Celebrating Your Engagement in Hong Kong

21 December, 2017

Celebrate in true Hong Kong style


Now that he’s popped the question, it’s time for you to share the big news with your nearest and dearest. Not sure how to celebrate? We’ve got you covered! Whether you’re someone who loves a good party or prefers a more intimate, low-key affair for just you and your beau, there’s plenty of options on offer in the 852 – scroll through and check out how you can ring in (ahem) your engagement in style!

A Proper Party:



All aboard! With unbeatable views and a meal catered by aqua, you’re bound to have a truly special evening if you select the Aqua Luna as your venue of choice. You can even tailor the boat’s course to your preferences in order to make sure that the party fits your vision to a tee. For more information on how to book the Aqua Luna for an event, see here!

Host a Dinner Party

Few things go together as well as good food and good friends, so why not celebrate over a quality feed? Either play hostess (and host) in the comfort of your own home and have the meal catered, or head to a restaurant for a fuss-free evening of wining and dining. There’s so many options on offer in Hong Kong: Crafted 852’s Loft Party option allows for a fun and interactive foodie experience, you can splash out on a lavish steak dinner or you can feast on a fine meal with an equally fine view.

Brunch, anyone?

No one does brunch quite like we do in the 852! Here at Sassy, we’re firm believers that brunch is the perfect way to celebrate any and all occasions, and there’s seemingly endless options to pick from in our city! Whether you’re after a boozy brunch (no such thing as too much champagne, right?), a more wallet-friendly venue or something really special, you’ll be spoilt for choice!


Have a Picnic

There’s no shortage of picturesque picnic spots in Hong Kong to host your engagement ‘do! You can even have the gourmet goodies catered (Invisible Kitchen put together fabulous multi-course picnic baskets!), leaving you with the responsibility of hosting and providing some solid tunes. Into the aesthetic but less keen on planning an actual picnic? Look no further than Urban Kitchen for an alfresco dining experience without the hassle (or the ants!).

Hire a Party Tram

If you’re after something a little unconventional, hop onto an authentic, vintage party tram and celebrate in style! Chartering a party tram for your event is a fun alternative to booking a restaurant or bar, and each party is perfectly tailored to all of your celebratory needs. Plus, you can feast on nibbles and champers whilst whizzing around Hong Kong!

Host a Junk party

There’s nothing like a good old fashioned junk party to celebrate your exciting news like a true Hong Konger! Whether you choose to go old-school or splash out on something a little bit more luxe, a junk is a perfect venue for any and all festivities. To make the event even more special, book your sojourn during the evening and celebrate against the backdrop of Hong Kong’s illuminated skyline and harbour.

M Yachts Pontoon Party

In the mood for something really indulgent? Having recently held our own Sassy Social through M Yachts, we can definitely attest to the fact that a pontoon party is a fabulous way to commemorate absolutely any occasion! With gorgeous views beyond compare and seriously serene surroundings, it’s easy to see why this is a perfect way to celebrate your big news with your nearest and dearest.


Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is something of a Hong Kong institution, and with so many delicious options on offer around town, it’s the perfect way to indulge! If you’re in the mood for something a little unusual, celebrate your big news over scones, cakes and more. Sounds like quite an ideal way to par-tea (oh dear) if you ask us!

Host a Cocktail Party

If none of the above appeal to you and your (almost) hubby, a good old- fashioned cocktail party should do the trick! Whether you opt for a more relaxed venue with good vibes like Three Blind Mice or a spot with a jaw-dropping view as well as great tipples, you’re bound to find the perfect venue somewhere in this city.

Just you two…

Not particularly keen on the idea of a big celebration? While most of the above activities can be downsized, we’ve also rounded up a few options for just you and your new beau-to-be.


Helicopter Tour

Already feel like you’re on cloud nine? Soar high above the skyscrapers for a truly intimate, one-of-a-kind experience with a helicopter tour around Hong Kong! Not only is a great way to chip away at your bucket list, but this romantic adventure is the perfect way to see our beloved city from a brand-new point of view. For more information, see here!

Take a hike

Now a hike may not be everyone’s idea of a ‘celebration’, but for all you outdoorsy types, it may well be the perfect way to commemorate your big news! If this sounds like your cup of tea, pack a few goodies (see: champagne), hike to your heart’s content and explore the great outdoors! If you’re keen for something even more romantic, check out our list of night hikes for an intimate evening for just you, your boo and the stars.
