Our Hearts Are In Havana: Countdown To 2019 At The St Regis Kuala Lumpur
1/5 Dress Up But Let Your Hair Down
After a hectic year replete with formal functions and pompous ceremonies, the last thing we want is to hew to strict dress codes or be subjected to scrutiny from surly doormen. Thankfully, there's none of that hogwash at the "Havana Nights" gala dinner at the Astor Ballroom. Far from a black tie affair, the tropical-themed fête on December 31st 2018 invites you to swap your bowtie for a Panama hat, or your crushing corset for a comfortable dress.
2/5 Mojito Madness
'Mint' to win you over, the Mojito station at the "Havana Nights" gala gives you full control over the sweetness of and ingredients in your libation. Chow down on South American specialities such as beef empanadas, papas rellenas, and churros accompanied by dips. Full access to a free-flow of food & drink costs MYR588+; tack on RM300 if you're after that ABV. Any kid under the age of 5 dines for free if accompanied by a full paying adult, whereas children aged 5 to 12 years are charged half price!
3/5 Sí, Sí, Un Cigarro!
Cigar enthusiasts should take advantage of this rare rendezvous: a special guest at the "Havana Nights" gala, Yesser Ferrera is a third-generation tobacco grower from Honduras. Can you tell a cigar's wrapper from its binder and its band from its body? Demystify cigar jargon and learn how to roll one yourself from Yesser, a representative of Puro Aliados cigar factory.
4/5 Romantic Nooks & Crannies
Maybe a party isn't hot on your list of priorities. If romance is what you're really after, invite that special someone to spend New Year's Eve at Astor Bar instead. We can't think of a better place to canoodle over canapés and Champagne. Drinks are à la carte, but MYR 95+ entitles you to a wide variety of bites. Make an impression on your hot date with this fun fact: The Astor Bar is where Astrid makes her first appearance in 'Crazy Rich Asians,' the highest-grossing romance-comedy of 2018.
5/5 A Stellar View Of The Fireworks
Love pyrotechnics as much as we do? Then trust us when we say that the fireworks display at the St Regis Hotel is unparalleled! Join the New Year’s Eve Countdown Party at Crystal, a dual-level rooftop bar, to witness 600 shots of fireworks lasting a whole 10 minutes. But the party doesn't end there—live DJs will ensure there is dancing under the stars until sunrise. Access to the party is priced at MYR95+ per pax and includes one beverage. Come with your chums to book a private cabana (provided you meet the minimum spend).
