The guests dined on signature Hakkasan dishes, including the Steamed Dim Sum Platter, Crispy Duck Salad, Silver Cod with Champagne and Chinese Honey and Stir-Fry Black Pepper Rib-Eye Beef with Merlot. They also indulged in a number of the brand's Las Vegas-specific dishes created by Michelin-starred Executive Chef Ho Chee Boon - the Crispy Roasted Duck with Kumquat and Mustard Sauce and the Steamed Red Snapper in Spicy Assam Sauce.

Following the dinner, guests went on to party the night away at the Ling Ling Lounge and the Ling Ling Club, dancing to DJ Jace One. Upstairs in the club's main room DJs R3hab and Zen Freeman kept the night going.
