and join them? As one of the busiest spots in town, you’re basically guaranteed a good night. They do it all, from cocktails, to pints, delicious meals and a very generous happy hour. Even better, they’re offering special discounts for LKF’s ‘Spread the Love’. Cheers to that! Check out all delightful offers here. Metro Shop F, G/F, Winner Building, Block A, 27-39 D’Aguilar Street, 13-17 Wing Wah Lane, Central; +852 2711 6077 Naanza Bar + Kitchen Is there anything nicer than gathering with friends over the holidays? Yes, actually – gathering with your friends, and shisha, and cocktails and some delicious naan pizza. Have it all at Naanza Bar + Kitchen, the city’s first Indian-Italian restaurant. They want to help everyone celebrate this year, so they’ve created a special offer just for LKF’s “Spread the Love” campaign. This is a great option for a casual, after work hang out before people leave on their respective adventures. Check out all delightful offers here. Naanza Bar + Kitchen LG/F 31C-31D Wyndham Street, Central; +852 9772 0014 China Bar The China Bar is a Lan Kwai Fong institution, and should be on your radar when it comes to end-of-year celebrations. Not only is it one of the best bars to party in, they also serve great snacks and classic meals so you keep your energy up all night long. Their resident DJ’s start spinning after dark and make the dance floor one of the best places to be until the early hours. Maybe this is a better option for non-work friends, because things might get messy. Check out all delightful offers here. The China BarHo Lee Commercial Building, 38-44 D’Aguilar Street, Central; +852 2526 5992 Point One Bar A good bar is hard to find, which is why we love Point One Bar. It’s cosy and intimate, exactly the type of place to spend an evening with friends. Point One Bar tends to fly under the radar of most people, but you should definitely make a visit with your crew soon. During the “Spread the Love” campaign is a great time to visit, because they’re offering two draft beers for just HK$88. If you’re feeling peckish, add on a choice of bar snack, like French fries, chicken wings or chicken cartilage with your beers for HK$128 – making it one of the best bar deals in town. But if you really want to treat yourself, you can also get two draft beers and four select dishes for just HK$168 – that offer is pretty hard to beat! Check out all delightful offers here.
