No one knows how to party like Hong Kong Tatler Listers, who are the first on the list for the hottest events in town.

Our fast-paced city is the perfect backdrop for the latest goings-on, and 2019 was undoubtedly an action-packed year filled with glitzy galas and star-studded parties. In case you missed any of them, let's take a look back at some of the most exclusive, memorable events happened this year:

More than 150 of the city’s young movers and shakers gathered aboard the Crystal Symphony, one of the world’s most luxurious cruise ships, for a party to celebrate Hong Kong Tatler’s inaugural Scions Issue, which introduced the new guard driving today’s luxury economy.

Many embraced the glam nautical dress code, donning Breton striped shirts, navy blazers and other stylish get-ups fit for the high seas. Eleanor Lam, Antonia Li, Joanna Lui-Hickox and our May 2019 cover star, Loui Lim, were just a few of the guests wearing stylish shoes from Giuseppe Zanotti. We also spotted Edwin Pun, René Chu and Feiping Chang wearing exquisite timepieces by Breguet.

When Adrian Cheng dreamed up K11 ARTUS, the ultra-luxe full-service residence next to the Rosewood Hong Kong, he tapped renowned local architect André Fu to build his ideal “artisanal home.”

To celebrate its opening, André threw a lavish dinner for his friends. The residence’s salon was transformed into a Moroccan-inspired dining room for the night, where more than 200 Moroccan lanterns and an array of Islamic arches helped set the mood. The guest list of 32 was just as impressive and included Jonathan Cheung, Anne Wang-Liu, Evan Chow and Emily Lam-Ho.
