AUDE­MARS PIGUET

Fresh from the me­mory of its fan­tas­tic Art Basel Hong Kong party at Zuma, Aude­mars Piguet staged a night to re­mem­ber as it took over Kai Tak Cruise Ter­mi­nal in the lead-up to the HK$20 mil­lion 19th Aude­mars Piguet Queen El­iz­a­beth II (QEII) Cup – which it­self took place at Sha Tin Race­course on April 30 – for a gala din­ner.

The ter­mi­nal was con­verted into a sen­sa­tional venue in a flurry of smoke and mir­rors, horse and watch pro­jec­tions, light and mu­sic. Speeches were mer­ci­fully brief, and the star turnout (a heady con­coc­tion of celebrity and so­ci­ety, in­clud­ing Tai­wanese ac­tor Nicky Wu) was great. With live mu­sic on makeshift stages (that’s right, mul­ti­ple stages!), a singer who swung the pen­du­lum from pop to opera, fine-food sta­tions, cigars, bars and more be­sides, the event eas­ily makes our list of this year’s best par­ties.
