Let’s Glow Under the Stars
You know what kind of party we like? The ones with unlimited canapes and free-flowing drinks. This year, AIRE BAR at Hyatt Place is hosting a NYE bash that gives you just that and a bunch more. The hotel is opening its rooftop venue for its “Let’s Glow Under the Stars” party—make sure to don your best white outfit (or something that glows). There will be live music until late, a massive buffet filled with Western classics, and live pasta and carving stations until 11pm, as well as drinks with light bites until 1am. Packages start from B2,020 and go up to B32,000 depending on how many people you bring and how luxe you want the whole event to be (get 20-percent off if you book by Dec. 20). No matter what you choose, you get a great view of the fireworks under the stars with a cool breeze at your back.
Dec 31, 9pm-late, AIRE BAR at Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit.
