The Ultimate Birthday Party Guide – Hong Kong

Reading Time: 11 minutesWhatever occasion you’re celebrating, you want to make it special and – in these busy times – easy to organise! With Hong Kong homes being on the small side (to say the least), the trend is to host parties at an external venue. Many places offer activities, catering and some little extras, read on to see what piques your interest in our ultimate birthday party guide. We’ve also compiled a list of entertainers and suppliers to help the party go down a treat.

Best Kids Party Ideas and Venues

Kids at a neon party

Sketch Studios

Let your little artist go wild with an art party in the dark at Hong Kong’s blacklight art studio, Sketch Studios. They hold blacklight/UV art sessions for kids that contain a mixture of painting, music, drawing, using chalk on walls, creative accessorising with neon items like masks, headbands, bracelets, sunglasses, face paint and wigs. They also welcome parents and will open their rooftop for the oldies to hang out while the kids go crazy inside. You can even bring your own wine! Cost: Parties here start from HK$250 per person for a standard package and $300 for a deluxe package.
