Hong Kong’s Wine & Dine Festival is Back

Hong Kong’s Wine & Dine Festival is back in town from November 1 to 30 with over 700 bars and restaurants taking part. The program run by the Hong Kong Tourism board is a great way for people to discover new cocktails, gourmet dishes and water-front views at a discounted price. 

Customers who signed up early got the chance to win coupons worth HKD$100 or HKD$150. At the moment, all of the 50,000 coupons released have been claimed, but the festival still features a couple of discounts to be used until November 30. 

“The Festival is a great way to bring more exposure to a lot of food & beverage businesses that have truly struggled over the pandemic,” Gagan Gurung from Tell Camellia said. “It’s also a great way for people to try new things!” Tell Camellia is one of the participating bars located in Central. 

The festival offers a large selection of places to visit, but to make it simpler, here is a list of 6 spots to try before the festival is over! 

Wine & Dine Date Night | Zoku at the Hari

The offer: Wine and Gourmet Food Tasting Combo

This is the perfect set for a date night. For HKD$150 dollars, it comes with a soft shell crab roll paired with a Pisco-based Nikkei. Order two (or more) and you’ll be set!
