The Optimist and Pirata Join Forces for their First Glamorous New Year’s Eve Blowout

September 22, 2016 Dining No Comments Email Email

image022Step out of 2016 and into the golden age of film this 31 December with a show stopping Vintage Hollywood New Year’s Eve party, spanning across the chic interiors of both The Optimist and Pirata. In partnership with Just Tuesdays, both restaurants are taking their cue from the silver screens of classic Hollywood and will set the scene for a glitzy countdown celebration to remember. Early bird tickets now available for packages starting from HKD588, grab them here now.

French music label FuFu will be manning the decks with some of Hong Kong’s top DJs alongside dancers, Hollywood lookalikes, vintage nostalgic popcorn machines and photo booths. With enough entertainment to do Marilyn Monroe proud, The Optimist and Pirata’s first ever New Year’s Eve party will be the talk of the town. No celebration would be true to their culinary spirits without the tastes of Italy and Spain fuelling the party crowd: expect a cocktail standing dinner with an endless flow of delicacies, live food stations brimming with signature dishes and an open bar to keep the countdown lively, view menus here.


Both located at 239 Hennessey Road, The Optimist and Pirata are distinctly authentic European restaurants. The Optimist serves up mouth-watering grilled classics inspired by Northern Spain’s asador flavours with an incredible seafood and meat selection and Pirata has its roots in Italian comfort food that would make any Italian grandmother proud. Wash it all down with an inclusive free-flow drinks options which include the flirty raspberry Coolimistic cocktail, The Optimist Sangria, Pirata Negroni Punch, Prosecco, house spirits, wine and beer.

Whether partygoers are dropping by for a standing cocktail dinner before flitting off for the fireworks, need a place to shout out the last seconds of 2016 or are looking for a party base from dinner till the wee hours of the morning, there are a number of affordably priced party tickets to keep everyone grinning all night long.


Partygoers can choose from three ticket options including a Pre-Countdown Package which includes a standing cocktail dinner and free-flow drinks from 7pm-10pm (HKD888, early bird HKD688), the Ultimate Countdown Package, which includes all the same perks but with a longer time stamp of 7pm-2am (HKD1488, early bird HKD1188) or the Party Package for those who want to ring in the New Year with free-flow drinks from 10pm-2am (HKD788, early bird HKD588).
