New Year Countdown Party at The Hudson Rooms
Located on the rooftop of Capella Hanoi Hotel with a splendid panoramic view of Hanoi’s historic district, The Hudson Rooms is the perfect place to celebrate New Year’s Eve with family and friends.
Our New Year’s Eve party takes place from 21:30 on December 31 at The Hudson Rooms. Hanoi’s own Grand Central Station will come alive with the red carpets, ticket conductors, fading lights, New York-inspired cocktails and bar bites that tell the story of railroads running across the United States, and of course, Champagne. The last train of the year will transport you to an atmosphere bursting with excitement with our DJ and live performances.
Book a table by our floor to ceiling windows to catch the Hoàn Kiếm fireworks, and come by to toast to a fantastically Happy New Year with us.
The return of Chef Yoshida
Known lovingly as the “House of Senses”, Koki will prepare a very special year-end party for diners by welcoming back Chef Junichi Yoshida, the founder and head chef of Ishigaki Yoshida, the first and only teppanyaki restaurant to ever receive a Michelin star.
Every dining experience with Chef Yoshida is an occasion. Exquisite sourcing of premium Japanese ingredients, starting with our Yaeyama Kyori beef from Okinawa, is the foundation of Chef Yoshida’s approach. His cooking philosophy preserves and honors Japanese culinary art, and carries the spirit of gratitude to nature and the little things we receive in life — a beautiful reminder on the last day of the year.
Book a table at the Hibana or the Izakaya to experience this one in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate New Year with Chef Yoshida, and linger a little longer at Koki’s Akio Lounge to enjoy a warm cup of our exclusive sake.
Cocktail masterpieces by one of the best bartenders in the world
Continuing our guest-shift series with world-renowned bartenders, Akio Lounge and Koki restaurant will be welcoming Kaneko Michito to Hanoi. He is the founder and proprietor of Lamp Bar in Nara, Japan, which was first recognized in 2016 as one of the top 100 bars in the world.

Michito himself was also named “world’s best bartender” after winning the Diageo World Class Global Bartender competition hosted by Diago, beating over 50.000 competitors. His cocktails are known to be subtle, harmonious, and impeccably calibrated.
Michito will be bringing to Hanoi a curated menu of 4 unique cocktails, some of which will incorporate Kinobi Gin as the base.
